    I have no experience with them but plan on checking them out in person this weekend, going to compare them to the Meinl custom classics dark. I want colored cymbals and these are the only 2 out there.
    Ludwig Classic Maple 22x16,10x8,12x9,16x16
    Tama Starclassic B/W 22x16, 10x8, 12x9, 16x16
    Sabian HHX Legacy

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing

    I have not used those yet, but, IMHO if you're going to upgrade, those would be a good choice. They are the replacement product for the Alpha series. Same alloy is used for these as is used for the 2oo2's. I've used 2oo2's for a while and am very happy.

    Thanks. I was wondering when they were going to have a mid-range offering again since Alpha has been discontinued to the gen public.

    Yeah...at $400 they were a bit pricey. Well worth it though.

    I recently switched my entire cymbal set up to Paiste 900's. I was a die hard Ziidjian guy for years, used A & K Custom medium thins (which I broke a LOT, lol). Switched to Saluda, which I wouldn't recommend to anyone. IMO Saluda sounded like garbage and I tried several of their line. I figured I'd switch it up and try Paiste, went for the 900's. I've had them over a month and really love them. I also added an Alpha series crash that I picked up used (I believe the 900 series replaced the Alpha series).

    Anyway, sorry for rambling...I recommend trying them.

    It is indeed. I played it next to my Zildjian K Custom 22 Dark & they sounded very alike so, I couldn't justify keeping both. I have now sold the Paiste on

    Ok, Paiste experts, I have a question.

    At church I play a pair of Paiste Alpha 13" Medium Hats. I am the only drummer at our church, and I supplied all of the drums and the cymbals (and half of the PA). I am planning to swap out the Alpha hats with my Sabian XS20 14" Hats, which I have played in that room.

    So here is my question, once I have the Alpha Hats, I will need some other Paistes. Before I was a Sabian guy, I was a Paiste guy. I have played several gigs with hats, a crash-ride, and a smaller crash. The store I shop at has some Paiste, so I should be able to obtain a 16" or 17" crash there. For my third Paiste, I want an 18" crash-ride. I went to the Paiste website and listened to the Giant Beat 18" Multi cymbal, and I liked what I heard.

    Would that be the right cymbal for a small Paiste setup? Thanks. Peace and goodwill.

    The Giant Beat Multi's would sit beautifully into this situation I think. If 18" was the target then the GB 18 Multi is right up there with perfect cymbals for that situation.

    Just bought a 900 22 inch heavy ride.
    Great sounding for a mid tier cymbal.
    Wish they would make a flat ride in this series.DSC01055.jpg

    Those 90's are supposed to be 2002 bronze.
    Reminds me of the Meinl pure alloy which are quite a bit more expensive (but are great sounding cymbals).
