Carl Palmer Vir2osity

Nottwil/Switzerland – The renowned cymbal maker Paiste announces the introduction of the Signature 20" Duo Ride «Vir2osity».

 


The «Vir2osity» 20" Duo Ride was created in collaboration with the legendary Carl Palmer, the drum virtuoso behind the progressive rock supergroup ELP, who powerfully incorporated classical and jazz influences into the early rock drumming of the 1970s and continues to distinguish himself with his inimitable and energetic drumming style that highlights technical prowess, speed and dexterity.


The newly developed model is loosely based on the original Signature Dry Dark Ride, with its characteristic, pronounced hammer marks on an earthy dark surface, being the result of intense heat treatment. The outer perimeter and the bell of the cymbal are then lathed using the unique Reflector finish.


The «Vir2osity» 20" Duo Ride executes Carl’s exclusive ideas for a variable ride cymbal with distinct playing zones. In general, this heavy cymbal features a fairly raw, earthy, complex wash that’s very tight and controlled. The overall glassy stick sound tends towards a drier, more raw and wooden note in the un-lathed zone, while the lathed zone presents a livelier, crisper and richer ping. The bell is well separated and decidedly loud and piercing.


As a tribute to Carl’s inspiration, the label «Vir2osity» and a rendition of Carl’s personal emblem have been placed on the cymbal.


Signature Series cymbals are made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.


Artist Inspiration cymbals are created by Paiste featuring Artists’ uncompromising sound ideas and visual concepts.
