A handmade cymbal with a versatile sound is a great addition to any drum rig. The Paiste Dark Energy series have a deep tone that responds equally well to sticks, mallets or brushes.
This 10" splash has a dark, sustained tone with a very crisp response. This litte splash might be the smallest cymbal on your rig but it's got a suprising depth to it. Perfect for adding a little accent to a fill.
