Overview

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

By The Band

from Warren, Mi

Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Rock Ride Cymbal:

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?

Worth pennies you didn't even spend

By Chip

from Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania

Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Rock Ride Cymbal:

I just bought this cymbal today from my guitar center and it sounds sublime! It has a big yet smooth ping and it's extremely loud. This cymbal will cut through anything and has a bell that will blow you away. If you play hard rock or any kind of loud music, this is the ride you need!

WOW

By lim

from denver, co

Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Rock Ride Cymbal:

i've had the 20" alpha ride for 6 months now and i love it ill admit its got some pretty bad overtones but it cuts through any music like a knife i primarily use mine for blast beats and its got a perfect balance of ping and wash for fast sustained playing

22" rock ride

By Sam

from Iron Mountain, MI

Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Rock Ride Cymbal:

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'.

Great Mid Level Ride

By Winston

from Boston MA

Comments about Paiste Alpha Brilliant Rock Ride Cymbal:

I got this ride a week ago and think it is a pretty good cymbal. I love it for metal and rock but i definitley prefer paiste 2002 cymbals to the alphas. While the alphas are all good cymbals, i think the rides (specifically this one) is the best of the series. I would reccomend it to any semi-pro player on a budget
