My God YES!!! I've been using paiste for 16 years I do believe I used them all. I started off using 2000 and later going to Signatures when they first came out. I love Signatures but they seem to break on me because I'm a heavy hitter. I'm lucky enough that I was able to own 2 complete sets of these to keep me going while I was touring. Anyways after spending about 12k on broken cymbals in a 3yr period I tried a cheaper paiste with different alloys which was a 802 series. I purposely tried to break this cymbal which had a killer sound and needless to say I never broke that cymbal. Since then I never spent 12k on cymbals again. I use a 2002 hats and ride and now using PST5's crashes. I found in a live situation your not going to be able to tell much difference between these cymbals through the mix. Plus if you compare there really isn't much difference. But if your looking for cymbals buy them by the sound not series they are.

Paiste is the way to go if you can afford them. My last set I used Paiste Signature Series and they have been the best I have ever played. I can't afford them now so I am playing Sabien but I am saving up to go back to Paiste's.

I use both Paiste and Zildjian cymbals in my set up. I use Paiste 2002's for my crashes. They seem brighter than the Zildjian crashes to me. I guess it's a matter of preference. My ride is a 20" Zildjian Earth ride and I also use a 16" Zildjian China and 14" New beat Hi-hats.

I'm looking to eventually go with 15" Paiste Sound edge hi hats, a 24" 2002 ride and a 20" 2002 China.

Just my 2 cents

Well Paiste's have a great sound.. I love um... My only problem with them is, I've split a couple high end crashes and havn't split any othe brands... So, there for i wont buy any again. It's all about preferance, give them a shot and see what you think...

i think paite are wicked but u need to spend more money on paistes to get a good cymbal than u do on sabian. sabian's cheap cymbals are the best cheap cymablas to buy in my eyes compared to the other big name cymbal companys low budgets cymbals. Its a personal thing that u need to find what u like . every cymbal range has its strongs and weak points so is a great idea to mix them around a get u favorite out of everything

I am a Ziljian player these days.... I used to own a couple of Paiste cymbals once upon a time. If Zildjian went out of business 2moro- I'd buy Paiste (signature probably). They sound gr8 to me! :D

Paiste all the way!!!!
The signatures are really pricy, but anything in the mid to high range is just....fiesty (fhymes wit Paiste :idea: 8) )
It sucks that alot of the older series and models are discontinued like Dimensions and Innovations cuz those were awesome.

If Paiste still made the 602's I would have them esp the 15 in Hi-hat. I don't like the sound of any other Paiste only 602 and which I never should have sold my last set. A ludwig Rocker. Pearl Roto Tom snare 15' 12' deep, only 3 in the world was for Kiss when the fox played drums for them. 12', 14', 16' crash. 15' hi hat, 24' ride all 602's such a jazzy sound. I kick my self in the @ss every day I paid 3000.00 US for it piecing it together and sold it for 600.00 I didn't think I would ever be able to play again. I find Ziljian fills the sound I want now. Have to piece them together too. I have 7 need another hi hat 15' a K series ride and a few more crash. Right now I have ZBT pro series 4 set, 2 ZXT fast Crash and a 22' Avedis A Custom ping ride. I would like as many as I can fit around my double bass drum set. The picture I have on myspace doesn't have the newest cymbals show, I tried to use the drum kit software and wont work and I do have java installed.
They shouldn't have stopped making the 602's. my main drum supplier was West Coast Drums. I wish they weren't so far away from me. I was raught by the owner which is no longer with us anymore due to walking in on a robbery at his house and the Tama v.p was with him both killed.

I've always loved the Paiste sound; they always sounded a little brighter and more "shimmery" to me, even in the lower priced lines (I LOVED the 505 series). I just find them too brittle for the price, (I currently use Z Customs) and at the time I switched, don't think they had much of a warranty policy. That said, I may have to pony up for one of those new RUDE 24" Mega Power Rides...

Not so much a spammer, more of someone who is full of themselves and their Hawthorne Heights! ;P
I proudly play with Tama (snare drums), PDP, Sabian, LP, Paiste, Vic Firth, Aquarian (bass and snare heads), and Remo (tom heads)brands! My biggest drummer influences are Mic Fleetwood, Nicko McBrain, and Mike Portnoy.
