Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Ride CymbalAt over 8 lbs. it's an extra-heavy model with strong, clear-cutting stick definition.Developed with Neil Peart of Rush, the Sabian Paragon Ride Cymbal 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 full richer tone on the bottom side.

The cymbal itself is extra heavy weight - in fact the heaviest ride Sabian makes! It also combines 3 lathing processes - AAX lathing on the top, AA lathing on the bottom, and hand hammering on the bell. Weighing in at over 8 pounds, the overall sustain of the cymbal is short with a quick decay. The ping is solid, but well defined. While it is not overly bright or dark (it sits right in the middle), it still slices through music with ease. Sticking is very defined, allowing for intricate busy-sticking without too much buildup.
The bell is great. Due to its hand hammered surface, it is piercing, loud, cutting, and, like the bow, well defined. The bell is also integrated, allowing you to hit it without getting a full response from the rest of the cymbal. Also, the size of the bell (about 4 inches across) and the fact that it is raised slightly higher than other rides, makes it easy to hit.
My only problem with this cymbal was that, at times, the ride can sound a bit too metallic and clangy, it seemed anvil-like. Other than that, the ride is more than suitable for rock music, while still maintaining a warm enough tone to be suitable for quieter playing. If you are looking for a ride with very little wash, defined sticking, and a neutral ping, this is a very good choice for you.
