This special Ride was created by Paiste’s Sound Development team in collaboration with Nicko McBrain, who has awed drummers the world over for more than two decades with his relentless playing style in the cult metal band “Iron Maiden”, one of the most original and influential heavy metal bands in music history.
The Reflector Bell Ride is reminiscent of the Sound Creation Bell Ride, which Nicko McBrain used throughout the 1980’s. The original concept was updated according to his current specifications and executed in the Signature Series, utilizing Paiste’s unique Reflector finish.
The Reflector Bell Ride features a full, fairly dark, controlled, glassy and shimmering sound character, a clear full ping over a large, deep harmonic wash, and a dominant, strong bell, making it extremely well suited for the intricate ride stick work that is one of the hallmarks of Nicko McBrain’s playing style within the context of the music of Iron Maiden. As a tribute to Nicko’s collaborative effort in the creation of this unique cymbal, the label “Powerslave” and a rendition of Iron Maiden’s mascot, Eddie, have been placed on the 22" version of the cymbal.
Signature cymbals are entirely made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century. Reflector is a trade-marked, proprietary surface treatment technology that was developed by Paiste in the 1980s to create cymbals with a brilliant finish that is applied entirely by hand, thus avoiding the adverse effects of polishing agents and buffing heat.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.
