2002 22" Heavy Ride & Paiste 2002 22" Power Ride Comparison
Paiste's Description: <<< - >>>
Review: This is one of my all-time favorite rides. It has a warm shimmer, and nice stick definition. I once had a current 2002 22" Power Ride that I did a side by side comparison with, as they were roughly the same weights. To me, the Power Ride seemed a bit harsh in comparison to the warmth of the Heavy Ride. The Power Ride did have more definition though.
I have used this ride in a Rock band, as well as another band that played a plethora of material, from Elton John to the Rolling Stones, and Adele. I think it handled the job very well. I definitely think this ride is underrated, and I think I can recommend it.
