  • PAPER THIN cymbals are of course very thin. They rustle softly when played softly and and have a dark, deep sound. When hit very hard they give a sharp splash effect. A very interesting sound for special effects. (2)
  • Warm, silvery, airy with a mystical touch. Medium wide range, fairly complex mix. Very soft, papery feel. Very responsive. A graceful crash cymbal for delicate, sensitive playing with light sticks, brushes, rods and hands. Well suited for mallet rolls.
    Weight extra thin Volume soft to medium loud Stick Sound washy Intensity fairly lively Sustain medium (3)


  • Smooth, warm, velvety, shimmery, transparent. A buttery feel, very fast and responsive attack, paired with a light, shimmering decay. Well suited for acoustic instrumental music and suspended cymbal use. Superb crash cymbal for quieter studio recordings.
