Because a lot of care is put into their design and production, Paiste's Signature line of cymbals are some of the best made cymbals in the world. In fact, this company often teams up with professional drummers to design signature cymbals for a superior sounding product. Inspired by Danny Carey from the band Tool, this is a heavy ride cymbal which produces a pingy sound perfect for the rock or metal genres. In fact, the very distinct sound has made this pick one of the most popular ride cymbals on the market.
This cymbal has a very dry sound which helps articulate advanced ride cymbal patterns and avoids sounding washy. This cymbal does have a heavy feel, meaning it’s a little more appropriate for heavy hitters. It won’t help you by hiding inconsistencies in your pattern, so this is a great cymbal for developing your technique. Additionally, Paiste is known for making interesting looking cymbals and this one is no exception with a distinctive metallic-purple finish.
