REVIEWS_PAISTE TWENTY CUSTOM COLLECTION v
Hand crafted from ‘Traditional
Bronze’ – or CuSn20, to be precise
– these gleaming new cymbals from
Paiste combine the old and the
new to produce a highly desirable
collection with a particularly modern
sound. Up for review here are a
selection of cymbals from the ‘Full’
and the ‘Metal’ models in the Twenty
Full, Metal, Whack It
So in the two back-breakingly heavy boxes
from Paiste came 20 cymbals. Deep breath:
14” hats, 20” ride, 22” ride, 20” crash, 18”
crash, 18” China and 10” splash in both
denominations. Then there were the extras:
15” Metal hats, 19” Metal crash, and 16”
Full crash. It was like someone turned the
dimmer switch up when that box was opened,
stunningly bright as these cymbals are.
Both the Full and Metal denominations have
a brilliant finish, high-gloss for maximum
reflection and a stunning glimmer on stage.
Both have narrow, shallow lathing, with
the Metal cymbals being even moreso,
and shallow and consistent hammering
iDrum Magazine Issue 9
throughout. The Metal cymbals are
characterised by a much heavier weight, thus
a higher pitch, and also a larger bell which
goes a long way to controlling the wash of
the cymbal. That’s not to say that the Full
range cymbals are thin, by any means. The
22” Metal Ride has a particularly large bell
and prominent ‘ping’ that will cut through
Our Particular Favourites
With so many cymbals to get though, the
turnaround in the studio was pretty fast, but
there were definitely some particular models
that stood out on the day. The 14” Full hats
were impressive, tight and responsive to
varying dynamics as they were. They’re pure
of tone when closed and aggressive with a
sparkle when open – just what you want for
a healthy studio or live sound. I also loved
the length of sustain from the lively 16” and
18” Full crashes, coupled with their ability to
sit well in any mix.
As mentioned, the 22” Metal Ride is capable
of extreme, penetrating volume with its
heavy weight and distinct bell character.
Its clarity will provide a controlled sound
for any genre, and its dryness leaves space
