John JR Robinson, the most recorded drummer in the world, together with bass player Hussain Jiffry, plays an incredible drum solo and session of 11 minutes demoing the Paiste Thin, Thin Hi-Hat and Swish cymbals.
In the Paiste Masters series, the Swiss cymbal company announces two new Thin models: a 20", 22" and 24" Thin, the 14", 15" and 16" Thin Hi-Hats and a 22" Swish. Of course the Hi-Hats are primarily used as Hi-Hats, but the new Thin cymbals and the Swish have many more dynamics to them then you might expect. These Masters are obviously of thin weight, but the series also has cymbals in types like Crisp, Dark Crisp, Mellow and Medium.
Watch our Paiste Cymbals demo of the Masters Thin, Thin Hi-Hat and Swish:
Hussain Jiffry - a quick introduction

He played and recorded with Michael McDonald, Chaka Khan, Steve Winwood, Tito Puente, Jonathan Butler, Whitney Houston, Dionne Warwick, Yanni and many others.
You can find Hussain Jiffry on albums like Airto Moreira's Life After That (2003), and as vocalist on the Dave Weckl Band 2002 release 'Perpetual Motion'.
