Paiste first pioneered this featured production process with our innovative Reflector Cymbals back in the 1980's. Unlike modern high speed buffing methods, Paiste Reflector Cymbals employ a proprietary surface treatment technique that generates a smooth, luminous, shimmering finish - without producing high levels of heat, which can substantially alter the natural condition of the bronze metal and dampen the cymbal sound.
Fairly dirty, full, cutting, rich. Fairly wide range, complex mix. Very responsive feel. Full, barking and piercing, yet somewhat cushy open sound. Tight and rough chick sound. A very balanced hi-hat with a healthy dose of dirt and a note of darkness, featuring enhanced power for players that require a consistently strong pair of hi-hats.
Sizes: 14" Weight: medium top / extra heavy bottom Volume: medium low to loud Stick Sound: rich, somewhat dirty Intensity: lively Sustain: medium Chick Sound: lush, tight
