Paiste's Description: <<< - >>>
Review: They sound really good, but they sound even better paired with the bottom of my 2002 Sound Edge.
Review written by Lud2002
Review: The are light cymbals, sort of medium-light, about the same as the 2002 Medium Hats. They are smooth sounding, and proof that B8 bronze can be used in professional cymbals. I tried using these in a hard rock band, and they didn't work well, but for music that isn't so heavy and loud, these are great. I probably should've tried the 15 inch size, which I couldn't find used at the time.
