    What's going on with Paiste?

    I've gone to music stores large, and small. From coast to coast, and many in between. I've yet to go to a store and see anything besides a few 2002's, 900''s, or a few Signature Full crashes. The ones I see on display are often defective as well. I don't buy cymbals I don't play first. I've...

    Paiste Reflector Full Crash vs. Everything else

    I have a 16" Paiste Reflector Full (not Heavy) crash which is easily my favorite cymbal I own. My collection is made up of Sabian, Zildjian and Paiste. Now Paiste has stopped making this line, though they continue to make the Reflector Heavy Full crash. Has anyone else used these cymbals? Is...

    ID This cymbal?

    I'd have to drive about an 2 hours to pick this up. It's a 16 inch from the 60's for under $100 bucks. I see the black label, and looks to be a vintage Giant Beat? Am I correct? If not, what else could it be?? The seller doesn't know I am color blind. It may be red?

    Black/green spots on Paiste 2002 ride and paiste Alpha hihats/crash

    Hi all, As you can tel from the title, my cymbals have developed this blackish colored layer on them, ever since i (stupidly) cleaned them with a generic metal polish. The 2002 ride also has got some green spots on it.. Can this be cleaned/fixed? Will paiste cymbal cleaner work? Are there...

    Just landed in LA. Suggestions?

    I've been here quite a few times, but never checked out any music stores. Any suggestions for a good selection on cymbals (looking Paiste) I'm curious to see the difference, if any between NY, and LA.

    I have two Paiste Traditional Thin Splashes with etched logo for possible sale or trade. They are in excellent condition. The 9" has quite a bit of light scuffing on the inside of the bell, I'm guessing the previous owner didn't have it mounted properly, but I don't see any physical damage...

    Introduction.

    Hey all. I'm still a newb here, so I'll give a quick intro, before I hit my topic. I've been playing for 40× years (on, and off) I'm from NY, studied privately, and in college. I can read charts, know my rudiments, and all that. I've played in cover bands, and some good tributes. I play a few...

    1976 2002 20 inch

    I have a chance to pick up a 1976 20 inch 2002 crash today. It's in good condition. The lettering is still on it, no flea bites, but has a mild keyhole. If you are a Paiste fan, like I am, theoretically, would you pick it up for a good price? What would you pay. Pic coming.

Tried to set up somewhat equivalent setups between my existing Paiste and the new Mehmet. 15" hats for both, 2x18" crashes for both, a 19" crash in Ist setup vs 20" crash in paiste, and similar weight rides (21" in paiste vs...

    Strange Paiste 2002 Hats...

    Thanks in advance for any insight anyone may have to offer. I recently picked up a set of vintage Paiste 2002 hi-hats and they are vastly different from any I have seen. They are not Sound-Edge and the bottom hat is drilled with 4 holes in a Zildjian Quick Beat-esque fashion. While they sound...

    In Praise of . . .

    Steve DiStanislao. I listened to David Gilmour's Live at Pompeii this weekend, and was really impressed by the musicality of the drummer, so I had to look him up. (I also was certain he was playing Paistes, and wanted to confirm what my ears were telling me.) Mr. DiStanislao was not well...
