Paiste honors Joey’s passion for eccentric and unique cymbal designs with a special edition in its Alpha series, which are both a visually and sonically close fit to Joey’s current Slipknot touring set.
As the name reveals, Black Alphas contain Paiste’s innovative black «ColorSound» coating. Each cymbal features 9 silver placed Tribal-S logos. Unique and deep hammer marks, exclusive to Black Alpha Hyper cymbals, are also visually apparent on this completely new developed line.
Made of Paiste’s 2002 Bronze (CuSn8), the bright sounding and rather heavy Black Alphas cut through the loudest Metal music. The 14" Hyper Hats have an articulate stick and chick sound yet when they’re played slightly opened, these aggressive barking hats pierce smoothly through amplified guitars. In all musical styles where either super fast blast beats or extremely powerful bass drum patterns are common, the dense ping and potent bell on the 20" Hyper Ride always dominates.Includes:
