One of the biggest cymbal makers is showing some upcoming goods!
During this year’s NAMM Show we will see some brand new feature from the one and only Paiste Cymbals! Let’s see what’s going to hit our eyes!
1. Paiste 900 Series looks really great!
The 900 Series is crafted from 2002 Bronze, known for its legendary warmth, brilliance and strength. In sophisticated hybrid manufacturing the cymbals are refined with Swiss craftsmanship by hand hammering and lathing. A special finish slightly darkens the cymbals and amplifies the lathing grooves and hammer marks for a spectacular appearance that fuses roughness and elegance. Definately worth waiting for!
2. Additions to such great series as Masters, Giant Beat, Signature or Traditional
Brand new hi-hats and rides, new, bigger crashes. We are waiting for some 16″ hi-hats, they are rumored to sound huge!
3. Color Sound 900 Series- back to the past!
Paiste first pioneered color coated cymbals with COLORSOUND 5 in 1984 as a means for artistic expression during the time period when popular music became visual in television music videos. In recent years certain Artist Inspiration models feature color coating – Stewart Copeland‘s Blue Bell Ride, Aquiles Priester‘s Giga Bell Ride and Danny Carey‘s Dry Heavy Ride. Notably, decades of experience have proven the Color Sound finish to be exceedingly tough and durable – the finish will not crack, chip or peel.
4. Nicko McBrain Treasures– something cool for Iron Maiden’s fans!
Since joining Iron Maiden, Nicko McBrain has become one of the most admired and influential drummers in modern times. Recent tours of the British top metal band are breaking all records, including the current The Book of Souls world tour, which features a unique cymbal set crafted for Nicko by Paiste. Inspired by the Mayan theme of the tour stage set, Paiste and Nicko collaborated to create special silk screens for the cymbals. Elements of the artwork include the sun god Tonatiuh. set of Signature Reflector cymbals comes in a massive custom made wooden crate, it’s a sure shot- you must have it.
5. Paiste PST X DJ’s 45– don’t underestimate smaller sizes!
The PST X DJs 45 Set was created in collaboration with the soulful Daru Jones, whose church gospel roots led him to the status of being a sought-after drummer and producer/musical director in the hip-hop, soul and rock scene. Highly praised main stream associations include top acts such as Jack White and Jamie Lidell. The concept was developed in the PST X series, which provides a suitable basis for the type of fast and dry sounds that perfectly fit the world of Hip-hop & Electronica percussion. It is executed with a set consisting of a 12″ Crash, 12″ Ride and 12″ Hats. They are going to be fizzy, short and dirty, with nice crisp from hi-hat and full bell sound from ride cymbal. Ride totally looks like a vinyl plate. Cool thing!
