I own a Zildjian ZXT 10" splash and I'm not impressed with it's sound at all. I read some reviews on this Paiste and figured I'd try it out (10"). In my opinion it sounds WAY better than the ZXT and was a good bit cheaper as well. If you don't want to spend a lot on a splash then I'd recommend this one for sure.

I have played every splash in guitar center and some of the local shops here in Utah. I bought the 10" based on other reviews thinking it would be worth the money. I highly recommend you buy the 8". The 8" has a lot better sound, it seems the bigger the less actual "splash" you get with these. It's not that crisp and it just sounds cheap. I know the smaller one would be better because it is brighter! I guess if you want a 10" look like 20-50 bucks more, it'll be worth it!

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

I bought the 10 inch...I gotta tell you...These things are AWESOME!!! They are bright sounding,they have that classic splash sound (unlike some of the better brands such as Zildjian), and out of all the good brands, these are the cheapest by far...And from what I've heard they are the one of the best! Buy it!!!! (10 inch)

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

The pst5 and pst3 cymbals are the best cymbals for drummers on a budget or are just beginning.The cymbals hold up to there name and prove to be the best in there price range.There unmatched against zildjians and sabians line of low budget cymbals.The sound is surprisingly awesome for the price,dont be fooled.If your a drummer wanting to pick up some cymbals that can compete with the best at this price,you've found them.The chinas and rides are amazing,check them out to,they can resist to any amount brutality one can put on a cymbal.For the price,you cant go wrong.The sound,tone,quality,and the consistancy paiste provides is unmatched by any in this price range.If you want to hear them,just head over to www.Paiste.com,check out the sound samples,you'll be amazingly surprised at what youll get.

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

I have owned many pst5 cymbals for probably a year and a half, and overall I am very satisfied. Im a bassist first, before I'm a drummer, so I dont play my set all that hard, or often. I may jam on it a couple times a week. After inspecting all my cymbals, I noticed that the splash had the beginnings of almost a dozen small cracks around the hole where u put the cymbal on the stand. I also found a crack in the bell that ran about 1.5" long. All I've ever used in my time being a drummer have been paiste cymbals, and I was somewhat disappointed in this cymbal. I expected more durability, even of paistes more value priced selection of cymbals, I guess you always get what you pay for.

Longer Sustain

By Impliable(Imm-Plee-Ahh-Blay)

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

No doubt about it, this is an excellent value for the quality of sound. I own 8, 12, 14 inch and the PST5 is a wonderful line. That being said, I think the 8" needs to be a tad thinner. The attack is relatively dull and the decay is too quick. Keep in mind however, this my opinion. I DO love the rest!!

Pretty good

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

Not quite as bright as you may expect, but for the price it certainly adds some spice to your set. I have the 8 inch, and to be honest it sounds more like a mini-china. Very responsive, it snaps back the instant you hit it. Nice alternative to choking your crashes, or if your playing live its good to count off with. And since I mentioned that it sounds like more of a mini-china, it goes very well if you hit the snare and snap the splash at the same time. Great buy for us less fortunate players, but I'd suggest the PST 3 if your looking for a brighter sounding splash within the same friendly price range.

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

I have had this cymbal for over 6 months now and I love it. I like the sound more than my friend's Zildjian ZBT splash and way more than any other splash in this price range. It has a nice, bright, crisp sound for the money. If your looking for an entry level splash, buy this one!

Really awesome Splash!

By PaisteCymbalsRULE

from Lakeville, MA

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

I've used about 4 other Splash Cymbals, and they didn't sound as good as this one! But of course those weren't Paiste's. They were Zildjian and Sabian both of those brands are pretty good but Paiste is the best! It's great for a quick accent in a solo or a breakdown. I really reccomend this to beginners. It's a great price and very worth every cent!

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

I bought this just as an add-on to my cymbal arsenal, but man I was blown away. I have Sabian AAX series crashes, and this blends perfect with them. I'm tempted to buy some PST5 crashes as well. Great cymbal

Awesome Affordable Cymbal

By Blake Roche

from Whitmire, SC

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

I'd been wanting to buy some more cymbals to my kit for awhile, and I found the perfect set with the PST 5s. This cymbal is exactly what I wanted from a splash, a super-bright accent to what I'm playing. The decay is a tiny bit long and a little weird-sounding, but it sounds great with headphones. Great cymbal, great price. I'll probably buy more Paiste in the future.

PST 5 10

By Mojam

from Central Illinois

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

I now have three 10" splashes,this one being the highest in pitch.The other two are Paiste 3000 and Sabian HH.The PST 5 gives 'em both a run for their $ as far as sound quality.And the price,you can't beat it.I will be buying more PST 5's for myself and my sons. P.S. The thin crashes sound a lot like my Sound Formula's.

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

I have a 10" and it seems you have to hit it sort of hard to get a nice crisp sound. But the crisp sound is a VERY NICE SPLASH SOUND. The non crisp suond is good, but i perfer the crip sound. The price is amazing. Bottom line-if you are a intermediate or beginer, I would get this.

Not for hard hitters

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Splash:

I got this cymbal at christmas time so about 6 months ago. Its a great splash, for begginners and pros. I dont think its great for hard hitters though. I tend to hit fairly hard so i need a thicker cymbal. This cymbal is fairly thin and mine is really bent and out of its natural shape. This is the 10 inch. I would still buy it because its a great splash for the money.
