love it

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Ride:

cheapest bronze ride i could find and it sounds great
the bell and body of this sound better than some of the more expensive lines i've listened to
at first i thought is had too much ringing sustain - so i put some small strip gaff tape on the underside which worked ok,for body hits but somehow this muddied the bell pitch
now i use no tape on it and the 22" really sings on our quiet gentle sections
and for the rest of the set it cuts through 2x guitars bass and keys no problem
its also got good tone and clarity for fast patterns
if you play heavy music and don't need elite priced gear and just want quality, value and good tone i would recommend the 22" rock ride
good solid ding from the bell and musical body hits. sounds good with wood or tips, but tips work best. the edge hit is huge and gongy
bullet proof
could be the best value out there?

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Ride:

I needed a new cymbal after I destroyed my 20" Zildjian ZBT and this cymbal blows that one away. Better value and better sound. The sustain was a little too long for my liking but I just slapped some ducttape on it. The bell is sick. Great cymbal for drummers of all skill levels and playing styles.

    Makes me wonder what would a 500.00 ride sound like. For a third of the price, its a great pingy ride

          Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Ride:

          I used this ride for the first time at an outdoor venue. The music was loud ,which is great because it's metal. The bell of the ride was like an ice pick, cutting through guitar volume with ease. The 'ringing' some don't like wasn't even noticed. If you play metal, and need a cutting ride for a STEAL, pick this cymbal up !

          Excellent Ride

          Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Ride:

          This overall, is just one sweet cymbal. I use it in my band and it is clearly heard above the guitars. It also has a nice strong piercing bell. Perfect ping sound, along with nice sustain make it a great value for all users from beginner to pro.

          Awesome cymbal

          By Rvd.sdw

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Ride:

          it is a very good cymbal it is my first ride cymbal. The only problem is that it rings a lot so i put Duck tape on the bottom to stop the ringing it worked. i like it 'cause you can use it for light song heavy songs. i play with my church, and i play to UnderOath at home. Over all worth the money.

          I bought the 22" PST 5 Rock Ride, and am very happy with it. This is the best value for the money that I have ever seen for a rather loud ride cymbal. There is a tad more wash than I like on a ride, but this is not a ping ride after all.In my opinion, Paiste has the best overall value, sound and features for its mid level cymbal line. I can honestly recommend this to any musician that plays louder types of music.ADT

          Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Ride:

          I have the 22" Rock Ride. In a word, this ride is loud! The bell will put a hole in yer momma's head, but the bow has a nice shimmery wash...which literally rings for days. Some may find it a bit tough to control, but for the experienced drummer, it's no problem. Don't duct tape the bottom (I abhor duct tape on anything), let 'er sing. This is high quality, intermediate-level cymbal, and the best in it's price range. Try it, buy it, and fall in love!

          Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Ride:

          I bought this cymbal because I know Paiste has a standard of quality. Don't let the low price fool you, this cymbal is the best I've seen for the price. I was so impressed I'm gonna by the thin crash for my set and continue to invest in Paiste.
