OVERVIEW

A focused, rich sounding flat ride for all kinds of musical settings from jazz and blues to pop.

The 20" Alpha Flat Ride Cymbal has a silky, dry, warm, silvery sound. Fairly wide range, clean mix. Even, balanced feel. Very defined, crystal-like, ping over controlled, misty, shimmering wash. A focused, rich sounding flat ride cymbal for all kinds of musical settings from jazz and blues to pop.

Alpha Cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Since then, the Alpha Series has been highly successful on an international scale. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well-known for their first-class sound and fair prices. In 2006, Paiste presented a completely revamped Alpha, which advanced these trusted qualities and took Alpha cymbals to a new level.

In recent years, Paiste has invested heavily into the perfection of its high-tech processes, seeking to faithfully reproduce the principles of Swiss hand craftsmanship in its modern production facility in Germany. The updated Alpha cymbals are manufactured using this top-notch technology. They are then enhanced using traditional hand hammering. The combination of hi-tech and traditional methods brings about never before realized quality levels in a highly efficient production environment. Alpha cymbals thus fulfill high demands in quality and function while taking into account the financial realities of today's active drummers.

Paiste designed the updated Alpha series specifically with the global demands of today's music in mind. Global music increasingly combines stylistic and cultural backgrounds into new musical forms, requiring cymbals with wider application range. By applying modern design concepts to the individual models, Paiste has met these requirements convincingly. The assortment offers a wide choice of models and sizes, and covers a wide range of music styles. It allows the drummer an optimal variety of sounds in the cymbal set. Despite all of these improvements, the company is offering the new Alpha cymbals at unchanged retail prices.

Surprising and amazing

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I'm an experienced drummer who was going through a bit of a dilemma trying to find the sound i wanted for my ride. However, a friend recommended I try this one out and I was absolutely shocked at the quality and sound this cymbal delivered. Granted I won't be sticking with this ride forever (I tend to change my mind a lot), for paying less than $200 this ride sounds great and feels great. Very dark and mellow "crash" qualities, and feathery, light, silvery ride qualities. Just enough stick definition and a whole ton of NICE wash that doesn't ever overpower the ping.
