Sound character: Bright, full, warm, deep, somewhat dry, powerful. Wide range, clean mix. Heavy response, very balanced feel. Clear, cutting stick sound over big, full wash. Extremely loud, cutting ride with an enormous, big, loud and deep sounding bell. This special ride cymbal was created by Paiste's Sound Development team in collaboration with John Dolmayan, one of today's most influential Rock drummers.
Sound character: Full, silky, powerful, deep. Fairly wide range, fairly complex mix. Responsive, soft feel with powerful attributes. Somewhat papery stick sound with a glassy undertone over fairly dark and cloudy wash. Very versatile ride cymbal with good crash-ability for classic rock music applications. Developed in co-operation with the legendary "Van Halen" drummer Alex Van Halen.
Sound character: Wild, roaring, dark, trashy, shimmering. Wide range, fairly complex mix. Responsive feel. Aggressive, widespread, shattering attack with an oriental, acidic decay. Perfectly suited for all types of extreme musical styles that require a sturdy, almost uncontrollable China. Odd sizes offer a unique and different alternative to your set up.
