New from NAMM 2015, the Paiste 1255318 PSTX 18" Swiss Medium Crash is part of the new PSTX collection, complete with extremely affordable effect cymbals.
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.
