I forgot to mention it's coming soon. So look out for this set up in a few months. I will be getting the Two Black Alpha crashes within this and next month.

I just got my Paiste Black Alpha 18" Crash today. If I had only gotten these a year ago when they first came out, I would of gotten the whole set with Two Crashes, hi-hats, ride and China. But I had already gotten new cymbals then. Now they only sell the crashes and Ride, Know where I can get Hi-hats and a China in Black Alphas?

Ebay...

I have to say, Paiste makes better "budget" cymbals than anyone. I used to have a 505 crash. SWEET little cymbal, that was.

Yeah Paiste has more budget lines than any other company. They have 101's, 201's, Pst 3's, Pst 5's, and then Alphas. Plenty of choices to get started right. I mean Zildjian has ZBT's and ZHt's, Sabian has the B8. Paiste is the best.

in the best case intermediate. personally, I don't like them at all. I'd rather play PST5.

Even the PST 5 series holds up strong live and in studios. I've even played them among signatures and 2002's for recording and they blended just fine naturally.

i have talked with several who believe as you and i that pst5's blend well. i have a pst5 18" thin crash that blends great with my alpha rock crashes. The only high end cymbals (as i dont using this term) are 2002 splashes... i buy alphas (im a paiste/zildjian dealer) i can get anything i want at cost. but i choose to go alpha cause of the sound, not price.
