  • The Famous Rough Ride! 

  • And this is a very Early model - over 30 years old.  Literally from the 2nd year of Signature production. 

  • With its deep golf-ball style hammering and light and lively tone, this Rough Ride was the standout in the entire Signature Series catalog.  It’s the most un-Paiste-like Signature because it’s fairly complex and multi-dimensional.  Most Signatures are clean and crisp sounding, and that’s great, but they’re known for being one dimensional. 

  • This Rough has an entirely new dimension.  

  • And it’s also the thinnest of Signatures weighing in at only 2152 grams.  

  • Very deep and wavy hammering that is unlike any other Paiste before or since, flat profile with a steeply bowed edge that creates its complex nature. 

  • The end result is a Paiste that Jack DeJohnette would play - this is the Sound Creation Dark Ride of the Signature Series.  That’s the vibe. 

  • Complex. Light and lively musicality that offers a standout airiness unlike any other Paiste. Both dark and bright overtones present. 

  • Great shape with light typical wear.  Aged and mellowed 3 decades.  

  • A Rare and unique Paiste - and the earliest one I have ever seen.
