  • Here’s an insanely great sounding Paiste - a truly Hand Hammered 22” that was the first Paiste’s modern foray in Hand Hammering. 

  • I give you….The 22” LIGHT Ride! A legend in its own time! Why?  Because while the Twenty Series ran fairly heavy, this 22” Light has a great light airiness to it that was a standout in the series.   

  • This big 22" Light was fairly hard to find even when Paiste DID produce this beauty. This 22" has a really interesting profile too-the bell rises up like a K Constantinople Hi Bell.

  • Paiste described this cymbal as:
    "Silvery, full, sweet, low. Fairly wide range, complex mix. Soft feel, very responsive. Slightly papery and sparkling stick sound over a foggy wash. Very nice, dynamic ride for any application in lower volume ranges, including Blues, Jazz, Country, and acoustic or vocal oriented music."

  • And then they freakin' went and pulled it from the catalog! Bastards!

  • With a weight of 2736 grams this glorious 22" plays like a GORGEOUS Light Ride. Imagine that! 

  • The tone is wonderfully warm, dark, surprisingly COMPLEX (for a Paiste, because it's actually Hand Hammered) organic and STILL has that inimitable CLEAN Paiste vibe to it. 

  • And being the LIGHTER 22" of the Paiste Twenty series, this cymbal carries a luscious rumbling wash underneath that stick attack. The pitch is medium low.

  • AND YES, it's crashable.

  • This is phenomenal sounding Light Ride. GUARANTEED!!!

  • And it's rife with all that HAND HAMMERED LOVE and aged and mellowed a decade.

  • Very clean!  No issues. Strong logos. Stunning! Playable.  Collectible. Lovable.
