The Eclipse - John Dolmayan's Inspiration — The Mega Power Ride
The Paiste Rude Mega Power Ride cymbal is an extremely loud, cutting ride with an enormous, big, loud, and deep sounding bell. It has a wide sonic range with a clean mix. Playing it yields a heavy response and a very balanced feel. This is the cymbal for a bright, full, warm, deep, somewhat dry, powerful sound. The Paiste Rude Mega Power Ride Cymbal is also known as the Eclipse, and was created in conjunction with System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan.
