Very nice, dynamic ride for any application in lower volume ranges.
Sound Character: Silvery, full, sweet, low. Fairly wide range, complex mix. Soft feel, very responsive. Slightly papery and sparkling stick sound over a foggy wash. Great for Blues, Jazz, Country, and acoustic or vocal oriented music.
Background: Our continuous search for new ways to create cymbal sounds from manually malleable metals has taken us back to the primal and archaic sound energy of traditional CuSn20 bronze. From such alloy the Twenty series is made of and combines the Turkish ancient knowledge with the Swiss precision and our time-honored methods. A symbiosis, a completely new blend of sound character
Innovation: To create cymbals of true and dignified quality for highest demands of professional drummers and percussionists
Alloy: CuSn20, also know as "Traditional Bronze"
Production: Manual craftsmanship exclusively. Hand alloying, hand hammering, hand lathing. Proprietary manufacturing methods
Applications: Medium soft to loud settings. Live and recording. Pop, Blues, Soul, Rock, Jazz, Big Band, R&B, Country, Acoustic Music, percussive settings, classical applications and Latin styles.
Users: Professional drummers, recording artists, studio owners. Sound enthusiasts and collectors.
Sound: Warm, broad, deep, sparkling, dark, oriental, trashy, bright and forceful. Cymbals with a certain raw and untamed sort of a mystical force, yet with the harmony, balance and consistent quality that is a Paiste trademark for decades.

This "Light" ride is lighter in weight and thinner than the standard ride, but it is no quieter. Comparitively, this ride is actually quite loud. It also crashes fairly easily making this a very good crash/ride. In fact, this is a better crash cymbal than ride, in my opinion. I recommend checking this one out at a local music store before ordering, because it isn't for everyone. If you're looking for a very washy crash/ride, this might work for you.
