Overview

This special Ride cymbal is the result of a collaboration between Paiste and Stewart Copeland, who inspired an entire generation of drummers with his unique playing style as the driving force behind The Police. The introduction of this ride cymbal coincides with the celebrated world-wide reunion tour of The Police.

The 22" Blue Bell Ride is based on the Signature 22" Dark Metal Ride, and was modified according to Stewart Copeland's exacting specifications. In the process, this development reintroduces Paiste's unique ColorSound coating, as the cymbal is coated partially blue on top and fully on the bottom.

The 22" Blue Bell Ride features a dry, slightly dark, raw and melodic sound. Its dominant characteristics include a clear, glassy ping and a distinctive strong, deep bell, in accordance with Stewart Copeland's Ride playing technique within the context of the music of The Police. As a tribute to Stewart's collaborative effort in the creation of this unique cymbal, the label "The Rhythmatist" and Stewart Copeland's "Rider" logo appear in conjunction with the model designation on the ride cymbal. Paiste's signature cymbals are entirely made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century. ColorSound is a proprietary coating for cymbals developed by Paiste in the 1980s, which optimizes the effect of a coating on cymbal sound and is extremely durable.

Comments about Paiste Stewart Copeland Signature Blue Bell Ride:

This ride is amazing I picked this out of a bunch of different rides. The bell is the best part is the bell. It big high and piercing. Plus you can just smack it with the side of your stick to get a real piercing noise.

Kinda Disappointed

By Brian

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Paiste Stewart Copeland Signature Blue Bell Ride:

I had heard several hours of praising from a bunch of my drumming friends about this cymbal, but I always thought my Meinl 20" MB10 Bell Blast ride was pretty awesome. So I went to try it out at my local GC. I was somewhat disappointed by the sound. It had a great bow sound, and was really good crashed. The bell (which it mainly advertised) is just...okay. It's definitely loud, but it's not as "pingy" as my ride, or as I would prefer. I can see why some people would like it, but otherwise not for hard rock or metal in my opinion. And on a final note; why is it called the Blue Bell ride when the whole cymbal is blue EXCEPT the bell?
