OVERVIEW

Very forceful, rich hi-hat for wide application in many musical genres.

The 14" Alpha Rock Hi-Hat Cymbals have a very bright, full, warm and clear sound. Wide range, very clear mix. Heavy, giving feel. Explosive, clear and open sound with a meaty and cutting chick. Very forceful, rich hi-hat for wide application in many musical genres.

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 hi-hat 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 Rock Hi-Hat 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.

Musical And Agressive

Comments about Paiste Alpha Rock 14" Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

I purchased the PST 5 Rock hats to upgrade from the Pulse Pro hats that can with my set and I really liked them (compared to the Pulse Pro ones), but I wanted to see what an inexpensive professional hat sounded like compared to them (you can listen online at Paiste.com but it's not the same as hearing them right in front of you with the acoustics of wherever you play). These Alpha Rock Hats simply are amazing. I immediately removed my PST 5's from the stand (put them onto an X Hat, cause they still sounded 100% better than the Pulse Pros) and mounted the Alphas. They have a great CHICK when you close them, they sizzle when you open them part way, and the sound they make closed is penetrating. If you are an amateur with amateur sound and want to get professional sound or you are looking for a good, inexpensive replacement hat, the Alphas are for you. Since most drummers spend 80%-90% of their time hitting the hats and the snare, those components should sound good and if you are trying to achieve a good amount of musical hat playing, these will raise your game. I simply love them (and the entire Alpha line)

Sweet Hat

Comments about Paiste Alpha Rock 14" Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

I'd been playing a low-budget Paiste 201 hat and griping on the non-musical sound. This is a REAL hi-hat! Everything sounds solid, from tightly closed to wide open hitting, to in-between. My band plays everything from hard rock to country, and this hat has a nice, defined, versatile sound. I've simply had a real good time playing drums since I bought this set. I dunno, they just ring and catch eveyone's attention.

not to bad

Comments about Paiste Alpha Rock 14" Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

When I got these hats I was honestly expecting worse but all in all not a bad set of hats. They deffinatly sound better closed, when you play them open they don't have that nice sizzle you get with more expensive high hats. If you don't have money like me and you need some new high hats check these out.
