- The Paiste pre-cursor to the Nicko McBrain POWER SLAVE!
- Check this long discontinued Paiste Signature out!
- It’s like a lathed, Reflector EARTH RIDE.
- You hardly ever find this beauty today…or 20 years ago.
- One of the earlier Signature Reflector models - before they said “Reflector” on them - but this cymbal is MUCH heavier and drier than those later Reflectors.
- Very fine lathing. Reflector Finish.
- Not at all hammered like ANY Paiste Signature.
- MASSIVE 6” BELL that just feels good! Famous Paiste “DING” tone but much drier and much more aggressive than any regular Signature could hope to be.
- Tipping the scales at 3160 grams - this is one of the HEAVIEST cymbals Paiste has ever produced.
- Paiste described this earlier Signature as:
- “A thick, very powerful cymbal, with little overtones. Bell sound is clear, loud and extremely penetrating. Perfect for loud situations. (1)
- Very bright, high pitched, penetrating. Tight frequency range, very clean mix. Very pronounced ping, very little build up, very focused. Extreme ride with very strong, clear ping and bell.
Weight extra heavy Volume medium to very loud Stick Sound very pingy Intensity fairly dry Sustain long Bell Character separated, clear, loud”.
- There ya go!! Extra heavy. Extremely penetrating.
- It does have a bit of darkness in there though.
- This beauty looks like what the Power Slave became!
- Hard to find even when they were produced.
- Perfect for medium loud to VERY LOUD settings.
- No issues. Typical surface wear on the finish (mostly on the underside, common on all these Reflectors.) Clean logos. 20 years old and a BEAST!
