Designed with the Rush drummer!

At over 8 lbs. it's an extra-heavy model with strong, clear-cutting stick definition.

Developed with Neil Peart of Rush, the Sabian Paragon Ride Cymbal blends 2 styles of lathing for a very balanced cymbal tone. Pinpoint lathing creates a narrower groove for a fast, lively response on the top, while the traditional AA lathing creates a wider groove for a full richer tone on the bottom side.

    I bought this cymbal a little over 6 months ago and have not looked back since. It is a little expensive, but is worth every penny. I like to keep my playing and abilities as well rounded as possible. This ride can be used in almost any application. I have used it while playing everything from death metal to fusion. When played near the outside edge, it sounds great when crashed with the shoulder of the stick. When played closer to the center, or even near to the bell, this cymbal produces a great ping that can be heard through loud guitars, but is not the typical tacky sound of such a heavy cymbal. The bell of the cymbal is my favorite part. The sound is warm and yet loud. Latin ride patterns sound awesome with this cymbal. When used live, Paragons looks amazing under lights. The only downside I have experienced with this cymbal up to this point is that the logo absolutely must be avoided when cleaning. Other than that, it is amazing. I have no desire to change to a different ride. I have way too many cymbals, and this one will stay on my kit for a long time, no matter what genre of music I am playing or what band I am playing with. Neil Peart and Sabian really created something special with this ride. It's awesome!

  • A good Rock cymbal

    As reviewed by lpdrummer on 1/8/2007

    This cymbal is extra heavy weight - weighing in at over 8 pounds, the overall sustain of the cymbal is short with a quick decay. The ping is solid, but well defined. While it is not overly bright or dark (it sits right in the middle), it still slices through music with ease. Sticking is very defined, allowing for intricate busy-sticking without too much buildup. Due to its hand hammered surface, the bell is piercing, loud, and like the bow, well defined. The bell is also integrated, allowing you to hit it without getting a full response from the rest of the cymbal. Also, the size of the bell and the fact that it is raised slightly higher than other rides, makes it easy to hit. My only problem with this cymbal was that, at times, the ride can sound a bit too metallic and clangy - almost anvil-like. Other than that, the ride is more than suitable for rock music, while still maintaining a warm enough tone to be suitable for quiter playing.

  • Paragon ride

    As reviewed by Drummer4Life on 3/12/2007

    this cymbal has everything you would want from a ride and more. I have had this ride for about 2 months now and have had no promblem. The sound is very clear but not overly loud. The hand hammered bell is perfect, and overall this cymbal is great for any occasion. Sabian rules!
