Default Paiste Giant Beats

How close sonically are the new re-issues compared to the hard to find originals? Paiste claims them to be a "faithfull recreation" of the originals....anyone?

So you're saying that they sound EXACTLY like the original issues?

They are smack dab right on the money. No doubts. Play an aged setup of the Giant Beats next to the new ones (once broken in with mallets) and you would be hard pressed to find any subtle differences. They did a wonderful job of this. Even though the originals aged and one would assume "mellowed", they took that into account when putting these together. They have that mellowness 'built in', so to speak. Excellent reissues.

LD-- where you are there's got to be a stuper store where you can go listen to them??? or a least a good music store?? but yes paiste did an extensive sound modeling on the black lettered 2002's and the giant beats, they sound sampled the best of the best in their test group and then patterened the reissues after them, mcjnic said it well!!
