Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $200$300

Crafted with a patented bronze alloy developed specifically for superior versatility and tone, the Paiste Signature series is one of the company's flagship products and a favored line amongst their artist roster. The cymbals are shimmering, rich and glassy in sound, and perform exceptionally well in both live and studio environments.

The Dry Heavy Ride is designed for penetrating stick response and minimal wash, and features a strong, separated bell sound. Earlier models have a unique hammering pattern which makes the cymbal slightly more controlled and focused, with a narrower spectrum of overtones.
