Default Paiste 1000 series

When i was in grade school, my teacher Gave me a cymbal. It was a 20 inch Paiste 1000 heavy ride. This thing was quite a piece of art-it had a very rough finish that almost felt like it had a grain, and was a monster ride as well as a decent crash. I broke the darn thing a few years back and cant seem to find any. I was wondering if anyone knew a bit of history about these cymbals, and what i could expect to pay for one these days?

thanks

1000's were entry level cymbals. At the time the 3000's were the higher quality of the line, along with the 2002's. Keep checking Ebay or Craigslist.

These were B8 (2oo2) alloy cymbals released in 1987 and discontinued in the early to mid 90's. As far as the comment about entry level....just a clarification. There were two other "entry" models below these 200's and 400's so they are not bottom of the barrel by any means. Although, still categorized as entry level, I would put them on par with today's Alpha's.

1000's were also available unlathed as RUDE's and these cymbals are generally thought to be very good...even collectable. They were also available in Colorsound versions. Your heavy ride would have been one of the better cymbals also.

1000's still come up regularly on e-bay so you should be able to find what you are looking for. In good condition (undamaged except stick marks) the heavy ride might go between $60 to $90 in my estimation.

Good luck.
Chris.

I just picked up a 22" 1000 Heavy (ride) and it's got lots of authority, a great pronounced ping. Mine's not especially crashable though...

There were two different Paiste 1000 lines and it is important to be clear about which one is talking about

The standard green label 1000s which also came as Rude. These were midline type cymbals. These did not come in Colorsound.

The 1000s with the purple labels were top of line Marching/Concert cymbals. These did come in Colorsound.
