  • Immaculate and in the bag! Paiste Dark Energy Mark II 21” Ride. Only played for the video!  Don’t guess at a stock photo and what your cymbal sounds like! 

  • Have a listen right here and buy with confidence!  
  • A perfect blend of Paiste CLEAN tone mixed with a stunning darkness. It’s what Paiste excels at. 

  • Paiste describes this cymbal as:
    "A fusion of darkness, energy, projection and brilliance. Very wide range, complex, musical mix. Responsive feel, extremely controllable. Woody, silvery, spanky ping over crunchy, thriving wash. Extremely versatile, flexible ride for wide ranging application in modern blended music styles. Mark I: Tends to be a bit quieter, darker and drier. This manifests itself in the overall sound character and in particular in the bell and ping sound."

  • As for the "woody" and "spanky," those words should never be used in the same sentence. Gross!!  C'mon now Paiste. 

  • Weighing in at a perfect 2564 grams, this Dark Energy Mark II 21” plays like a great DARK WARM Medium Thin or Medium Ride. The tone is clean, organic (for Paiste)  warm, and the attack is prominent but not overbearing and clanky. 

  • The bell is SOLID and medium low pitched. Crash on it for a roaring darkness. 

  • Goes from very quiet to loud settings with ease.  

  • Absolutely PERFECT shape!  

  • This has been Paiste’s FLAGSHIP CYMBAL for 2 decades, and you can tell.
