      A comfortable crash cymbal with a mellow sound character and velvety hiss.

      This Paiste Alpha Thin Crash Cymbal features a brilliant finish and a full, warm, round, and gentle sound. Its medium-wide range boasts a fairly complex mix of frequencies, while retaining a balanced, responsive feel—perfectly suited for all styles.

      Alpha cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well known for their first-class sound and fair prices. The Alpha Series is now available in a Brilliant Finish, once again advancing these trusted qualities.

      The Paiste cymbal's brilliant look is accomplished by skilled craftsmen who hand polish the cymbals to a mirror perfect finish in the final production stage. Prior to that, top-notch hi-tech processes give Alpha cymbals their initial shape and strength. They are further enhanced by traditional hand-hammering.

      Alpha cymbals have become very popular among professional artists, especially in rock and metal. Working with such drummers, Paiste developed new cymbal models to expand the arsenal available for players in these genres.

      Paiste Alpha cymbals have developed a strong following in recent years and are today endorsed by numerous working drummers all over the world, such as Jeremy Spencer of Five Finger Death Punch, Jason Sutter with Chris Cornell, Dave Witte of Municipal Waste, Tommy Portimo of Sonata Arctica, and Steven Spence of Black Tide.

      Features
      • Weight: medium-thin
      • Volume: low to medium-loud
      • Stick sound: pearly
      • Intensity: fairly lively
      • Sustain: medium short

      A very musical alternative choice to all those metallic, harsh-sounding crashes.

        Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Thin Crash Cymbal:

        This cymbal sounds awesome and feels nice and solid even though it is a "thin" crash. I also found that this crash makes for a good rolling crescendo when using padded mallets instead of drumsticks. It sounds pretty bright and has a slightly longer sustain than what I would consider normal considering that the Paiste people say it's "medium short" I would tend to call it just "medium" without the "short". Still an awesome buy for the money.

            Great cymbal, great sound but bad delivery and bad availability. Probably my worse experience with musicians friend web page...probably won't buy anything from then anymore..
