Reliable, great feeling tone is at the core of the Paiste PST7 range.

Designed in collaboration with drumming legend Vinnie Colaiuta, Paiste have also released a new line of Formula 602 cymbals, including 17", 19" and 22" crashes and a 24" ride. Handmade in Switzerland using the famous 602 bronze, the Formula 602 cymbals are an essential for any drummer wanting versatility. The cymbals' richness and shimmering quality makes them ideal to use for live recordings.

Finally, Paiste have collaborated with artists such as Carl Palmer, John JR Robinson , Danny Carey and Andre DEDE Caccarelli to develop an incredible new line of signature cymbals. These signature models are all unique and have been designed along side some of the worlds greatest drummers.
