Originally conceived as a production of rides encapsulating Paiste's vintage cymbal-smithing process, the Masters evolved into a complete series after positive reception from the community. The cymbals typically have a dark character, soft response evocative of older cymbals and a complex tonality.

The Masters Dark Crash is built with a medium-thin weight and produces a rich, atmospheric wash.
