Paiste first pioneered this featured production process with our innovative Reflector Cymbals back in the 1980's. Unlike modern high speed buffing methods, Paiste Reflector Cymbals employ a proprietary surface treatment technique that generates a smooth, luminous, shimmering finish - without producing high levels of heat, which can substantially alter the natural condition of the bronze metal and dampen the cymbal sound.
Fairly dark, full, controlled, glassy, shimmering. Fairly wide range, clean mix. Very comfortable feel with a clear, full ping over a large, deep harmonic wash. This ride cymbal is extremely well suited for intricate stick work that calls for a strong bell in all types of Rock based music. Developed in co-operation with the legendary "Iron Maiden" drummer Nicko McBrain.
Sizes: 22" Weight: heavy Volume: medium to very loud Stick Sound: full, glassy Intensity: lively Sustain: long Bell Character: strong, deep, melodious
