Paiste 900 18" China Cymbal



Available to order Click for more information

The Paiste 900 18” China Cymbal is filled with dark energetic tone. Ideal for adding trashy accents to your music and for cutting through in louder situations.

Exotic Effect China

The Paiste 18” China has a dark complexity to its sound. With an explosive shattering tone perfect for times when you need to assert your sound and cut through the mix.

This Paiste China has an exotic, washy, attacking stick articulation that blends into a trashy washing medium sustain. It's very responsive for a flash of tone exactly when you need it.

The medium thin weight of this 18” China allows it to open up quickly for an aggressively attacking tone that snaps into action with an assertive burst of sound. The result is a China that is ideal for accenting and emphasising, perfect for those times when you need a musical punctuation mark.

Rather than a China that would work well for ride patterns, the Paiste 900 China is more of a one-hit wonder for those specific accents and embellishments. A way to lift and emphasise your music without overpowering the situation.

The Paiste 900 China is a great way to push yourself creatively to utilise a new range of tone to enhance your music and your playing.

The 900 China Cymbal is available in sizes 14”, 16” and 18”

900 Series Cymbals

The Paiste 900 Series was designed to offer advanced sound at a reasonable price. The 900 range features a sophisticated hybrid manufacturing process that is refined by Swiss Craftsmen who utilise a mixture of hand hammering and lathing.

The cymbals are applied with a special finish to create a darkened appearance that amplifies the lathed grooves and hammer marks for an aesthetic beautifully blends together roughness and elegance.

Utilising the same base bronze as the legendary 2002 series, these cymbals have a greater flexibility that results in a giving feel and outstanding playability. The range offers an overall warm, full sound with subdued, discreet brightness. The larger and heavier models of the series provide great brilliance, cut and projection.

Consisting of a range that focuses on crashes and rides of medium and heavy medium weight, the full series is completed with a variety of hi-hats, splashes and chinas for a well rounded set ideal for a vast array of stylistic needs.
