A sonically and visually unique crash cymbal, the Paiste Alpha 18" Thin Swiss Crash will add a great new sound and look to your drum set!

Paiste Alpha Series Description: “The creation of mid-range cymbals with the highest demand in sound quality and function. “ Paiste achieves all of that and much more with the Alpha Swiss Crash Cymbals! Can we assume that they are called “Swiss” because they are full of holes? Available in both Thin and Medium weights, these are unique and striking cymbals, both in sound and appearance and will add a wild sonic accent to your playing and an equally distinctive visual accent to your drum set!

Let’s focus on the Alpha 18” Thin Swiss Crash. The sound of it can be described as exotic, warm and trashy (and we mean that in a good way!) It has a medium range of tones and a complex mix, a fast and responsive feel and a fairly quick decay. It is an explosive crash cymbal with a strong, low wash for unique effects in many styles of music.

The Specs:

• Alloy: CuSn8 Bronze, also known as “Paiste 2002 Bronze”

• Size: 18"

• Weight: medium thin

• Volume: medium low to medium loud

• Stick Sound: fairly washy

• Intensity: lively!

• Sustain: medium short

• Bell Character: integrated

• Appearance: Really cool!

Sometimes drummers need to call a little extra attention to ourselves and to have a new way to add to the musical mix. The Paiste Alpha 18” Thin Swiss Crash is a reasonably inexpensive way to do just that!
