Paiste just put together a very cool “morph” video to demonstrate the difference between their various cymbal lines. Youtube video lesson hot shot Mike Johnston plays 8 bars of the same pattern on the same kit in the same room with the same mics, and some slick audio/video editing allows the viewer to watch and listen to the cymbal rig change on every repeat.  It’s a pretty cool trick and really shows the difference between the various options in the Paiste roster.

Great idea, Paiste.  If I was made of money I would do this kind of thing with a lot of my personal gear just for my own research.

PS… I’ve been using the Dark Energy line and the Traditional line for the past few years… the last two options in the morph sequence…
