Perfectly suited for forceful playing in aggressive music styles, where wide dynamics are required.

This Paiste Alpha Rock Ride Cymbal features a brilliant finish with an energetic, full, clear, bright, and strong character. The ride cymbal has a fairly wide range, fairly clean mix, and a pronounced, round, glassy ping over a balanced and controllable wash. Its clear, full, big bell sound is fairly integrated, and well-balanced within the overall cymbal sound.

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 ride 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.

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

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.

  • 22" rock ride

    As reviewed by Sam on 6/8/2010

    I myself prefer a dryer and more articulate ride, however, I love this ride. it's nice an loud, but not overbearingly loud and has a nice bell. it does have a long sustain, which I'm not too fond of, but it's perfect if you're in a band that never has a pause in their songs. This ride is great if you want a good ride for rock or metal, and are too light on cash to get a 2002 ride or a signature ride. it's a great ride, but it's not the best ride for just groovin'.

  • 22" Rock Ride

    As reviewed by The Band on 5/2/2012

    I've tried every cymbal brand and all the top series. Paiste is by far the best. They're durable the sound is great. The only "flaw" with this cymbal is that it is super loud. The ride is a darkish ping sound that you won't get from any other brand. A Custom vs. Alpha's = Alpah winning. The cymbals are that good. Plus, this cymbal is great for crashing on. And did I mention it's loud?
