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.

Pretty Good Cymbal

By Alex May

from Largo Florida

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Ride Cymbal:

The cymbal itself is extra heavy weight - in fact the heaviest ride Sabian makes! It also combines 3 lathing processes - AAX lathing on the top, AA lathing on the bottom, and hand hammering on the bell. 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.The bell is great. Due to its hand hammered surface, it is piercing, loud, cutting, 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 (about 4 inches across) 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, it seemed 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 quieter playing. If you are looking for a ride with very little wash, defined sticking, and a neutral ping, this is a very good choice for you.

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Ride Cymbal:

When I went to purchase a ride cymbal I triedmany from the same maker but this cymbal was thebest sounding cymbal. Head and shoulders aboveany thing I've heard. Nice bell hand hammeringis a nice touch I find myself using it also now for a crash what a great all around cymbal.

One of the best out there

By Don-yC9SS

from Dallas

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Ride Cymbal:

I have several rides and this is the best, bar none. Very low priced for the quality you get. Few overtones and what there are they dont override the ping and hang on and on and build up. Use it for jazz. Good for brushes too. I have rides that cost a lot more but to my ears this is the best.

This is the greatest ride I have played/heard so far.

By Bob-WKTyF

from Plano, TX

Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Ride Cymbal:

The wait was worth it. The bow has the sound everyone likes, a nice dry bow which is loud enough for unmiked situations, while maintaining the same volume and not building up like some rides; the bell is high, and is everything you could want in a bell, plus being hand-hammered; the edge is very nice, it could possibly make a nice crash. It has few overtones which are great, letting the ping be heard before they take over like some rides do, and they sound nice(nothing you would want to try and muffle up). Its a very good all purpose ride, and its nicely priced for a signature 22" ride. Go for it.
