Excellent for jazz, funk, and R&B.
Paiste has undertaken a remarkable historical research project aimed at accurately re-creating the "lost" cymbal sounds of the 40s-50s-60s era, the Golden Age of Blues, Jazz, Big Band, and Be-Bop.
Researched in loving detail and tested by drummers noted for their historical expertise, the new "Traditional" collection - four models of Rides, as well as Hi-Hat, Splash, China, Crash and Swish cymbals - makes the rich sounds of history, from sizzling Big Band swing and Jazz to the smoky intensity of Bop and Blues available today.
Unlike the fragile vintage instruments from those times, the new "Traditional" cymbals offer the unique range, versatility of expression, and reliable durability offered by Paistes patented "Sound Alloy", the state-of-the-art bronze compound from which they are crafted. These new instruments will especially delight collectors, connoisseurs and lovers of traditional cymbal sound.
The Traditional Medium Light Hi-Hat. The Medium Light hi-hat is very soft and sensitive with a dark, slightly "wet" stick sound and a silvery, fragile chick. The open/closed sound is full, warm and dry. It reacts quickly to changes in footwork.
