Florian Alexandru-Zorn (pictured) now endorses Paiste cymbals, the company announced. Alexandru-Zorn is the author of lesson books including The Complete Guide To Playing Brushes, The Brush Secret, and The Brush Revolution. He has also presented clinics throughout Europe, China, and North America including PASIC and Montreal DrumFest.

Alexandru-Zorn also founded the instructional website onlinelessons.tv and is a lecturer at the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg.

He says he chose to play Paiste Masters, complemented by models from Paiste’s Signature Traditionals and PSTX Series.

“I’m really happy to announce my new cymbal endorsement,” Alexandru-Zorn says. “I’m now officially playing Paiste cymbals! I’ve checked every major brand on the market and was truly surprised by the unique sound of Paiste. I’ve always thought they were mostly suitable for rock and pop music but with their Masters series they offer an unbelievable sound for jazz, singer-songwriter, and World music. I am very happy to be a member of the Paiste family!”
