I appreciate the sound should matters the most, but I'm still interested in how cymbal companies identify their respective products and categorize things.It's not been announced yet but yes, they're renaming some models and have some new logo designs. I'm pretty excited to see their new stuff; the last few years they haven't disappointed (unlike another big cymbal company...).
I've been curious if Paiste had been trying to get rid of the Signature line. It seemed quite a few models had been discontinued, and most of their energy seemed to be on their B20 offerings.Paiste is releasing a bunch of Signatures of the past for the 30th anniversary. Looking like Mellow, Crystal, Power, crashes. Some hats and rides TBD.
Excellent. I can't see it on the site yet but that may be because its not been officially released just yet. Either way, I cannot wait to get one on my kit.From what little I gathered, it's a blue finish instead of the dark grey finish of the limited edition. I could be incorrect in that it's now in the Artist Pallete catalog but that's what it looked like to me. Plus, that shell and sound profile are different enough from what Tama currently offers, that they will sell a snare or two, and not just to Deftones fans.
It's a sectioned out ply so it looks like stave construction.. but on a ply... to relieve tension within the shell. Sonor was doing that since the 60's or 70's..up until Designer.. although the most recent stuff I believe they abandoned it.What kind of DW marketing mumbo jumbo is this now?
There’s a new 22 extra thin masters on their site as wellPaiste is releasing a bunch of Signatures of the past for the 30th anniversary. Looking like Mellow, Crystal, Power, crashes. Some hats and rides TBD.
Cool on the Sabian re-branding. I have often wondered why the HHX costs more than AAX - seems like this should be one line of modern machine made cymbals with bright and dark models.
