Paiste honors Joey Jordison's passion for eccentric and unique cymbal designs with a special edition in its Alpha series which are both a visually and sonically close fit to Joey's current Slipknot touring set.
As the name reveals, Black Alphas contain Paiste's innovative black Colorsound coating and each cymbal features unique and deep hammer marks.

Applications: Medium to very loud settings · Live and recording · Metal, Heavy Rock, Punk, Metalcore, Hard Rock, Crossover

The cymbal case has been on display in our store and there is some peeling of the Joey Jordison Logo sticker on the Bonus Paiste Cymbal Vault, as can be seen in the case photo.
The cymbals have never been used though, only carefully handled for the photos.
