Ndugu Chancler’s Masterpiece

Nottwil/Switzerland – The renowned Swiss cymbal maker Paiste announces the introduction of a new Twenty Masters Collection ride cymbal, the 22” Crisp Ride.

The 22“ Crisp Ride was created in collaboration with Ndugu Chancler, whose decades of session work is highly respected worldwide. His recordings include work with Weather Report, Santana, Herbie Hancock, Lionel Richie and one of the most recognizable drum grooves on Michael Jackson’s legendary “Billy Jean”.

The Crisp Ride joins the eclectic series of Artist Inspiration cymbals. In comparison to the „Dark“ cymbals in the Twenty Masters Collection the basic sound color of the Crisp Ride is brighter, while retaining the richness and warmth of the CuSn20 bronze. It is named for the lucent, crispy stick definition over a smooth, controllable wash. The bell sound is clear but discreet and pleasant.

In honor of his mother, Ndugu Chancler named the cymbal „Rosie“, and it carries an illustration of a rose in the artwork below the bell.

The Twenty Masters Collection is an assemblage of exquisite and laboriously hand-manufactured cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres. The twelve ride models integrate the experience of the decades in the art of cymbal making with the inspirations of international top drummers.
