I've been drumming for a few years now, on sets belonging to others/my church, and I finally was able to get my own real drums and cymbals. I didn't have a wide range of options; my budget was short of great, so I thought a pack would be more economical.

Indeed this universal pack is economical, however," the 16"" crash included is really awful", so in essence, you're pretty much paying for hi-hats and a ride.

The hi-hats sound good enough," however they are qute ""clangy"". This is the only word I can think of to describe it. Instead of a good ""SSS"" sound"," you get more of a ""HAAAAH"" thing going on. (the sound you make to imitate a stadium crowd). But they do the job.

The ride is the best part of this set. The body has a pretty good sound", as does the bell to a lesser extent, but the crash creates an annoyingly low overtone, so it's not good for crashing, but good for riding.

So if you really want this set, GET A BETTER CRASH. Other wise, it's good. But like how everything that's economical says....Wait until you can afford something better. Really. You'll have to upgrade certainly at some point.

Forget ZBTs, ZXTs and B8s!

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Universal Cymbal Set 14/16/20:

They cost more than my drumset I bought on sale! But they are absolutely worth it. Paiste has done what other big names have missed: Make a budget cymbal pack that sounds like it's worth the money you spent on it.The hihat is decently defined and has a decent amount of washy crash when played loose. The crash sounds very very nice, very much like an intermediate bright crash (almost as good as an AAX or somewhat close to an A Custom). The ride is... meh. I mean, it performs the job decently enough, but the bell isn't very pronounced, and the wash takes too much away from the ping of your stick.Overall, buy these. You won't be replacing them with anything less than top of the line cymbals, like me!

    New Paiste Cymbal Set

    By RenoRebel

    from Reno

    Comments about Paiste PST 5 Universal Cymbal Set 14/16/20:

    Now I'm no expert, just picked up drums this year, but I think theses cymbals sound pretty good. Ride is great, bell's a little smaller than my friends Zil I'm used to playing on but the overall sound is great. Crash is cool, doesn't knock me out but that's it's only flaw. Hats, on the other hand, let me down. The closed sound is ok, maybe a little bland, but open they are terrible. It takes me out of my zone to suddenly hear that crashing noise from my left. I plan on replacing them with Sabian AAX's.

    Great Value For The Money.. Nice Set

    Comments about Paiste PST 5 Universal Cymbal Set 14/16/20:

    I am a active musician from Pa, i been playin drums for 5 yrs now and just got these cymbals not too long ago.. i must say the crash is brilliant, very responsive, the hi hats are nice for the value they have a nice trashy sound to them if there open, if there closed they create a light powerful tone, if you use them for stage or show your gonna need a good mic. as far as the ride, i couldnt care for it has too much of a "pingy" noise to it and dies very quick i suggest a higher up paiste ride such as the alphas or rudes this ride is not what you want if you are in to metal/ hard rock overall it is a great cymbal set for the price

    slightly dissapointing

    Comments about Paiste PST 5 Universal Cymbal Set 14/16/20:

    I tried this cymbals out on my set along with the pst 10" splash, and 18" china, and i have to say, the splash is the only cymbal I'm entirely pleased with. The hi hats are a little too heavy and lack sustain when played open. The ride has an overtone that prevents definition when playing a high tempoed song. The crash is pretty good, but like the others, is a little heavy. Personally, i would go for sabian B8's, same price, better quality.

    I have had the whole PST5 line and they take everything I throw at them and still look brand new. The price is just right and I'm surprized the quality for that price. I would pay triple without even thinking about it. These are a must have!!!!!

    PST 5 Universal Set

    Comments about Paiste PST 5 Universal Cymbal Set 14/16/20:

    These Paiste cymbals are very good. The hi hats have a very controlled sound when closed. The ride cymbal has a nice pitch with a fairly short decay. I chose these cymbals over the Zildjian ZHTs because of the ride sound. I would recommend this cymbals.

    Comments about Paiste PST 5 Universal Cymbal Set 14/16/20:

    I love the crash it is bright and dry. The hats are great for the "tst" sound and the ride is a little too washy and the bell is weak but other than that it is a great ride. I'm more of a paiste guy but in this price range you can get yourself some better sounding Sabian B8pros.
