[Musikmesse] Paiste Twenty Custom Collection
Paiste has launched a new addition to its Twenty range, called the Twenty Custom Collection. The cymbals hand-manufactured in CuSn20 bronze with a glossy brilliant finish.
The Twenty Custom Collection won't be available until September 2011, prices TBA.
The Paiste Twenty Custom Collection is a series whose cymbals are designed to create a range of modern musical styles, such as R&B, Indie and Pop to Alternative Rock and Metal.
Here is how Paiste describes its cymbals:
From "soft to heavy playing" the 20" and 22" Full Rides are designed to respond "with agility and sensitivity to any kind of stick attack and always keep their perfect balance of a meaty, deep wash and crisp stick definition," according to Paiste. The voice of the Full Crashes in 16", 18" and 20" is described as "rich, with an ideal mixture of warm, deep mid-tones and brilliant highs. Their dynamic sound spectrum ranges from soft and gentle to piercingly powerful."
The 14" Full Hats are said to "speak with constant clarity." This pair of cymbals is dubbed "responsive and easy to control when played closed or open. The downright fat chick sound penetrates in all situations while being pleasing to the ears." Drummers will also find two effect cymbals in the "snarling" 10" Thin Splash and the "explosive" 18" Thin China.
The ping of the 20" and 22" Metal Rides is said to "brightly and clearly float above the dry and dark fundamental tones."
Staying in the same high volume area as the Metal Rides, the Metal Crashes in 18", 19" and 20" "cut with a warm brilliant attack," Paiste says, for Rock, Punk and Metal drummers.
The 14" and 15" Metal Hats: Closed, the stick attack is "clear and controlled", when opened the hats "rumble and sizzle with immense energy and the chick sound stays precise and rich even in loudest situations," the manufacturer assures.
Finally, the 10" Metal Splash and the "exotic roaring" 18" Metal China the Custom Collection offers two effect cymbals.
