Paiste 20" Sound Formula Dry Ride Late 1990s

Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $150$225

Featuring a brighter, more contemporary sound pallette, the Sound Formula series utilizes the same proprietary alloy as the flagship Signature models. In 1994 the series underwent a substantial redesign, giving the cymbals more pronounced lathing and hammer patterns similar to the Signature series, which absorbed the Sound Formula series into its ranks in 1999.

The 20" Dry Ride is dark, precise and controlled, with a strong bell and moderate wash.

*Note: the cymbal pictured has been drilled for aftermarket rivets
