Since joining Iron Maiden, Nicko McBrain has become one of the most admired and influential drummers in modern times. Recent tours of the British top metal band are breaking all records, including the current The Book of Souls world tour, which features a unique cymbal set crafted for Nicko by Paiste.
Inspired by the Mayan theme of the tour stage set, Paiste and Nicko collaborated to create special silk screens for the cymbals. Elements of the artwork include the sun god Tonatiuh, and the date January 9, 1983 written in Mayan calendar glyphs, the day of Nicko’s very first session with Iron Maiden. The Paiste logos are rendered in Iron Maiden script.
Few drummers have become as much of an influence as Nicko McBrain. Having joined Iron Maiden in 1983, McBrain quickly established himself as having a unique style that complemented the band’s forward-thinking music. McBrain’s punchy technique and charismatic performances have inspired drummers for decades. The limited edition Paiste cymbals have been carefully chosen with McBrain to suit his particular style and weight of playing. The silk screened finishes on each cymbal features engraved Mayan script relating to significant points in McBrain’s drumming career. The Treasures cymbal box set is a suitable tribute to one of metal's most highly regarded musicians.
Signature Reflector Series
The Signature Reflector series cymbals featured in the Treasures set have a classic tone that’s ideal for metal drummers. Originally produced in the 1980s, this cymbal series has a traditional bronze alloy that’s crafted at a colder temperature than standard. The result is a smooth, dense sound with slightly dampened high frequencies and plenty of depth. This dark tone has a wide frequency range when struck with different weights of your stick. The bell character is more separated than a traditional alloy cymbal, but no control is lost due to this. This overall sound perfectly matches Iron Maiden’s music, and is suitable for musicians wanting intensity from their cymbal.
Limited Edition Treasure Box
The Treasures set not only includes an outstanding range of cymbals, but also a bespoke box and extra contents. The wooden case is laser engraved with Mayan themed symbols and features a steel Paiste plaque. The CD and vinyls of Iron Maiden’s album ‘The Book of Souls’ have been signed, as well as McBrain’s signature drumsticks and a signature of authenticity. This collection has been limited to 83 worldwide units, and is a stunning tribute to Nicko McBrain’s musicianship.
