OVERVIEW

Very comfortable ride cymbal for moderate applications in multiple music styles.

The Alpha Groove Rides have a full, warm, strong sound. Fairly wide range, relatively clean, even mix with a nice feel. An open ping paired with a balanced, sweet, breathy and dark wash. Very comfortable ride cymbal for moderate applications in multiple music styles.

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 including the Alpha Groove Ride, 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.

Great value and awesome sound

By Zendrummer

Comments about Paiste Alpha Groove Ride Cymbal:

This ride is built like a tank. Get a good heavy stand to anchor this thing down. Played soft, hard, on the bell or as a crash ride this cymbal sounds excellent. The heavy build of this ride makes it perfect for fast play or jazz swing rythms. The bell sound can be as strong or soft as you want it to be. This cymbal is extremely versatile and probably one of the best available for the price.

Sweet

Comments about Paiste Alpha Groove Ride Cymbal:

I got this 21" ride right after Christmas, and i love it!! it has an awesome sound for jazz, but can also meat up to a rock sound. the only thing is that these Alpha cymbals get finger prints on them easily. Also, it can get just a little bit washy, but if you get a perfect amount of duct tape on it, that can completely fix it.

Nice doodz

By Drumstick135

Comments about Paiste Alpha Groove Ride Cymbal:

Wow I have had this for about 2 months, and I've had it in multiple environments; it doesn't disappoint. It has a great ping sound, especially with a small tipped stick. The thing that I really like about it is that it is very versitle. It can light up in a rock environment, while it can be subtle and trashy in a jazz placement. It has just a little bit too much wash however, but can be easily fixed with some duct tape. And finally the bell: its not too loud, but not too soft either. really nice balance. Overall, very much worth the money.
