    Default Paiste 18" Giant Beat Crash

    How is it? What's the weight? Is it dark or bright? I was looking at some today in NYC-window shopping, unfortunately- and most important to me, how does it stand up to the test of time?

    I think Bonham used Giant Beats... I think.
    So itchie, how did the kick sound?

    Bonham used 2002s. If ur interested in the Giant Beats, use Paiste's website sound files. Extremely accurate.

    I go to my local drum shop and purchase my sticks. I like to touch them before I buy them ;-)

    bonham used GBs up till the point 2oo2s were introduced which he then used until then end of his career.

    GBs are great cymbals im looking to get a 24" ride at some point, after getting interested in them watching the raconteurs

    I have 18 and 24 GB's. I love them both after having played sigs for many years. I've been trolling eBay for several months for a cheap 20...

    The ability to use the GB either as a ride or crash makes them extremely versatile. Aside from very high volume applications, IMO these things can be used in almost any musical situation.

    With that said, you still have to like the sound... which I do!!! Not as bright as 2002, not as "silvery" as the sigs. I'm glad I own 'em.
