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. Sound Character: Mellow, warm, yet brilliant with a hissing shimmer. Medium range and fairly clean mix. Warm, light and woody open sound, paired with a well defined, soft chick-sound. A very classic hi-hat for multi-purpose application in different musical genres.
