Default New Paiste Giant Beat Setup

Here's my kit with my new cymbal setup. I decided to go with all paiste giant beat. The sound is totally what I've been looking for. I love their classic sound, versatility and looks. It's funny cuz I've always been a zildjian fan. I guess my ears have changed over the years.

Any other zildjian paiste converts?

15" HiHats
18" Multi
20" Multi
24" Ride

Personally, I think the Giant Beat and the 2002 lines are the best they have.

Nice set up.

Wow man, I love your kit, it looks very sharp.
I knew I had seen it before, and then I remembered that you just changed the cymbals.
Do you have any videos of you playing it?

This just means that your are becoming a grown up, and you are developing a more sophisticated palate.

I'm using the exact same cymbal setup right now - it's such a great line from Paiste. The 24" cymbal is one of my all-time favorites - super versatile. The hats are also great since they don't have that hyper-aggressive sound that a lot of hats have now - also aren't clangy like a lot hats seem to be.

Wait till you do some recording with them. That 24 is great; with the right placement you can get a totally washed out vibe, or you can get a little more 70s definition.

Nice kit, I love the setup. You have a very Jason McGerr-esque look now. ;)

I have a habit of taking note of peoples' throne and seating position, yours is very "square", as if you're pointing directly forward. Not that it's "wrong" in any way...but I sat like that at one time and found it more comfortable to angle the BD to my right, as if my feet and rump formed a "tripod". I got this tip from Matt Ritter's video...helped a LOT with my feet!

Anyhow, it's a beauty - would love to hear some sounds!

I bought them through ebay. It was a much better deal than GC or MF.

18" Multi $206
20" Multi $250
15" HHat $250
24" Ride $260
Total $966

Yeah my other drum friends say the same thing. It was seeing/hearnig him play the giant beat that first turned me on to them and of course, Bonzo the great.

That's funny I have same video. I tried turning to the right but developed ankle problems. Straight on seems to work the same for me. Thanks for the input.

Cadwiz that is a very classy and beautiful kit. Those giant beats are the perfect addition. I don't know to much about DDrums but the finish looks super nice. Great looking drums !

What a clean setup. You were running A Customs before, correct? Very cool stuff. Great pics, too. A similar thing happened to me as a Sabian/Paiste "convert." I still love the HHX sound, and I still have that gear. However, I just was mesmerized by the Paiste Twenty series and dove in. Now I'm neck deep in Twentys. It's a nice place to be.

Enjoy!

In general, the concept of crash/ride or ride/crash is the that the cybal through it's material, weight, shape and mfg has charecteristics that lend itself for both riding and crashing.

Also, we have an idea of what each type (crash, ride etc.) is supposed to sound like and how it should perform. It's been my experience that c/r or r/c don't do both well. Some drummers complain that "multi" cymbal will be to washy or lacking in stick definition as a ride or that it's to "gongy" as a crash. But each multi type of cymbal has its strength. Hence, why a r/c is better for riding vs a c/r is better for crashing. For example, the 18" is an awesome crash but not so much as a ride. My 20" performs better as a ride than a crash. IMO.

Now, don't get the wrong idea. due to these characteristics multi cymbals are much more versatile and excel in some areas. You can get alot more sounds and uses from them. It's this wide range of uses that attracted me to them.

Utimately, it's all about the sound you want and how well the cymbal achieves it.

First, the Dorian ash kit looks great!

Second, I have recently transitioned from Zildjian A's to 2002's. I am stuck, in that both have merits and I am an equal opportunity bronze basher. The 2002's really cut through and are easier to record, or at least they sound more like they really do on a recording than many b20's I have heard.

The giant beats are definitely a nice alternative to bright/cut.

I'm a convert as well. I played Zildjian A's for years. From there, I switched to A Custom. When I decided to minimize my cymbal setup I found that the A Customs didn't have the versatility I needed. I was looking for a set of cymbals that I could use for all types of music. The GB Multi's fit the bill perfectly. I play fusion, punk, and good ol' fashion rock-n-roll. The GB's fit right in the pocket for all of them.

In terms of recording, I found that my Paiste cymbals recorded better (???). I'm not sure why but that has been my experience.

I think it's because Paiste's buildup and decay are so smooth and even. There are not a lot of harmonics compared to an a custom. It's almost like gating an a-custom. Watching "time warp" I'd say paiste cymbals may be more rigid than zildjians.

Yeah, they are heavy. They're DW's multi stands. I bought them cuz they allowed me to mount more cymbals per stand. My prior setup had 7 cymbals. See pic.

Now with GB's only they're overkill...lol.

How are the how are the head's on the ddrum? its because i might get the ddrum dominion ash too for my next set and I'm currently just using g2's but these heads are getting a lot of attention recently.

btw I always preferred the black burst finish but after seeing yours i think I prefer the red burst :)
