Paiste 24" and 15" Giant Beats vs the 24" and 15" K Lights???
.... Their main downfall is that they aren't a very complex-sounding cymbal. Nice and shimmery, but not much more to them than that....
Yeah, I've tried them all, and only the 602s have any sense of "depth" to them. That's not a bad thing, necessarily, if you like that kind of thing. I had a Paiste 404 ride that I wish I wouldn't have sold. It looked like an old A in color and lathing, but sounded very crystal-like in tone.I've found this to be the case with every Paiste I've tried. Very pleasing, seductive sound - clean and focused, but very one dimensional.
You'd better really like that one sound though, because you won't get all that much more variety from it.
Maybe I just haven't tried the right Paiste cymbals - IDK.
I'd agree completely there.They are completely different animals by nature.
At the end of the day, there is nothing similar about the two series at all, save for them being round, bronze and hit with a stick.
