OVERVIEW

Very versatile hi-hat for multi-purpose use.

The Alpha Medium Hi-Hats have a clear, full, meaty sound. Fairly wide range, clean mix. Sharp, and precise, open sound with a tight chick sound. Very versatile hi-hat for multi-purpose use.

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 Hi-Hat, 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.

Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

I have played drums for over 20 years and by far Paiste Alpha line is my first choice. They provide excellent pro sound at a blue-collar price. Yes people will say signatures and twenty series are better BUT not two times better as the price difference would have you think. If you want top quality for an excellent value then this line is for you. If you are looking for "bragging rights" then pay the $400+ for signatures...

      Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

      I have to say, Paiste makes some great cymbals! I bought the 14" medium hi hats thinking they were going to be "ok" since they were so cheap. I was very wrong! These sound just as good as the signature series, to me at least. They are very clean and have that "chick" sound that everyone loves! Buy these hats! Trust me!

      Comments about Paiste Alpha Medium Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

      These great cymbals are very exellent for the price. i own the medium 14", and also a 16" medium crash along with an 18". those three impiticular are just truly meant for each other. but for the highhats, they have a nice crisp sound very sharp on recordings. the only thing that i think they lack is that really funky open sound, but if you arent playing funk they are great.
