Giant Beat


Paiste Giant Beat Cymbals at Drum Center of Portsmouth

Paiste's Giant Beat series were introduced in 1967 and designed to keep up with the increasing dynamic ranges that bands of the time were creating. These cymbals were the first to use Paiste’s CuSn8 Bronze alloy and were the predecessor of the now industry standard 2002 Series. Of course, you can’t mention Giant Beats without mentioning they were John Bonham’s cymbals of choice for much of his career. Giant Beat cymbals are multi-functional as either crash or ride cymbals, offering an ideal blend of articulation, wash and crash-ability. If you’re looking for versatility in your cymbal setup, give Paiste Giant Beats a giant consideration.
