Cymbals Giant Beat

These venerable cymbals – developed during the 1960’s rapid expansion of popular music – were faithfully recreated and re-launched by Paiste in 2005. Giant Beat cymbals offer the big, warm, brilliant vintage sound that takes you straight back to the roots of Rock.

The large and washy 'multi' cymbals play (as the name suggests) in multiple musical forms, either crashed with a big, complex shimmering sonic spectrum or as dark and mellow rides. What's more, to achieve truly great and distinctive tone, the multi's offer a 24" version that's a real force to be reckoned with, a sound as impressive and as dominating as it's physical presence! 

Two new thin crashes were welcomed to the range in 2012, giving a darker, warmer and equally as breathy addition to the multi's tonal offering, providing a little more sonic articulation to the Giant Beat range.
