    Comments about Paiste PST 5 Mini China:

    This is a great sounding little cymbal. I like a china on the floor tom side and when I'm pressed for space, this is my choice. For a small cymbal this guy packs quite a punch. If your on a budget and want a quality product, you can't beat pst 5 or pst 8. And MUSIC 123 is the best!
