DOES PAISTE EVEN MAKE SIGNATURES ANYMORE??

Short answer is yes, but it's not the complete answer.  There used to be 20+ Signatures, now there are like 5.  And one of the casualties is staring you in the face.  Do you have the will to look into the eyes of the dead?

Well if you feel like a Greek Hero prepared for the challenge...

Posted for your immense pleasure is this EXCEEDINGLY RARE and definitely NO LONGER MADE PAISTE Signature 14" Crystal Hats that are in FANTASTIC CONDITION! Check out the pictures!!  Remarkably there are

NO

Nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on these discontinued gems! They're in GREAT SHAPE with only light signs of use!

These Crystal Hats were damn hard to find even when Paiste DID PRODUCE them! 

These particular hats Are VERY FOCUSED! And still Paiste glassy smooth! 

And as many of you may know the Crystal line was pretty damn hard to find even when Paiste DID produce it! You saw a few at NAMM but not many stores ACTUALLY stocked them.

Paiste described their Crystals as:

"Silky, full, shadowy, somewhat glassy. Fairly wide range, fairly clean mix. Very responsive, somewhat soft and smooth feel with an even fade."

What a wonderful eulogy...

And these hats are constructed slightly differently than the Crystal Crashes were.  The crashes had the standard Signature lathing, these hats have very fine, pinpoint lathing, a la the Giant Beats, and they are heavily hammered like a Rough Ride-especially on that bottom cymbal. 

Weighing in at a delightful and pretty damn thin 864 grams for the Top cymbal and 1464 for the Bottom, these Crystal Hats play like a beautiful 14" Thin or Medium Thin Hats. The tone is fairly DARK and WARM.  They have that time honored Light Top/Medium Heavy Bottom combo which provides a great chick and wonderful articulation. 

They're like Flat Belled New Beats but much CLEANER sounding thanks to the B15 Alloy.

CRISP. VERY FOCUSED. ARTICULATE. RESPONSIVE. SEMI-DARK. PAISTE SIGNATURE CLEAN!

THAT'S THESE CRYSTAL HATS!

You can use this glorious pair of Paiste Signature 14" Crystal Hats for absolutely ANY style of music. They're perfect for mellower rock, pop, soul, R&B, funk and fusion, and country. And their darker leanings, warm vibe, and more controlled overtones make it perfect for jazz, blues, acoustic singer/songwriter gigs. And of course they're killer in the studio. Lush, warm, clean and with a more controlled tone.

And this was a hard cymbal to locate when they were alive.

AND THESE ARE FANTASTIC! As you can see from the pictures!! NICE AND CLEAN!!!

So do yourself a favor and grab this pair of controlled and clean EXCELLENT Condition NO LONGER MADE Flat Belled Paiste Signature 14" CRYSTAL HATS.

And hang onto them.
