Providing the rhythmic beat for some of the best known names in music, Ndugu Chancler worked in combination with Paiste to create a truly stunning Ride symbol named Rosie. Suitable for a wide rnage of musical styles, just what you'd expect from a prolific session drummer, the Masters "rosie" crisp ride is bright, rich and warm with a great stick response thats perfect for studio and live work. This would be a great addition to any symbal set.
Fairly bright, rich, open, warm. Wide range, fairly clean mix. Even, controllable feel with quick response. Crisp, clear stick sound over a rich, warm wash. All-purpose ride cymbal suitable for a broad range of musical styles. Developed in co-operation with session great Ndugu Chancler.
Here's what Paiste have to say about Rosie
This 22“ Crisp Ride was created in collaboration with Ndugu Chancler, whose decades of session work is highly respected worldwide. His recordings include work with Weather Report, Santana, Herbie Hancock, Lionel Richie and one of the most recognizable drum grooves on Michael Jackson’s legendary “Billy Jean”.
The Crisp Ride joins the eclectic series of Artist Inspiration cymbals. In comparison to the „Dark“ cymbals in the Twenty Masters Collection the basic sound color of the Crisp Ride is brighter, while retaining the richness and warmth of the CuSn20 bronze. It is named for the lucent, crispy stick definition over a smooth, controllable wash. The bell sound is clear but discreet and pleasant.
In honor of his mother, Ndugu Chancler named the cymbal „Rosie“, and it carries an illustration of a rose in the artwork below the bell.
The Twenty Masters Collection is an assemblage of exquisite and laboriously hand-manufactured cymbals made of CuSn20 bronze to achieve superior sound ideals in various musical genres. The twelve ride models integrate the experience of the decades in the art of cymbal making with the inspirations of international top drummers
