  • Here’s a very hard to find Paiste - one of Paiste’s most collectible modern cymbals.  It was even rare for the brief window Paiste did produce it. And this one is perfect!  They are frequently wobbly and bent.  Not this one.  

  • And yes, that is an UNLATHED Signature.  This is one of the finest DARK sounding Rides Paiste ever produced!!

  • Weighing in at 2164 grams this is one of the ONLY Signatures that is really dry sounding. Although the Dry,  Dry Crisp, and Dry Heavy are all great Paiste Rides, none of them is really dry sounding-sure they're drier, but not really dry. Not dry like this ride is. As a matter of fact, not much is.

  • If Paiste made a Jack Dejohnette Series, this would be the ride.

  • Paiste always has their signature sound. And this ride is no exception-it still has a clean Paiste tone-but it's...dry.

  • As you can see, the bell is raw, yet hammered and unlathed and about 6 inches. The tone is med-dark-the darkest a Paiste Signature gets and the wash is obviously controlled but still present.  

  • Very organic and complex for Paiste - crashable  with a breathy, earthy, fast decay.  

  • Very thin for a Signature or Dark Energy.  Perfect for very low to medium loud settings.  Amazing under the microphone.

  • Very rare and collectible Paiste that is damn  ear impossible to find on this great condition.
