The 20" Alpha Full Ride has a full, medium, bright, warm sound. Medium range, clean mix. Even, balanced feel. A perfect combination of a clear ping with a supporting shimmering wash. A well-rounded ride cymbal for multipurpose use in a wide range of musical applications.
Alpha Cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Since then, the Alpha Series has been highly successful on an international scale. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well-known for their first-class sound and fair prices. In 2006, Paiste presented a completely revamped Alpha, which advanced these trusted qualities and took Alpha cymbals to a new level.
In recent years, Paiste has heavily invested in perfecting its high-tech processes, seeking to faithfully reproduce the principles of Swiss hand craftsmanship in its modern production facility in Germany. The updated Alpha ride cymbals are manufactured using this topnotch technology. They are then enhanced using traditional hand hammering. The combination of hi-tech and traditional methods brings about never before realized quality levels in a highly efficient production environment. Alpha cymbals thus fulfill high demands in quality and function while taking into account the financial realities of today's active drummers.
Paiste designed the updated Alpha series specifically with the global demands of today's music in mind. Global music increasingly combines stylistic and cultural backgrounds into new musical forms, requiring cymbals with wider application range. By applying modern design concepts to the individual models including the Alpha Full Ride, Paiste has met these requirements convincingly. The assortment offers a wide choice of models and sizes, and covers a wide range of music styles. It allows the drummer an optimal variety of sounds in the cymbal set. Despite all of these improvements, the company is offering the new Alpha cymbals at unchanged retail prices.

Comments about Paiste Alpha Full Ride Cymbal:
I've got the brand new redesigned full ride which looks great. I have found this cymbal to be a little higher pitched so I had to get used to. The ping is bright and clear. The bell is a little too integrated than I like but it is nice. I gave this ride 5 stars because of value if you're like me you want Signatures but lack the funds. This is a good all around ride for different styles and it also records very well.
