Mellow, yet cutting and powerful. Fairly wide range, slightly complex mix. A distinctive silvery breath over a big, soft layered wash. Very responsive and giving feel. A classic thin crash, perfectly suited for today's new beat/pop/rock music.

Paiste 18 inch Giant Beat Crash/Ride Cymbal

Mellow, yet cutting and powerful. Fairly wide range, slightly complex mix. A distinctive silvery breath over a big, soft layered wash. Very responsive and giving feel. A classic thin crash, perfectly suited for today's new beat/pop/rock music.

In the late 50’s Paiste experimented with the CuSn8 bronze alloy and pioneered CuSn8 cymbals in 1963. In the 60’s the electrified sound generated was groundbreaking and popular music, simply stated, became loud and irreverent.

CuSn8 bronze that Paiste worked on turned out to be perfect for the new soundscape with its amplified volume and frequencies. 1967 Paiste launched the Giant Beat cymbals, which are characterized by warmth, strength and brilliance drummers had not known before.

These venerable cymbals, developed during the 1960’s rapid expansion of popular music, were faithfully recreated and re-launched by Paiste in 2005. Giant Beat cymbals offer the big, warm, brilliant vintage sound that takes you straight back to the roots of Rock.

Applications: Soft to loud settings. Live and recording. Blues, Rock ’n’ Roll, Beat Music, Rock, Country.

Sound: Bright and warm with a multilayered, full, dark, glassily splendid presence and a wonderfully loose, lively and big feel.
