I am looking to change some sounds slowly from Zildjian and want to dip my toe into the Paiste pool. Looking for the classic Paiste sound, their new offerings are great, but a lot of those Masters and Traditionals sound very Zildjian like to my ears.
I was just trying out the 14 Dark Crisps the other day. I've tried a few Sound Formula crashes and rides. If you're specifically trying to get away from the Zildjian/Sabian alloy sound, you'd probably want to go with the Signatures. The 602 alloy cymbals usually sound closer to the classic "A" sound than the general Paiste high end sound.
