      Comments about Paiste Signature Series Dark MKI Energy Crash Cymbal:

      I am a long time Paiste signature cymbal owner. I have about 7 in my line up. I just purchased the 16" and 18" Dark energy. They are bright yet a little dark. They just explode with a little lower tone then the power crash. Expensive but worth every penny.

      Grease that sounds so tasty...

      By JOHN STINSON

      from Arroyo Grande

      Comments about Paiste Signature Series Dark MKI Energy Crash Cymbal:

      I have an affinity for odd sized cymbals. But especially 17" models. Out of the packing box this cymbal looked ready for some serious shredding. Took it on a job with a second line groove; it spanked the accents with a clean and shimmering crash! And coupling it with my Twenty Series 17" crash made for a fat hihat combo, reminiscent of Doug Clifford's set up with CCR. Too cool all around. Thanks for making this all possible, GC. I usually don't purchase cymbals without seeing and touching them; in this case any reservations have become a moot point!

      Phenomenal Dark Cymbal

      By TVTjoey

      from Orange, CA

      Comments about Paiste Signature Series Dark MKI Energy Crash Cymbal:

      Once again Paiste has impressed me with another perfect cymbal! I just bought the 19" and it is exactly what i was looking for. Medium Thin cymbals are my favorite weight, but this cymbal does not speak quickly or decay quickly, like many thin cymbals. this has a thriving wash, and is just as suitably used as a very washy Jazz ride. i use it mainly for crash riding. it is truly musical. has a lovely low toned crash. It is perfect for mallet rolls also. the bell is very nice and high pitched also. This thing can either purr like a kitten, or ROAR like a lion. it is VERY sensitive and doesn't take much effort to get it roaring, which saves energy!

      The Beauty of the Dark

      By Tama Starry Eyed Classic

      from Sun Prairie, WI

      Comments about Paiste Signature Series Dark MKI Energy Crash Cymbal:

      I have officially received the last of my crashes. I now have 7 and have completed my family. I just got my 17" after much anticipation. My new sweetheart hisses. I have all Signatures, and this is by far the darkest (which is the reason I bought it). I now have the brightest (Crystal) to the darkest (MK Dark Energy). I couldn't be happier with my balanced mix of Paiste beauties. Beautiful, beautiful cymbals that will bring a tear to your eye.

      Great Crash

      By Skinzlivez

      from Atlanta, GA

      Comments about Paiste Signature Series Dark MKI Energy Crash Cymbal:

      This is a cymbal that is as beautiful sonically as it is aesthetically. I own the 18" model, and it is a stunning and impressve presence on a kit. When crashed, this cymbal explodes with a dark and complex mix of overtones and midrange cut. It would work well for nearly any kind of music, but I prefer it with high volume situations where you can really smash it, and it's powerful attributes can shine. Overall, it's a very nice cymbal, well worth the money, and will last for many years.

      incredible cymbal

      By nodnarb

      from kansas city

      Comments about Paiste Signature Series Dark MKI Energy Crash Cymbal:

      This is an awesome cymbal. You better really like dark sounding cymbals if you're going to get this one because its extremely low pitched and DARK. And I mean dark. Its explosive. It has quite a bit of washy sustain, but it blends in really well with other sounds. The sustain is very earthy, almost sizzly. Sounds very mysterious, almost etheral? I guess you could say. I have the 18" model and no signs of cracking, Ive only had it about a month though. Paiste did a fantastic job on this bad boy.

      It's my baby now!!!

      By phoenix7289

      from Buffalo Grove, IL US

      Comments about Paiste Signature Series Dark MKI Energy Crash Cymbal:

      I got an 18" one of these not long ago, actually about a week ago, and MAN, I love the thing!!! It is LOUD!!! If you are looking for a LOUD cymbal, don't look to Sabian or Zildjian, Paiste has been making cymbals longer, and has more people using them professionally for a reason! Paiste IS and WILL ALWAYS BE the BEST!!! This cymbal is a true testament to Paiste's abilities!!! I seriously can't get enough of this cymbal, it used to be that I would hit my Sabian Vault 16" crash all the time, now it's this!!! GET THIS ONE!!!
