The Paiste Signature Flanger Bell features bright, cool, full, and loud sound characteristics with a narrow range and complex mix. This instrument has a heavy, very responsive feel with a shattering, metallic, explosive attack followed by droning, full, long shimmering fade. The overall sound is characterized by strong modulating, whirling harmonics. It is a loud, lively, exotic cymbal with wide and definitely unusual application possibilities. Also great played with mallets.
