Overview

The Alpha Thin Splash has a full, bright, silvery sound. Medium range, fairly clean mix. Fast sizzling attack, with quick fade. The Paiste Alpha has a responsive feel. A dynamic, universal splash cymbal for multi-purpose application in most styles.

Alpha Cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Since then, the Alpha Series has been highly successful on an international scale. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well-known for their first-class sound and fair prices. In 2006, Paiste presented a completely revamped Alpha, which advanced these trusted qualities and took Alpha cymbals to a new level.

In recent years, Paiste has invested heavily in the perfection of its high-tech processes, seeking to faithfully reproduce the principles of Swiss hand craftsmanship in its modern production facility in Germany. The updated Alpha cymbals are manufactured using this top-notch technology. They are then enhanced using traditional hand hammering. The combination of hi-tech and traditional methods brings about never before realized quality levels in a highly efficient production environment. Alpha cymbals thus fulfill high demands in quality and function while taking into account the financial realities of today's active drummers.

Paiste designed the updated Alpha series specifically with the global demands of today's music in mind. Global music increasingly combines stylistic and cultural backgrounds into new musical forms, requiring cymbals with wider application range. By applying modern design concepts to the individual models including the Alpha Thin Splash Cymbal, Paiste has met these requirements convincingly. The assortment offers a wide choice of models and sizes, and covers a wide range of music styles. It allows the drummer an optimal variety of sounds in the cymbal set. Despite all of these improvements, the company is offering the new Alpha cymbals at unchanged retail prices.

Great splash!

By Devin A.

from Grand Rapids, Michigan

Comments about Paiste Alpha Thin Splash Cymbal:

I got this cymbal today for 2 reasons. The price was very reasonable, and because the sound really got my attention. I liked it better than some of the higher line of splashes there. The sound is bright and quick in attack and decay. This cymbal is great for the price and you'll love it. If you have some more cash i also recommend the 10 in Zildjian a series splash which was also impress.

Love It!

By Sedge

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Paiste Alpha Thin Splash Cymbal:

I really love the sound of this cymbal (I have the 10" and plan on getting the 8"). It is really quick with short sustain and fairly dry sounding. I also love the way it looks and its got a pretty sweet price.

Alpha splash, 8" & 10"

By Anz Martin Lopez

from Dhaka, Bangladesh

Comments about Paiste Alpha Thin Splash Cymbal:

[Note : the review is for the new alpha splash, 8" & 10"] 8" & 10" Alpha Thin Splashes: (weight: 0.4 & 0.63 pounds respectively) The 8" & 10" alpha splashes sounds quite good and serves the purpose well, but i like the sound of the old alpha splash which is a little heavier than the current model. The 8" accompanies the 10" quite well. Overall nice splashes for the price.
