NAMM 2016: Paiste Reveal New Cymbals
The first new release from Paiste is the Black Big Beat, marking the 45th anniversary of the legendary 2002 series.

Big Beat cymbals are available in 18", 19", 20", 21", 22" and 24" singles, and 15" and 16" pairs. The set represents a modernized, yet timeless interpretation of the celebrated 2002 sound.

Paiste takes the 2002 sound into a new realm, while preserving the legendary heritage. And with a distinctive new hammering pattern, a slightly darkened, semi-matte finish and simplified black logos these cymbals looks as good as they sound.

Another new release from Paiste are the PST7 Crash models. Available in 17" and 19" crashes, and 17" and 19" thin crashes, these cymbals bring premium quality to an affordable market. Reliable, great feeling tone is at the core of the Paiste PST7 range. Ideal for a variety of musical genres, The PST7s are finished by hand and go through rigorous testing to make sure you receive the same great tone they intend.

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.
