- Holy hell! Really?
- I have never seen this Paiste.
- The younger brother of the seldom-seen 20”.
- Debut year for the Signature - Very Rare 1989 Paiste Signature 18” MELLOW Ride in overall CLEAN condition. I bet this cymbal was at the NAMM booth that year and that’s about it. I have not seen another in this size.
- 1686 grams. Take a look at the early Signature craftsmanship - telltale EARLY SIGNATURE Hammering.
- Inimitable CLEAN and now famous crisp sounding Paiste Signature tone. This is from the first year Paiste showed off their new proprietary B15 alloy. Everyone was floored by this new series in 1989, and outside of the 2002, this became Paiste’s most recognizable series over the last 30 years.
- Very Dark for a Paiste Sig, much more controlled than larger sized Signatures. Strong and focused bell - especially for an 18” size.
- Focused, clean, responsive, mellow, darker leanings, lower pitched and never seen.
- Mellowed over three decades. Typical light surface wear. No issues. Overall clean.
- If you want a tone no one else has, here you are…
