Black Alpha Cymbals are initially manufactured using top-notch technology, and are then hand hammered using traditional methods, a combination that enhances quality and performance. Paiste then applies black ColorSound coating, and the series logo and model designations along with the Slipknot logo are silk screened in gold onto the cymbal's black shiny surface.
Alpha Cymbals have been well known for their first-class sound and fair prices since 1992, and feature professional character that fulfills high demands in quality and function. ColorSound is a proprietary coating for cymbals invented and pioneered by Paiste in the 1980s, which optimizes the effect of a coating on cymbal sound and is extremely durable.
