From the PAISTE Twenty Masters Collection comes the 20” Dark Dry Ride Cymbal, redefining the words dark and dry, is as earthy as it looks. For when precision, dynamics and great sound are your standards!
The PAISTE Twenty Masters 20” Dark Dry Ride Cymbal begins with dark and dry but we can continue the description, calling this wonderful ride cymbal (also available in the 21” size) rich, silky and strong with a very useful medium range and a fairly complex mix. And take another look at the picture. It’s gorgeous!
With a very controllable, dry feel, and a silvery ping over a rather short sustained and dusty wash, The Twenty Masters 20” Dark Dry Ride is ideally suited for articulated and precise playing in most musical styles such as R&B, Funk, moody Rock, Pop and Country.
