The four machine-made cymbals of the Paiste 201 set are made of B8 bronze, a material composed of 92% copper and 8% tin. The cymbals are of first-class workmanship, feature a versatile sound, and have a moderate weight - so they make a convincing case with their all-round qualities. In addition, the fanned hammer marks create an appealing look. All of these features make this cymbal set an absolute top model for beginners. The set includes a 14" hi-hat, a 16" crash, and a 20" ride - the classic basic cymbal combination that can be used for any style.
Bright and cutting
The Paiste 201 cymbals have a rather bright character that tends towards Rock. A good, fast response, in connection with a proper weight distribution without tonal losses when being played harder, results in a high-quality, cutting sound that is in no way intrusive or exaggerated. The 20" ride in this set particularly stands out: A comfortable bell size, which also compensates for greater hitting inaccuracies, makes it easy to practise, particularly for beginners. In addition, it also has crash qualities that are by no means a matter of course in this price segment.
Paiste quality for a budget-friendly price
