      OVERVIEW

      Perfectly suited for forceful playing in aggressive music styles, where wide dynamics are required.

      This Paiste Alpha Rock Ride Cymbal features a brilliant finish with an energetic, full, clear, bright, and strong character. The ride cymbal has a fairly wide range, fairly clean mix, and a pronounced, round, glassy ping over a balanced and controllable wash. Its clear, full, big bell sound is fairly integrated, and well-balanced within the overall cymbal sound.

      Alpha cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well known for their first-class sound and fair prices. The Alpha Series is now available in a Brilliant Finish, once again advancing these trusted qualities.

      The brilliant look is accomplished by skilled craftsmen who hand polish the ride cymbals to a mirror perfect finish in the final production stage. Prior to that, top-notch hi-tech processes give Alpha cymbals their initial shape and strength. They are further enhanced by traditional hand-hammering.

      Paiste Alpha cymbals have become very popular among professional artists, especially in rock and metal. Working with such drummers, Paiste developed new cymbal models to expand the arsenal available for players in these genres.

      Alpha cymbals have developed a strong following in recent years and are today endorsed by numerous working drummers all over the world, such as Jeremy Spencer of Five Finger Death Punch, Jason Sutter with Chris Cornell, Dave Witte of Municipal Waste, Tommy Portimo of Sonata Arctica, and Steven Spence of Black Tide.

        This ride does it all

        By Caveperson

        from Smithfield, NC

        Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Rock Ride Cymbal:

        When shopping around for a bigger ride than my A Custom 22, I noticed this beauty. The bell is icy and cutting. Perfect for metal and expressive styles of music, the body of the cymbal is very pingy, but not harsh. Very warm with a mellow bright undertone. Sweep stick this ride for a big, bold dark crash sound. This is not only a rock ride, but it carries over into metal and other styles as well.

        Awesome ride

        Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Rock Ride Cymbal:

        I got the 24" version. It's a great all-purpose ride. The bell is massive, it's about 7" around, and it's really piercing. It has really nice stick definition, but the wash builds up. It's really heavy, and big, so it's really loud. It's even pretty good to crash on. All around, really nice ride.

        Great Ride

        By JeremyJunior4352

        from Minneapolis MN

        Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Rock Ride Cymbal:

        So, I was looking for a ride that could play rock, yet still carry over well into metal. I tried a bunch of different A custom rides, none of them even come close to this ride. I was going to get the metal one but it was out of stock for awhile and I figured this would be better for playing different styles. The bell has a great sound and is really cutting, and to top it all off the finish is beautiful. Buy this ride.
