True Metal looks with energy, versatility, and durability.
Developed in collaboration with super metal drummer Joey Jordison of Slipknot, this 18" Black Alpha "Slipknot Edition" Metal Rock China cuts. It meets the needs of all drummers who seek fairly priced cymbals with lethal looks, energy, versatility, and professional characteristics.
This China cymbal is coated using the original black ColorSound coating and then silk-screened with a rich gold Alpha logo, model designation and Slipknot logo. The "Slipknot Edition" is Joey’s personal selection of Alpha models. The ColorSound technology adds a bit of bite to the initial attack, centers the overtones, and adds raw presence to the entire sound character of this dark and exotic looking cymbal.
From 1992 through 2006, Alpha cymbals delivered dependability and first-class sound at a fair price. Paiste has advanced these trusted qualities through a complete redesign of the cymbal series and presents these completely revamped Black Alphas.
They are manufactured using top-notch technologies, and then fine-tuned using traditional hand hammering. The combination of hi-tech and traditional methods creates great value for artists looking to conserve their investment in professional class cymbals.
