  • Wow! It’s a Paiste Dry Ride. 

  • For real this time.

  • It’s dry. 

  • Very hard to find FIRST YEAR Paiste Twenty MASTERS DARK DRY 21” Ride.

  • Dont spend $565 on a big box store guess at what this cymbal sounds like! Have a listen so you can buy with confidence. This is the exact cymbal you will receive.  

  • Take a look at this beauty! And take a listen. It’s Raw with alternating gold lathed ribbons. The underside has a pre-aged finish to really shore up the dry attack. 
  • This is the kind of cymbal you would expect from Istanbul AGOP - but Paiste threw their hat in the ring of Hand Hammered and their throwing hay makers! 

  • 2797 grams gives it a enough weight for a strong stick attack without clanging!  It’s Hand Hammered and has that famous complexity however it remains controlled - and that’s quite a feat! 

  • Paiste described this earlier 21” as:
    “Already at first glance one can recognize the exceptional character of the  21" Dark Dry Ride. The raw surface with numerous hammering marks is graced by wide lathing. The hallmark of these cymbals is a clearly defined but nevertheless dark and warm stick sound. Jazz players that prefer a controllable and dry sound, as well as Funk, Fusion or Pop drummers will enjoy the Dark Dry Rides. 

  • Dry, rich, silky, strong. Medium range, fairly complex mix. Very controllable and fairly dry feel. Silvery ping over rather short sustained and dusty wash. Ideally suited for articulated and precise paying in most musical styles such as R&B, Funk, Pop and Latin.”

  • Well there ya go!! 

  • Fairly Dry. Fairly dark. Strong stick articulation. Extremely responsive. Medium quick decay. At 2797 grams it had no problem cutting through - but this isn’t a Signature Dry Heavy Ride. This is a whole different tonal color.  Beautiful bell that has no problem penetrating. 

  • Larger 21” size from the first year of production. 

  • Great for low to loud volumes. It’s as versatile as Paiste promises.  

  • Aged over a decade and mellowed. Amazing condition. No issues.  Great patina starting to build in the underside. 

  • Dry and musical and will continue to age well. 

  • Hard to find from the 1st year. And definitely nowhere near $565!!  Buy with confidence and save a ton of money!
