Comments about Paiste Signature Full Ride Cymbal:
The Paiste Signature Full Ride is a great cymbal for jazz and fusion and has a beautiful and slightly dark ring to it. It matches many different varieties of other cymbals and complements the other Paiste Signature series cymbals very well. I own a Paiste Signature Full Crash and recently bought the Signature Full Ride and they create a well balanced, expressive mixture that sounds great on recordings. My one qualm is the lack of stick definition and the loss of it in the warm but dark wash the cymbal exudes. The cymbal still sounds great however, and sometimes its nice to have some of the strikes lost in the wash; it can give a mysterious and ambient sound to any style.
