This is a great ride! Believe me. Sure it isnt akin to that of a 2002 model or a signature reflector, but hell it works great for the price!It sounds good and is quite loud and what i am most pleased with is the bell on it. The bell is loud, piercing and integrated. Simply it sounds amazing and is a good size so it is an easier target to hit.Also dont be fooled by the picture of it. It has a brilliant finish. Really nice!


sounds awesome!!!!

This is a great deal. It sounds really awesome! I have Sabian splash and crash and this fits well and a Tama drum set.

This is possibly one of the best ride cymbals I have ever heard! I recommend it to anybody. The tone is sharp and would work in any situation.

I Got This Ride About A Month Ago From Guitar Center, This Is A Really Nice Ride! Its Not To Clanky. It's Really Warm When Played Lighty, But It's Really Washy, I Like To Play Metal, So I Want It To "Ping" And It Sounds Like More Of A Jazz Cymbal.

i love this cymbal, it has a really good look to it, it sounds amazing too. i use nylon tips which put out a really cutting pingy sound which is perfect for my music that i play.

This is hands down the ABSOLUTE best ride you will find in this price range!!! Possibly one of the best rides PERIOD. It has a nice ping over washy undertones, the bell sounds like a cowbell if you hit with the shaft of the stick, and it's pretty good for crashing, especially on big, song-finishing, final notes.


One heck of a deal!!

I play this ride along with Sabian Vault Crashes, and Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hihats, and I continue to get compliments on my ride alone! I used this bad boy in the studio, the bell has such an awesome PING and this sucker is loud!! The only thing is, don't expect a ping ride if you buy this. This cymbal is loud, and rings out a lot, like a crash. However, this is definitely one of the best rides I've heard, and you can't beat the price.

I use this ride along with Zildjian A Custom hihats and Sabian Vault Crashes, and I couldn't be any happier with the sound of this ride. Every time I have recorded with this ride (2 demos, and 1 EP), producers asked me "is that an A custom or Z custom ride?" and I said, "No it's actually a paiste 201 ride. Do yourself a favor and buy this ride.


This thing is best in its range

I started playing drums about 5 years ago, a year into playing I needed a ride, so i purchased this . It has lasted me 4 years so far, and if it has survived the first 2 or 3 years of playing, it can survive anything. This ride hasn't developed and signs of cracks, chips or anythinggg in the 4 years ive been playing it. It sounds great for the price also. defnt suggest getting it for the value and quality


if your on a budget. get this

for the price you pay for this cymbal, its incredible. price to performance is far better than that of a 2002 or a zildjian K. bell has a nice ping in my opinion. if you need a cheap ride, this is a great choice



By gdrummer21

this cymbal is okay. i just bought it because i have been using a solar by sabian ride for a long time and i needed something else, but when i compared the sound of the solar and the paiste, i concluded that they sound really close. i was sort of dissapointed in the sound. i would say you should save your money and purchase a paiste signature dry ride.
