Cymbal Buying Guide at Cascio Interstate Music
This special Ride cymbal was created by Paiste's Sound Development team in collaboration with the legendary drummer Stewart Copeland, who has inspired an entire generation of drummers with his unique playing style as the driving force behind The Police, one of the most influential and groundbreaking rock bands of the past few decades. The introduction of this model 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 cymbal. 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.

No wash to be had from this cymbal. Basically the antithesis of a thin Zildjian K. This is no jazz cymbal. But that's the whole point! A huge part of Stewart Copeland's classic sound can be boiled down to his hihats, snare drum, and ride. By design, his goal was to cut through loud, angry guitars. And he did. A sizable weapon in his arsenal was his cutting ride and bell sound. High and dry, cuts like glass, yet uber musical. This beautiful cymbal is unapologetic. It's clean, crystal clear, and focused. It's heavy, but very responsive under stick. It doesn't "play" heavy. The bell is fantastic, and while explosive, doesn't stray too far from the overall cymbal tone. This is not an overly transferable cymbal. You won't be using this on every song on a cover gig. Unless sound replication authenticity is low on your list of musical values, that is. However, if you're after a high quality, dry, yet musical ping ride. This is for you.
