Description

Alpha

  • A unique Flatride, very clear and defined stick with soft, controlled overtones at any playing volume. Works very well with the Crystal_Crash. (2)
  • Fairly dark, warm. Wide range, fairly clean mix. Even, balanced feel. Very defined, silvery woody ping over quiet, shimmering wash. A fairly strong flat ride sound for medium to lower volume.

  • Silky, dry, warm, silvery. Fairly wide range, clean mix. Even, balanced feel. Very defined, crystal-like, ping over controlled, misty, shimmering wash. A focused, rich sounding flat ride for all kinds of musical settings from jazz and blues to pop.
    Weight medium Volume very low to medium Stick Sound silky, silvery Intensity dry, controlled Sustain short (5)

Signature

  • Prominent stick definition with very little build-up, even when played forcefully. A clear, sweet ping with quiet wash, excellent for low to medium volume situations. (2)
  • Bright, warm, sweet, silvery. Narrow range, clean mix. Very controllable with excellent, woody stick definition, very little build up. Overall quiet, very articulate ride with surprising projection.
    Weight medium Volume soft to medium Stick Sound fairly pronounced Intensity dry Sustain short (4)

Sound Formula

  • This Flat Ride has characteristics reminiscent of both 2002 and Signature. It contains warmth, a silvery ping and good projection. A nice, alternate ride sound. (2)

2002

  • A cymbal with no bell so that overtones do not build up and absorb the ride beats. The ping is very definite and yet there is just a touch of sizzle to the sound. (1)
  • A warm, mellow ride with a sweet ping and quiet wash. Due to missing bell, it will not build up even when played forcefully. Projects well. (2)
  • Warm, mellow, sweet. Fairly narrow range, clean mix. Soft, responsive feel, very controllable. Silvery ping over warm, mellow, controlled wash. A definitive classic flatride sound.
    Weight medium thin Volume soft to medium Stick Sound fairly pronounced Intensity dry Sustain short (4)
