A handmade cymbal with a versatile sound is a great addition to any drum rig. The Paiste Dark Energy series have a deep tone that responds equally well to sticks, mallets or brushes.
This 24" Deep Ride has a full, rich tone which is great for both studio and live sessions. It has a medium weight and at 24" it's nice and warm with great sustain.
Here's what Paiste have to say
Masters started out as an assemblage of twelve rides - exquisite and laboriously hand-manufactured cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres. In 2014, three crashes and two hats join the series to expand the unique Masters sound atmosphere to additional cymbal types. Masters integrate the experience of the decades long art of cymbal making with the inspirations of international top drummers.
