Cool, I really like what I've heard of some Paiste
sigs. I'll hunt some down.
Saying that, I also really like some Sabians
, and some Zildjians
, and some others, and some others again. That's why I have Ks sitting alongside Istanbuls. I don't mind spending countless hours searching, it's part of what makes it all worthwhile and if they sound right they sound right. Maybe that'll change when I get into Paistes
, I admit I have little experience of them.
I think it's ok to make a clear distinction between Zildjian
, they make different cymbals and that's enough to make them worth discussing as separate entities. Sabians
if you look at the point where the company split historically, but there are differences. In fact there are differences across any manufacturer's range, so you can't really even say Zildjians
. Granted you could say 18" A Custom Crashes always sound basically the same, but that's true of any company, to differing degrees. I'm interested in all cymbals, even if I don't like a lot of them.
Anyway.... I'd still like to see a list of how the Paiste
models range from budget to pro, I'm just after an objective bunch of cold, hard data for now (ok, I know that's difficult because it's such a personal and emotional thing etc. etc.), just a list like AvengedDrummers Zildjian
list will suffice for now, then we can tear into it and discuss what makes one better than the other.
