Highly versatile.

The Alpha Medium Crash has a bright, full, shimmering sound. Medium range, fairly clear mix with a balanced, responsive feel. It's a strong, full and sturdy crash cymbal for universal use in many musical styles.

Alpha Cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Since then, the Alpha Series has been highly successful on an international scale. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well-known for their first-class sound and fair prices. In 2006, Paiste presented a completely revamped Alpha, which advanced these trusted qualities and took Alpha cymbals to a new level.

In recent years, Paiste has invested heavily into the perfection of its high-tech processes, seeking to faithfully reproduce the principles of Swiss hand craftsmanship in its modern production facility in Germany. The updated Alpha cymbals are manufactured using this top-notch technology. They are then enhanced using traditional hand hammering. The combination of hi-tech and traditional methods brings about never before realized quality levels in a highly efficient production environment. Alpha cymbals thus fulfill high demands in quality and function while taking into account the financial realities of today's active drummers.

Paiste designed the updated Alpha series specifically with the global demands of today's music in mind. Global music increasingly combines stylistic and cultural backgrounds into new musical forms, requiring cymbals with wider application range. By applying modern design concepts to the individual models including the Alpha Medium Crash Cymbal, Paiste has met these requirements convincingly. The assortment offers a wide choice of models and sizes, and covers a wide range of music styles. It allows the drummer an optimal variety of sounds in the cymbal set. Despite all of these improvements, the company is offering the new Alpha cymbals at unchanged retail prices.

Great Sound

Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Crash Cymbal:

I replaced my PST 3 14" crash with the 14" Alpha medium crash and it took my sound to the next level. I own the 14" and 16" Alpha medium crash cymbals and the 17" Alpha rock crash cymbal and they are all very musical, shimmering, splashy, and (especially the 17") projecting. I play many different genres and like to have a wide variety of sounds to choose from, and at these prices, I can have professional sounds at amateur prices. I love the Alpha line. If you are in the market for a new 14" crash try this one out I think you'll be amazed at the great sound.

Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Crash Cymbal:

I got the 18" after shopping around for a while. The 18" of this crash has one of the coolest sounds I've heard in a long time. For the record, I'm no noob, I've been playing for 24 years and owned all types of cymbals. These Alphas sound great. I was comparing them side by side with the 2002 in the store and I preferred the Alphas in nearly every case. The hammering on this cymbal looks very sharp as well. Not as cheap as the PST5, which are also really good for the price, but still less than 2002s.
