Here's what the Andertons Drum Department say about Paiste Signature Line Cymbals
The Signature Series is Paiste's highest quality cymbal range, entirely made by hand. These cymbals are designed to be musical, colourful and creative, to give a drummer an individual cymbal sound.
The Signature series also offers an alternative finish, named Reflector. Paiste employ a proprietary surface treatment process that gives the cymbals a shimmering finish, but without producing high levels of heat, which can alter the cymbal sound. The Reflectors have better separation between bell and bow, plus the frequency range is better layer, allowing these to have more overtones.
The Signature Series are perfect for drummers wanting the very best from their cymbal set up.
