  • You hardly ever see this Paiste outside of a google stock photo - and a guess at what it sounds like. 

  • Fortunately, you need not wonder. You can hear this exact cymbal. 

  • Harder to find Paiste GIANT BEAT THIN 20” Crash Ride Multi-Application Cymbal. 

  • As the moniker says, this Paiste is THIN. Like really thin. It opens up and crashes with supreme ease. 

  • Only 1662 grams. The edges are razor sharp!  

  • This is an absolutely glorious-sounding, glowing big thin crash with a fairly quick decay. 

  • Paiste describes this harder to find Giant Beat as:

  • Sizes: 18", 20"
    Volume: Medium
    Weight: Light
    Sound character: Fairly dark, warm, breathy. Medium wide range, slightly complex mix. Soft feel; very responsive. A dynamic, full, and velvety crash cymbal for a wide range of musical styles. Also well-suited for mallet applications.“

  • And that is accurate! 

  • The keywords here are Dark. Warm. Slightly complex. Breathy.  Very responsive. 

  • One of the softest and billowing, interesting cymbals Paiste has ever made. 

  • Very clean. Strong logos. Typical light tiny ripples/bends on the razor-thin edge - common in all paper-thin Paistes.
