Paiste comes crashing through!
Dr Brian 23.05.2015
I recently bought the Paiste 2002 classic 18" crash cymbal after shopping around. I needed something that was durable, not too bright but could cut through a band or orchestra. Given that I required a crash cymbal that was versatile enough for a variety of environments I wanted to expand my horizons when it came to choice. Having listened and auditioned many cymbals on Thomann's excellent web site I decided to try Paiste, after all, if they're good enough for Jeff Porcaro, Right!!!!
I was not disappointed. The first outing for my new 18" crash was on a performance of Hairspray the musical in a 1,200 seat theatre. The feel from the pit was so good. When I needed a big sound with sustain that punctuated without overpowering the vocals, it was there. The rich tone it has, sounded so right within the band giving an extra layer to the overall balance. The feedback from the sound engineer and other musicians who were front of house was very positive. The next setting was with an ABBA tribute show, smaller venue and working with a 4 piece band, vocals and tracks. This work for me is all about creating the sonic feel of the original recordings so i'm quite particular with my choice of cymbals and drums. Again, I was so impressed with Paiste - attack and sustain were just enough and the overall timbre blended seamlessly with the music. My next test for the '2002 Classic' will be with Broadway and West End star Rachel Tucker in July. Again, a different ensemble line up and performance demands will be required. However, I am confident the Paiste 2002 Classic 18" Crash cymbal will come 'Crashing Through' for me. Watch This Space!!!!

Un bon son, un peu vintage
Günther Crash 23.05.2011
Je recherchais une cymbale à son plutôt grave, pas très explosive, mais bien puissante, et j'ai découvert la gamme 2002 de Paiste. Déjà, c'est une des gammes les plus variés, tout le monde peu y trouver son bonheur. Après un essai en magasin, le son me rappelait beaucoup les grosse cymbale de Lars Ulrich pendant les 80's.

J'ai pris en Classic, pas trop d'artifice ou de modification, standard, et j'ai découvert un son grave, puissant, avec une bonne projection, un sustain ni trop long, ni trop court, que l'on peut aisément stopper à la main, c'est aussi une bonne cymbale pour cogneur, elle va bien dans le style Rock même Métal, un bon coup de crash pour réveiller le public.

Conclusion : En plus de pouvoir être compléter avec de nombreuses cymbales de la même gamme, la 18" Classic Crash est une bonne cymbale bien vintage je trouve, mais je la déconseille à ceux qui recherche une forte explosion, ou alors un sustain très court.

DAS Crash
Dominik2027 01.07.2018
Neben dem 18"-Modell spiele ich auch das 20". Beide harmonieren hervorragend miteinander. Das 18" ist jedoch, wenn auch mit kleinem Vorsprung, mein Favorit. Das Verhältnis aus Körper, Attack und Sustain ist für mich perfekt - und als Sahnehäubchen oben drauf gibt es den berühmten "Paiste-Schimmer". Für mich der definitive Crashsound.

Die Verarbeitungsqualität ist, typisch Paiste, hervorragend.
