"The 18 and 20 inch Basher - the name says it all: imagine a 2002 Medium on steroids! Lively, explosive but controlled at the same time! Great to bash out crash/ride patterns and unique crash sounds. The 12 and 14 inch Shred Bell is a unique cymbal - you can 'shred' fast ride patterns on it, and get a controlled, lively, metallic sound or hit it and out comes an awesome, cutting bell sound! The 14 inch Blast China is small but in your face! Explosive, lively, raw, cutting cymbal. Great for blast beat patterns and china hits. Perfect size to set up anywhere around your kit. Three different cymbals, three unique sounds, one choice – my new Rudes."
Rudes are entirely made by hand from the originally used CuSn8 bronze.
Twenty Masters Collection renamed as Masters, expanding the dark side
Paiste will also introduce the Masters Dark Crash and Dark Hi-Hat models.
Masters, originally dubbed the Twenty Masters Collection, are entirely made by hand from CuSn20 bronze. The series started out with twelve rides that are amongst the most exquisite cymbals of the Paiste assortment. Now three crashes and two hats join the series to expand the unique Masters sound atmosphere to additional cymbal types.
The new models were designed in collaboration with notable jazz drummers Gregory Hutchinson and André Ceccarelli, and reflect their concept of traditional sound with modern quality standard.
The 16", 18" and 20" Dark Crash models are based on the critically acclaimed Masters Dark Ride atmosphere that exudes darkness, warmth and a smoky vibe. Tender clarity dwells in these crash cymbals, they exhibit a remarkably buttery, soft feel, enabling the finest dynamic nuances. The 20" crash is also suited for airy, light ride patterns.
The 14" and 15" Dark Hi-Hats are said to radiate a similarly breathy timbre. According to Paiste, they emanate a soft musical closed sound, and open up with a satisfying smoky wash. Yet, the chick sound always stays clear and assertive.
With the introduction of the new models, the series is re-christened simply as Masters. Commenting on the name change, Erik Paiste states:
"Our esteemed artists are using this designation for the cymbals, which was originally dubbed the Twenty Masters Collection. Who are we to argue? So be it."
