OVERVIEW

A modest price for a versatile crash!

The Alpha Thin Crash cymbal has a medium bright, full, warm sound. Wide range, fairly complex mix. Balanced, responsive feel. A versatile, comfortable crash cymbal with an explosive sound character and hissing shimmer. Perfectly suited for all styles in moderate 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 Thin 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.

Comments about Paiste Alpha Thin Crash Cymbal:

I got this cymbal at my local music shop a couple weeks back, and it sounds great. its ideal for breakdowns, if you dont want to use a big crash or china, the bright sound gives me that really quick attack. if you like bright and loud cymbals, buy this one, you wont be sorry.

Excellent Crash

By Anonymous

Comments about Paiste Alpha Thin Crash Cymbal:

This is a very high quality crash for the price. I recieved 14 inch thin crash with a mail in rebate for one of my Paiste 2002 crashes. I have two other 2002 series crashes and the alpha holds up very well. It still has the same quality of sound as some of the higher priced Paiste's. I would definitely recommend the alpha series for a beginner on a budget since you can get the same quality for half the price.

Love the Sound

By Ereyes

from Michigan

Comments about Paiste Alpha Thin Crash Cymbal:

I currently own The Thin 16" Crash and I just love the sound. I usually play it in my basement and the Medium weight Aplphas (of which I have two)are to loud and create to many overtones. I'm swaping out my 18" med for an 18" thin.

Comments about Paiste Alpha Thin Crash Cymbal:

I use to think Zildjian was the way to go for crashes, boy was I wrong! Alpha is greek for number 1, and it suits it cus this is the number 1 crash you can get, I got this bad boy at a 14 inch, the sound is fast, it cuts through our vocals and guitars, and sounds beatifull on breakdowns and fills. GET IT!
