Since Nicko McBrain joined the British top metal band Iron Maiden almost 30 years ago, he has been respected worldwide as one of most celebrated and influential rock drummers. His long standing loyalty and dedication moved Paiste to honor Nicko with a special “Boomer” edition of the successful Alpha series, which will satisfy not only die-hard Nicko fans. Corresponding to Nicko’s professional touring set, Alpha Boomer Cymbals are silk screened in blue. The Paiste logo in Maiden-font combined with the PowerSlave Eddie artwork bring the Boomer cymbals’ appearance to perfection.
Energetic, full, clear, bright, strong. Fairly wide range, fairly clean mix. Pronounced, round, glassy ping over a balanced and controllable wash. Clear, full, big bell sound, fairly integrated, and well balanced within the overall cymbal sound. Perfectly suited for forceful playing in aggressive music styles, where wide dynamics are required.
