Overview

The Paiste New Signature Dark Ride delivers a fusion of darkness, energy, projection and brilliance. They have a responsive feel and are extremely controllable with a very wide range and complex, musical mix. Also woody, silvery, spanky ping over crunchy, thriving wash.

Mark I: Tends to be a bit quieter, darker and drier. This manifests itself in the overall sound character and in particular in the bell and ping sound.

Introduction: 2004


"New Signature Class": The elitist concept for this class of cymbals allows Paiste to use ultimate artistic freedom in the creation of cymbal sound. It calls for absolute exclusivity, total individuality, full concentration on the individual cymbal's characteristics and complete freedom from the sonic constraints of a series personality. These are ultimate cymbal creations that defy categorization. They represent the highest state of the art in Paiste cymbal sound and quality.

The "Mark X" Principle: As Paiste creates cymbals of certain sound character and dynamic functionality, they allow themselves the option of creating variations on that basic theme. These variations are then designated "Mark I", "Mark II", and so on. With this principle, they give themselves another release from commonality and thus freedom to explore cymbal sound wherever it may lead.

"Dark Energy": The initial set of Paiste cymbals to populate the "New Signature Class" is designated "Dark Energy". Created as a "fusion" of the fundamental characteristics of "Signature" and "Traditionals", "Dark Energy" cymbals combine depth, darkness, total musicality and complex harmonics with brilliance, richness and projection. In addition, the cymbal's functional range encompasses the sheer impossible combination of ultimate dynamic control and strength in projection.<

Comments about Paiste New Signature Dark Energy Mark I Dry Ride:

you'd think that a cymbal like this wouldn't play so great for metal and hard rock.. well, your wrong! Ive had this cymbal for 3 years now, hasn't lost its sound, cracked or been damaged... and im kinda rough on it! I love the dark sound, goes great with metal! AWESOME CYMBAL totally worth the $$

BEST RIDE CYMBAL EVER!!!

By William Carideo

from danville, Ky

Comments about Paiste New Signature Dark Energy Mark I Dry Ride:

This is the best ride cymbal i have ever used. it is great for anything from calm jazz to crazy death metal. i really needed a new ride cymbal and i thought that i should just buy a cymbal that will last me the rest of my life, and i think i did. it has a really clean sound if u just tap it...great for jazz....but if u like to play rock or metal then you can just hit a little harder and u got a really nice but kinda dark sound that blends in with anything.....great cymbal and i recommend this to any kind of drummer
