Cymbal Buying Guide at Cascio Interstate Music
Alpha cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well known for their first-class sound and fair prices. For 2010, Paiste presents the Alpha Series in a new Brilliant Finish, and once again advances these trusted qualities.

The new brilliant look is accomplished by skilled craftsmen who hand polish the cymbals to a mirror perfect finish in the final production stage. Prior to that, top-notch hi-tech processes give Alpha cymbals their initial shape and strength. They are also further enhanced by traditional hand hammering.

  • The new A Custom Rezo Hi Hats possess a new bell design that produces extra volume when needed with its medium top and medium-heavy bottom weight while still producing the warm blend of overtones that is expected from the acclaimed A Custom line of cymbals. Strategically placed cutouts on the outer edge of the bottom cymbal help to produce a warm but precise "chic" effect with these new pairings.
