PAISTE CYMBALS - Francis' history with Paiste Cymbals goes way back to 1994, when his father bought him his very first cymbals, a pair of Paiste Alpha hats.
Since then, Francis became a huge Paiste fan. His first drum teacher, Danilo Pizzato, had all Paiste Cymbals, and his drum heroes Nicko McBrain and Aquiles Priester, both long time Paiste artists, were also huge influences on him.
The passion turned into an edorsement relationship in June, 2018, which Francis is very proud of.
