Mark I: Tends to be a bit quieter, darker and drier. This manifests itself in the overall sound character and in particular in the bell and ping sound. Introduction: 2004"New Signature Class": The elitist concept for this class of cymbals allows Paiste to use ultimate artistic freedom in the creation of cymbal sound. It calls for absolute exclusivity, total individuality, full concentration on the individual cymbal's characteristics and complete freedom from the sonic constraints of a series personality. These are ultimate cymbal creations that defy categorization. They represent the highest state of the art in Paiste cymbal sound and quality. The "Mark X" Principle: As Paiste creates cymbals of certain sound character and dynamic functionality, they allow themselves the option of creating variations on that basic theme. These variations are then designated "Mark I", "Mark II", and so on. With this principle, they give themselves another release from commonality and thus freedom to explore cymbal sound wherever it may lead. "Dark Energy": The initial set of Paiste cymbals to populate the "New Signature Class" is designated "Dark Energy". Created as a "fusion" of the fundamental characteristics of "Signature" and "Traditionals", "Dark Energy" cymbals combine depth, darkness, total musicality and complex harmonics with brilliance, richness and projection. In addition, the cymbal's functional range encompasses the sheer impossible combination of ultimate dynamic control and strength in projection.<
