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.
Giant Beat Thin
Fairly dark, warm, breathy.
Medium wide range, slightly complex mix. Soft feel; very responsive.
A dynamic, full and velvety crash cymbal for a wide range of musical styles.
Also well-suited for mallet applications.
"These crashes responded extremely well to the lightest flick of a pencil-size stick yet retained its tone when hit with force. This broad dynamic range was astounding. I found myself probing for discrepancies or flaws, but I honestly couldn't find any.
These Giant Beats are marked "thin," but Paiste stops short of designating them as rides or crashes. The application is up for grabs and depends on the unique touch of each drummer. They can articulate the passage of time as rides, but that's not their forte; they're built to respond like lightning" - T. Bruce Witted
