Neil's live setup!
The Sabian Neil Peart Paragon cymbal set puts together everything Peart uses live.
Includes 2 - 16" crashes, 18" and 20" crashes, 8" and 10" splashes, 22" ride, 19" and 20" Chinas, 13" and 14" hi-hats. Includes ATA-style flight case.
Developed with Neil Peart of Rush, the Paragon series blends 2 styles of lathing for a very balanced cymbal tone. Pinpoint lathing creates a narrower groove for a fast, lively response on the top, while the traditional AA lathing creates a wider groove for a fuller, richer tone on the bottom side.

cymbals are a matter of taste and these taste sweet to me.But then again I play in a real rock band with other players.I didn't just take them home put them on my kit hit them and hit them again with only myself.I put them in the situation they were meant to be in live music with guitars and they shined.First off lesson one for all who call them crap,signature lines are made for the player whose name is one it.look at neil pearts music and where he plays.that is what their made for,but luckily they are very versitale for smaller gigs like clubs,bars,etc.when alone play them right,learn them wake your neighbors their made for hard hitters and they will grow on you and impress you.oh by the way don't think because you buy a set of signatures cymbals that you will sound or play as good as the persons who name is on it,too many people found that out when they bought the paiste 24" ride and 15" soundedge hi hats and tried to sound like john bonham only to find out they couldn't then blamed the cymbals.These cymbals deliver the goods and are extremely durable.

Being a Rush nut for the past 17 years and a fan of Neil Peart, when I read about Peart coming out with a line of cymbals I couldn't wait to hear them. What a disappointment they are in person. First of all they are not in Sabian's brilliant finish. Second and most importantly... they sound cheap. The ride is flat, my old paiste 505 sounded nicer. The sound of the crashes are too thin and the tones are just not there. Wuhan makes a better sounding china cymbal far cheaper. About the only thing I liked was the splash. Walked out with out buying a single one.I know different cymbals sound different when recored and when heard live on a big pa system, but the Paragon line just doesn't live up to the hype when heard up close. Too bad.

These cymbals kick ass all I have is the 16" crash and i love it i cant wait till i can afford the whole set sucks being poor and getting used shit but i got the used Sabian Paragon Neil Peart 16" Crash USED and it has no dents in it (still doesnt after ive been using it) it has an amazing resonance it keeps going very lightly barely noticable but that little bit lets for good multiple crashing without too much tingyness I absolutely love these cymbals and one day I will own a whole kit.
The paragon cymbals are incredibly innovative. Blending the lathing styles and the hammering, especially on the two different chinas creates some extremely RUSH cymbal sounds.
What a wonderful cymbal set! Everything you need is here. I wouldn't change a thing! (What would be nice is the rest of Peart's set!! I can dream, can't I?!). I love the way they sound on stage (both used by Neil and by others, including myself), the way they feel, and the great pricing- ABSOLUTLEY fabulous! If you like to play, and love cymbals... BUY THESE!!!
As a big fan of neil peart, i bought these cymabls thinking they would sound like the real rush experience. that was a bit naive of me, because no one can sound like neil peart. (duh)I like the sound of them, but they are no worth two thousand dollars.I wouldnt reccomend these to anyone that isnt in a rush cover band, or just a neil peart fanatic.Besides, the common "jammer" cant afford the cymbals AND the stands.
first i have to start with the hi hats sweet! great "chick" sound and they are just amazing the splash i must say is the best on the market no doubt the crashes are really tough if you are a hard hitter these are for you the chinas, now im not a big china cymbal person but i find my self really using these a lot they sound outstanding. now the ride up there at the top. but now these cymbals awesome dont get me wrong but they arnt for jazz as much as i love these they just dont have the sound for jazz, but hey they were designed by neil peart drummer for a rock band. but i have to say worth every penny i put into them. and if u dont want the whole set get at least the splash its incredible
I recently went to a rush concert in Saratoga and hearing these cymbals played live I'm convinced that they're the best money can buy... Only the best for Neil Pert the king of all drummers!
recommend these cymbals to anyone who wants permanent cymbals that have excellent sound, neil peart made the rite move changing to sabian, hes the worlds best drummer by far
they don't sound that full to me. Maybe being more of a hard rock drummer it just wasn't a warm enough sound for me. They sound thin and there are too many highs. But they would probably be perfect if you were in a Rush cover band
I wish that I owned them but I dont have all that money! After listening to how they sound in rush's music I will buy them one day~
I wouldn't expect anything less from Sabian and Neil. I received this set for Christmas and just love it. The cymbals mix the best of the Sabian line up from AA to HHX. They incorporate the differnt bells and lathing techniques of the differnt series. This is what i have been waiting for. I have always wanted to add a little of the warmth of an HHX with the brightness of a AAX and now they have done it. It is a little on the pricey side but you would spend alot more trying to buy each cymbal individually. With this kit you really don't need another cymbal. Unless your like Mike Portnoy and make a hideous set like his Siamese Dream Kit.
