- Like 2002 meets a Dark Energy! That was the vibe on this Dimensions series. It was the classic 2002 alloy with some hallmark Dark Energy hammering.
- And look at the PAISTE Signature - script, the exact same logo as the Dark Energy.
- This 20” Medium Heavy Wild Ride is in fantastic shape for approaching its 20th birthday.
- Paiste fumbled the marketing on this Dimensions Series - people didn't really what these were or what they were marketed towards.
- The bottom line is they were 2002s with new lathing techniques with some Dark Energy genes and a few other ideas thrown in.
- And if you look at the craftsmanship on this 20” it has a SERRATED style lathing (on the underside) that Paiste never used before nor since. And the hammering is the same as the DARK ENERGY - deep circular style throughout and around the bell.
- It comes as no surprise that many of the Dimensions sound like DARKER and more COMPLEX 2002s.
- This being the Medium Heavy Wild Ride it offers more complexity and a rich, full organic tone. It’s not as sterile as 2002 can be. It’s a bit dirtier - noticeably more complex than your standard 2002 but still has the body to project. Very solid bell!
- 2526 grams.
- That’s the beauty of this 20” Medium Heavy Wild Ride. It sounds like no other Paiste - before. Nor since.
- No issues. The light patina is just starting to build and focus the attack.
- A great sounding slightly darker, complex Paiste that projects.
