Skelt...I'm a huge Paiste fan, collector, and don't think any other cymbal co makes anything comparable.
Nice. It still appears on the Paiste web site as of now in 20, 22 and 24:In my continuing effort to build a Paiste collection I bought a used 22 Masters Thin, which is fantastic and ridiculously light at 2113g. Who thought they’d make a cymbal like this ?
It also looks like it discontinued.
Man, I'm sorry. I looked yesterday and didn't see it. Weird. Just in a rush I suppose. They really are fantastic. Limited appeal for the typical Paiste user I'm sure.Nice. It still appears on the Paiste web site as of now in 20, 22 and 24:

so I don't think we need to remove it from the wiki just yet.
For context, another discontinued model in this diameter and weight range (and I suspect sonic profile) would be the Traditionals Extra Light Ride. A relatively uncommon model so we don't have much info in the wiki yet.
I,like most, miss my cymbalholics.com fix. so here is a small attempt to connect to some of the stuff we had over there. so tell me what you got most recently cymbal wise....
I slipped up on a nice jewel recently. I bought a 60's avedis 24". seller mentioned that it was around 3400 grams. a little heavier than my dream cymbal but still thought I would give a try. I had just bought a new digital scale and had it ready for the arrival of the 24. when it arrived, I could tell right away it was thinner than that because ive had one 2800 and 3200. I was pleasantly pleased when it weighed in at 2976 grams. its a jewel. has a ton of different sounds as a ride cymbal. it crashes well and the bell is full and musical. I so wish that it had rivets though. I have really come to enjoy them on cymbals over they years...
has some beautiful dark green patina right at the bottom. I picture some old jazz cat clasping it there while laying down some nice patterns...
so....what did ya get lately???

I ran into a deal I couldn't pass up today, and one of them is a 17 Mellow. I haven't played it on a kit yet, but I'm not sure I liked what I heard? I won't know until I play it, but it is definitely Mellow.
I also got a 20 inch Sig China Thin. It sounds great, makes a statement, and has a great tone. Again, I'll have to throw it up there.
Finally a 16 inch Sig full. No comment necessary.
What do you think of the Mellow so far?
I use 2 crashes, 2 splashes, and a China at home. I may go with 3 crashes the next few weeks, and check it the mellowness View attachment 405601 View attachment 405600 View attachment 405599
Yeah, I'm digging it far more than I thought I would. I have a 19 DE crash, and by itself doesn't mix well with 2002's, and Full Sigs. The DE mix bette with the GB's to my ear.Toast Tee,
I haven’t had the Mellow Crash on the stand for long, but impressions are good so far! As mentioned previously, it was purchased to incorporate into a set of 2002 Big Beats. Compared to a Dark Energy crash in the same size, I find the Mellow to actually be a little darker, with a cleaner midrange and more of that Paiste shimmer in the wash- beautiful! My only concern was whether it would hold-up volume wise with the 2002s. However, I’m not really a “basher”, so everything seems just fine. Hope you’re enjoying your Mellow Crash as well!
I have my 15" top paired with one of the new 900 Heavy bottoms. Sounds great! I hear that the 2002 Sound Edge bottom works as well.I'm still deciding if I like the hats. They are so different from my other pairs. If I can find a heavier bottom for cheap I might try that out.
