Paiste Alpha Boomer Ride 22"
Since Nicko McBrain joined the British top metal band Iron Maiden almost 30 years ago, he has been respected worldwide as one of most celebrated and influential rock drummers. His long standing loyalty and dedication moved Paiste to honor Nicko with a special “Boomer” edition of the successful Alpha series, which will satisfy not only die-hard Nicko fans.
The Boomer cymbals sound concept is clearly defined: Rock, Hard Rock and classic Heavy Metal.
The glossy brilliant finish grabs immediate attention. Corresponding to Nicko’s professional touring set, Alpha Boomer Cymbalsare silk screened in blue. The Paiste logo in Maiden-font combined with the PowerSlave Eddie artwork bring the Boomer cymbals’ appearance to perfection.
Alpha cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well known for their first-class sound and fair prices.
The Brilliant Finish is accomplished by skilled craftsmen who hand polish the cymbals to a mirror perfect surface in the final production stage. Prior to that, top-notch hi-tech processes give Alpha cymbals their initial shape and strength. They are also further refined by traditional hand hammering.
