  • Super rare and hard to find famous Paistes right here! And they’re in great shape for being over 40 years old. 
  • RARE and definitely NO LONGER MADE pair of Vintage B20 ALLOY PAISTE 14" ORIGINAL SOUND CREATION DARK HIHATS that are in Fantastic condition.  

  • As many of you may know, Paiste breathed life into the Sound Creations with the help and inspiration from Jack Dejohnette in the 70s and they discontinued the line in the 80s. 

  • The B20 Alloy Sound Creations sound like NO MODERN PAISTE on the market today. Any Paiste fan can verify that. In recent years, the Sound Creations have become fiercely sought after cymbals because many people feel that they no doubt capture Paiste at their best in terms cymbalmaking.

  • You simply cannot get this sound from Paiste today. 

  • Paiste has always done THEIR THING--which is great, but it's ALWAYS Paiste. However, with the Sound Creations, Paiste really colored outside of the lines. The ENTIRE Series sounds nothing like their other Series. It's almost as the SCs were made by a different company. They're dark--ish, but they STILL project. They're complex, but retain definition. Truly great sounding cymbals.

  • As you can see, both the Top and Bottom Cymbals are Heavily Hammered. The lathing is extremely a vintage Giant Beat. The weights are 1147 grams for the Top Cymbal and 1280 grams for the Bottom Cymbal.

  • The Serial #s are consecutive.

  • If you are familiar with the Sound Creations, then you know that their tone is unique. Medium Low Pitched, DARK, but still CLEAN and CRISP and suprisingly COMPLEX for a Paiste...and in a B20 ALLOY TOO!!

  • Fantastic chick tone.  One of the best Paiste ever offered.

  • It's that simple. Dark, clean, crisp, B20...but with a fantastic dynamic range and musicality. Responsive at low volumes, and unlike the Paiste Traditionals...quite capable at medium to louder volumes.

  • Absolutely KILLER in ANY style of music.

  • Legendary and they were hard to find even when Paiste did make them.
  • Terrific shape. Musical. Collectible.
