Paiste Masters Collection 22" Dark Crisp Ride
Masters started out as an assemblage of twelve rides - exquisite and laboriously hand-manufactured cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres. Crashes, hi-hats and FX cymbals joined the series to expand the unique Masters sound. Masters integrate the experience of the decades long art of cymbal making with the inspirations of top international drummers.
A wide variety of sound concepts from dark to bright, dry to sustaining, pronounced to washy, smooth to strong. Each cymbal has its very own sound character that has to be experienced.
The Dark Crisp Ride has a nice and crispy stick sound supported by a strong, open and dark shimmering wash with perfect control. Well suited for all styles of music that require great dynamics and full-bodied ride sound.
