From the PAISTE Twenty Masters Collection comes the 20" Dark Ride Cymbal! Ride cymbals don’t get any classier than this!
The sound character of the PAISTE Twenty Masters 20” Dark Ride Cymbal is warm, smoky, breathy, with a fairly wide range and a complex mix. A soft feel with a quick response. Very crashable but controllable with a peppery stick sound over a dark layered oriental, smoky wash. It is a sophisticated ride cymbal that can easily be used in a small jazz club setting and can also flourish in other styles such as pop, cabaret, blues or country music.
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 Dark Rides, available in 20" and 22", meet the highest requirements of Jazz 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.

Comments about Paiste “Twenty” Masters Collection 20” Dark Ride Cymbal:
Paiste has created one of the most amazing jazz cymbals in the Sweet Ride. It has just the right balance of dark toned wash, that responds instantly to changes in stick strikes. The stick is well defined and has a moderate ping to it that yields a brighter and somewhat thicker stick ping, perfect for jazz. I have played K Con's and Isty AGOP's Mel Lewis, of all sizes. I find those to have the dark wash right but the stick sound is kind of dull, muted and muddy. This Paiste is Baby Bear - just right. The Sweet Ride is airy, and musical, it harmonizes with both the piano and acoustic bass better than any ride I've used in this setting. A must have cymbal for any serious jazz drummer. Oh and if things get heavier into a Tony Williams Lifetime mood, this cymbal has the volume to be heard without shouting or straining. It crashes nicely and recovers so well it will stun you. The first time I played this cymbal, I hypnotically explored its qualities for over an hour, and could not believe how much versatility and the broad musical characteristics were packed into one cymbal. I cannot say it does a single thing poorly.
