  • 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)


  • 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.
    Weight extra thin Volume very soft to medium Stick Sound silky, washy Intensity lively Sustain short Bell Character integrated (1)
