Paiste announces the launch of the PSTX models 10”/8” and 12”/10” Splash Stacks as well as the 20” Swiss Medium Crash.
Small, sharp and nasty: the 10”/8” and 12”/10” Splash Stacks enrich the sound arsenal for drummers and percussionists with short, biting accents. Splash Stacks consist of brass tops and 2002 bronze bottoms.
The tops feature the characteristic PSTX style hole pattern of varying diameters that cause the trashy sound character. The 2” smaller bottom cymbals feature an inverted bell and the contact area between the two cymbals is minimal.
Due to their dry, crisp sound, fast rhythmic patterns and fill-ins on Splash Stacks deliver definite elements of surprise. Splash Stacks also function well as a noisy X-Hat. The 20” PSTX Swiss Medium Crash complements the PSTX series with an exotic trashy crash of medium weight for more volume and added attack.
PSTX are made in Switzerland from a variety of copper alloys and aluminum using a combination of modern, innovative methods and traditional hand craftsmanship that has remained unchanged in over half a century.
