Cymbal Buying Guide at Cascio Interstate Music

New from NAMM 2015, the Paiste 1255214 PSTX 14" Swiss Thin Crash is part of the new PSTX collection, complete with extremely affordable effect cymbals.  This crash produces exotic, warm, deep sounds.

The core of the PSTX is made up of the Swiss models, cymbals that achieve a noisy, dirty, trashy sound quality by the use of specific layouts and varied sizes for the holes. Their silky surface distinguishes the cymbals visually. The aluminum Pure Bells stand out due to their distinct character and concept.

PSTX are made from 2002 bronze, brass and aluminum in Switzerland using modern, innovative methods.

fast, a bit trashy...this has worked into my rig as an excellent choice for my smaller set ups. With a larger rig, I can use as many cymbals as I'm feeling. But when I get into my smaller 'Ringo' setups, I use only the bare necessities of cymbals. As a crash/trash, this cymbal comes off fast, and immediate. I actually felt it helped the downbeats and was in and out. Not sure of the longevity, as it's a pretty fragile feeling cymbal. Having fun with it.
