Paiste Alpha Metal Crash Cymbal with Brilliant Finish 18″

The character of the Paiste Alpha Metal Crash Cymbal is very powerful, metallic, and icy shimmery with a trashy, dark edge. The cymbal has a wide range and a fairly dirty mix. It’s a very strong and sturdy crash cymbal that can be used in many settings of today’s metal music. Occasional crash/riding patterns are also possible with this type of cymbal.

Alpha cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well known for their first-class sound and fair prices. This Metal Crash Cymbal from the Alpha Series is now available in a Brilliant Finish, once again advancing these trusted qualities.

The brilliant look is accomplished by skilled craftsmen who hand polish the Alpha Metal crash cymbals to a mirror perfect finish in the final production stage. Prior to that, top-notch hi-tech processes give Alpha cymbals their initial shape and strength. They are further enhanced by traditional hand-hammering.

Paiste Alpha cymbals have become very popular among professional artists, especially in rock and metal. Working with such drummers, Paiste developed new cymbals to expand the arsenal available for players in these genres.

Paiste Alpha cymbals have developed a strong following in recent years and are today endorsed by numerous working drummers all over the world, such as Jeremy Spencer of Five Finger Death Punch, Jason Sutter with Chris Cornell, Dave Witte of Municipal Waste, Tommy Portimo of Sonata Arctica, and Steven Spence of Black Tide.
