Very powerful, energetic china with wide musical application.

Medium bright, full, slightly raw and dark. Medium range, focused, complex mix. Explosive, breathy, shattering crash; fairly bright and trashy.

The PST 5 cymbals are affordable cymbals with never-before-possible sound quality and pro-level looks. Paiste employs modern, hi-tech production techniques that transfer the spirit and essence of 70 years of hand-manufacturing into premium-quality, musical cymbals.

For the manufacture of PST 5 cymbals, Paiste uses the same high-grade bronze alloy as in its professional class.

  • Weight: medium heavy
  • Volume: medium to very loud

Comments about Paiste PST 5 China:

When i first got it, i was just looking for a china cymbal, and i would take anything that i would get, i thought i liked it but it just was'nt my sound. it is a great beginner cymbal, but its nothing compared to the Wuhan china i have now.

A masterpiece at quarter the price.

Comments about Paiste PST 5 China:

When I first ordered this cymbal I have to admit I had my reservations due to it being so cheap, but when I received it I was instantly taken by the beautiful shiny finish and sturdy feeling. After playing this for awhile I thought to myself "Did they send my a signature with the PST 5 logo on it" It was that good, beautiful crisp and bright swish sound and amazing sustain, I have the 18" and I have fallen in love with Paiste. These guys know their cymbal. Don't think twice get this thing. You won't be disappointed. :D
