Paiste 18" Giant Beat Multi-Functional Cymbal Traditional

Overview

Developed during the rapid expansion of rock music in the '60s and considered the forerunner to Paiste's now-standard 2002 series, the Giant Beat cymbals are crafted using traditional techniques and alloy for a warm, sedate sound. The company re-introduced this line in 2007 after being discontinued for a number of years. In addition, these are versatile cymbals with applications in both loud and quiet environments as well as rock, jazz, a wide variety of Latin genres, and funk.

The Multi-Functional cymbals are designed to function equally well as a crash or ride. They feature a full response and dark, lush articulation.

Years of production: 1967-ca. 1980, 2007-present

Composition: CuSn8 "2002" Bronze (92% copper, 8% tin)

Notable players: Jon Bonham, Patrick Carney, Jason McGerr
