Don't buy this cymbal if you're expecting a splash, because though it can do many things, splashing is not one of them.Being a medium weight cymbal, it just doesn't open up or explode like a splash should. It's not particular loud either, if volume is something you need.This is definitely an effects cymbal, the bell has a great almost cowbell like sound, and the crash sounds like an accent cymbal. It also has a very cool light ride sound.The cymbal is a great price, and is quite versatile. It's not a bad cymbal, it's just mislabeled.

Only use would be as a starter cymbal. Nothing else..

I don't normally write negative reviews but unfortunately this product warrants one. This is STRICTLY a beginner's cymbal. Do not expect anything else. Spend a little more money and buy a better quality splash. This is not a knock on Paiste at all. I love the brand. In fact, my main crashes I still use are 35 years old!

      Comments about Paiste PST 3 Splash:

      a fairly decent cymbal, this is made of the exact type of brass as the 101's so it goes great with those, (and all my paistes for that matter), sounds very good after you give it a few really hard whacks, (it sounds a bit odd right out of the box), for the price, you should take it.

      Comments about Paiste PST 3 Splash:

      This cymbal has a punchy, colorful sound to it, but it doesn't quite open up all the way, as with all of the PST3s. Since it is a medium weight cymbal, I can thrash the heck out of it and not worry about the it breaking. Also, the volume isn't quite as loud as I would like it to be.

      Comments about Paiste PST 3 Splash:

      I am not impressed with cymbals often... But this is defiantly my favorite cymbal- I don't use a china, I use the 10" version of this cymbal.It has a quick decay and sounds like a damn steamroller when played with a thrash or heavy interlude, it defiantly turns heads.It is cheap and overly epic. Get it; It is non-comparable.

      Terrible Cymbal- Can't Even Hear It!

      Comments about Paiste PST 3 Splash:

      Okay drummers listen up. This Paiste PST-3 splash cymbal may look appealing because of its name and price (it fooled me) but believe me its not. I got the thing and looked nice and sounded okay but when I played with music, I couldn't even hear it. I had to wack the thing for it to make the noise. After a week of dissapoint I traded it in and luckily got the value of what I paid for it. I'd look around before even thinking on buying this cymbal.

      Wow!! This thing is amazing! It has a quick decay (depending on how tight), and the autentic "splash" sound its almost compairable to my 9" K custom hybrid splash.....Well done for the price.

      A splash that has a distinctive sound that can cut through noise, has a solid response, and durable. It may ring a little depending on how tight you mount it. Great quality for the price!

      ok, so i got this splash like 1 or 2 years ago and i have rotated between my 10" zht and this 10" PST3 ever since. It has a very bright sound, cuts through music nicely.
