Paiste Black Alphas

Well, we’ve devoted a considerable amount of bytes to Zildjian’s Pitch Black line, so now it’s Paiste’s turn. The Swiss cymbal maker’s Black Alphas were designed with input from Slipknot shredder Joey Jordison and are made from Paiste’s proprietary CuSn8 bronze, the same alloy that is used in the excellent 2002 line. The sound is described as “bright, crisp, energetic, powerful, and cutting.” Anyone tried them out yet?

  3. They are available now. You can probably pick them up or order them from your good local drum shop, or you can go the online route. Here’s a link to the Black Alpha package from ZZounds:–PST086SKCS
