Paiste's Description: Light Ride
Review: A nice sounding dark, dry ride for jazz or some blues. There is little sustain, and sticking is dry. Good for low to medium-low volume situations. The bell isn't very usable, but a lite "ding" can be produced when hit. Can be lightly crashed (as jazz players do, not as Travis Barker does) with some success. Mine is the old style with the etched "Paiste" logo. This has deep hammer marks, and superb lathing. Paiste's site describes the weight as "Thin", and boy is it ever! 2671 grams. I don't even play a style of music that I could use this with, but I'd be willing to because of this beautiful sounding cymbal! All in all, an extremely nice ride for specific situations.
