From the PAISTE Twenty Masters Collection comes the 20” Dark Crash Ride Cymbal! One of the very finest crash ride cymbals ever forged!

The amazing 20” Dark Crash Ride Cymbal from the PAISTE Twenty Masters Collection is described as yes, dark, but also as a bit trashy, papery and low. It has a wide range, a complex and moody mix with a soft and buttery feel and a very wobbly and vibrant response. More features:

• Weight: very thin

• Volume: very low to medium loud

• Stick Sound: brittle, misty, papery

• Intensity: very lively

• Sustain: medium

• Bell Character: integrated, subtle

The PAISTE Twenty Masters 20” Dark Crash Ride gives you a fairly well-defined stick sound over a dark and cloudy wash. It is perfectly suited for lower-volume musical settings such as blues, jazz, cabaret, folk-rock and acoustic styles. For drummers who keep their set-up very simple with a single crash ride cymbal, this is a perfect choice. It is also very useful for percussive use and classical mallet application.

New in 2011, the PAISTE Twenty Masters Collection is an assemblage of exquisite and laboriously hand-manufactured cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres. The Twenty Masters ride cymbal models bring together the experience of the decades long art of cymbal making with the inspirations of international top drummers. Features include:

• The Alloy: CuSn20, also known as “Traditional Bronze”. These cymbals not only sound amazing but their hand-hammered and lathed appearance gives them a “Fine Art” appearance, as well. The cymbalsmiths craft is easy to see. These cymbals are works of art.

• Applications: Low to loud settings, live and recording Jazz, Blues, R&B, Funk, Pop and Country.

• The Sound: Warm, full, rich, deep, broad. A wide variety of sound concepts from dark to bright, dry to sustaining, pronounced to washy, smooth to strong. Each cymbal has its very own sound character that has to be experienced.

The Dark Rides, available in 20" and the deeper-pitched 22", meet the highest requirements of drummers that seek vintage and timeless sound. Their dark-smokey vibe and incredibly soft feel perfectly suit dynamic playing in quiet to medium-loud combos. The 20" Dark Crash Ride is slightly lighter, and provides a bit more wash but features the same vintage-earthy timbre as the Dark Ride.
