PSTX – Unlimited Noise for Limited Budgets

Paiste introduces a complete collection of extremely affordable effect cymbals. The core of the PSTX is made up of the Swiss models, cymbals that achieve a noisy, dirty, trashy sound quality by the use of specific layouts and varied sizes for the holes. Their silky surface distinguishes the cymbals visually. The aluminum Pure Bells stand out due to their distinct character and concept.


Dave Lombardo’s Inspiration - «The Reign»

This year Paiste celebrates the 35th anniversary of the RUDE series that defines the sound of punk and metal until today. To commemorate the anniversary Paiste collaborated with Dave Lombardo to create the 22" RUDE Power Ride «The Reign». It’s based on the original cymbal which can be heard on «Reign In Blood».


Stewart Copeland’s Inspiration - «The Rhythmatist»

Stewart Copeland teamed up with Paiste Sound Development to design a dynamic hi-hat small enough for fine articulation, yet crisp enough to cut through at all volume levels. The result is the 12" Signature Combo Crisp Hi-Hat «The Rhythmatist».


From Aggressive to Captivating

Paiste’s 2002 series made rock history … and keeps on going. The 10" 2002 Mega Bell adds a piercing, heavy bell sound with tremendous sustain to rock drummers’ setups, which is impossible to ignore even in loud situations.


The Logical Extension of a Classic

The new 22" Formula 602 Medium Ride extends the assortment of Formula 602 «Classic Sounds» to 13 models. It shines through its perfect balance of a smooth, sparkling ping and a full, rich wash as well as a clear, yet unobtrusive bell sound.
