People already complain that they're expensive...what do you think setting up shop---a manufacturing operation, no less---in SoCal is going to do to their pricing?
Oh, and every cymbal now will be...."unique"."Dear Customers, Fans and Employees Of Paiste Cymbals : We've been bought by Avedis Zildjian Co. USA. Nothing will change we will just lose our unusual color and come down a bit in pitch. Thank you for supporting us all these years. signed your friends in Nottwil".
Z still owns the "enigmatic" prize, by far. They make great cymbals, but let plenty out into the wild that sound more like hitting a brake drum than a cymbal....and be as much of a pain in the ass to match up with other cymbals as Zildjian or Sabians are now.
