A light ping paired with a balanced, cloudy, breathy, and controlled wash.

This 21" Paiste Alpha Groove Ride cymbal features a brilliant finish with a full, warm, and medium-bright character. It has a fairly wide range, and relatively clean, even mix with a nice feel. It's a very comfortable Paiste ride cymbal for multiple applications in moderate music styles.

Alpha cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well known for their first-class sound and fair prices. The Alpha Series is now available in a Brilliant Finish, once again advancing these trusted qualities.

The brilliant look is accomplished by skilled craftsmen who hand polish the cymbals to a mirror perfect finish in the final production stage. Prior to that, top-notch hi-tech processes give Alpha cymbals their initial shape and strength. They are further enhanced by traditional hand-hammering.

Alpha cymbals have become very popular among professional artists, especially in rock and metal. Working with such drummers, Paiste developed new models to expand the arsenal available for players in these genres.

Paiste Alpha cymbals have developed a strong following in recent years and are today endorsed by numerous working drummers all over the world, such as Jeremy Spencer of Five Finger Death Punch, Jason Sutter with Chris Cornell, Dave Witte of Municipal Waste, Tommy Portimo of Sonata Arctica, and Steven Spence of Black Tide.

Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Groove Ride Cymbal:

This seems to fit what I wanna play. I do a little rock and country and Blues................I think it will work for most music
This cymbal has a quality look and finnish.
Very clean design and look.
The best thing about this cymbal is the sound. I have played cymbals that cost twice as much and didnt sound a bit better.

Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Groove Ride Cymbal:

I got this ride as a birthday present last year, and was soooo happy to replace my beginner set brass cymbal. I mainly crashed on it, seeing as how I only had this and a hi hat. I then got a 24" rock ride, so I used this as a crash. Alas, after about 8 months it cracked, probably because I beat the hell out of it, but it did it's job. It's really washy, nice bell, very crash/ride-ish. But, all in all, I liked it.
