Loud, piercing bell.
Cutting, variable ride cymbal with distinct playing zones for articulate playing in louder settings.

The newly developed model is loosely based on the original Signature Dry Dark Ride, with its characteristic, pronounced hammer marks on an earthy dark surface, being the result of intense heat treatment. The outer perimeter and the bell of the cymbal are then lathed using the unique Reflector finish.

The Vir2osity 20″ Duo Ride executes Carl’s exclusive ideas for a variable ride cymbal with distinct playing zones. In general, this heavy cymbal features a fairly raw, earthy, complex wash that’s very tight and controlled. The overall glassy stick sound tends towards a drier, more raw and wooden note in the un-lathed zone, while the lathed zone presents a livelier, crisper and richer ping. The bell is well separated and decidedly loud and piercing.

As a tribute to Carl’s inspiration, the label – Vir2osity – and a rendition of Carl’s personal emblem have been placed on the cymbal.

Signature Series cymbals are made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.

Artist Inspiration cymbals are created by Paiste featuring Artists’ uncompromising sound ideas and visual concepts.

“This is the one. Covers the most demanding players.” – Carl Palmer
