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..

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!

Terrible Cymbal- Can't Even Hear It!

By The One Ways -DRUMMER

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.

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.

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.

      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!

      Comments about Paiste PST 3 Splash:

      I have the paiste (8in) pst 5 and (10in) pst 3. They both speak for them selves you know? I personaly like the pst 5 better, the pst 3 does have alot of color to it too, the washy sound it gives is killer man.If you want to and color to your kit, get both of them, because ther affordable and just sound awesome. I love them and I know you will.

      The best splash for the money

      Comments about Paiste PST 3 Splash:

      I recived this splash a few days ago and it is one of the best cymbals for the price. Yeah there are better ones but they cost a lot more. If your a drummer on a tight budget, like me, this cymbal will get the job done at a low cost. Very bright sounding, does not ring too long, and the bell sounds awsome. For any level drummer this is a great cymbal. Buy it.

      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.

      Great splash for $30. Good price and good cymbal. Good sound, real splashy. If you're looking for a splash, I'd reccommend this one. It's a great deal and you won't be dissapionted.

      Comments about Paiste PST 3 Splash:

      I played some of these cymbals on a drumset that I put together for a friend of mines son. These are definitely better than the 302Paiste's. At the time, I didn't realize that these were paistes, because they were unmarked.Next thing I see is these cymbals marked paiste on the web.They have a fairly bright sound,not real loud, but I was impressed because they are the best brass cymbals I've heard up to this point. Very good beginner or practice set cymbals! Might sound good on lower volume recordings.

      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.

      Comments about Paiste PST 3 Splash:

      Well, I'm a beginning drummer, so I don't know much about this kind of thing. It's a nice splash for the price, though my only complaint is that it rings a bit, but not so much as the planet z zildian crash I have, but I got the crash for free, so whatever. It's overall a nice cymbal, especially for the price.

      Comments about Paiste PST 3 Splash:

      I got 2 for christmas hoping to get a good splash to replace my other cracked ones. To me it doesn't sound to much of a splash and it sounds terrible on my bands recordings. One cracked in about 2 months and i rarely ever used it because i didn't like the sound. I haven't bothered to use the other one. Go for the sabian b8 splash, sounds like a good splash for the money.

      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.
