The Signature Groove 24″ Swish Ride was created in collaboration with the prolific John JR Robinson, who kicked off his career via appearances with Chaka Khan’s Rufus and the Quincy Jones / Michael Jackson project Off the Wall in the late 1970s and went on to become one of the most recorded session and studio drummers in history, along the way developing his signature groove and inimitable big sound.

The newly developed model was conceived by JR as a complimentary ride cymbal to his Masters 24″ Deep Ride. It is based on a variation of the traditional Chinese style cymbal shape commonly referred to as Swish, and executed utilising 2002 Alloy with its energetic and brilliant character.

The Signature Groove 24″ Swish Ride is a clearly large cymbal with immense sound capacity and an extensive range of dynamics, being fully controllable at various volume levels. It features an earthy ping over an exotic and energetic wash and is capable of swelling, trash infused crashes for dramatic accents.

As a tribute to JR’s inspiration, the label Signature Groove and the musical notation of the famous JR drum intro to Michael Jackson’s Rock with You have been placed on the cymbal.

2002 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 24″ Swish Ride is the perfect complementary ride to my setup. I use it directly to the right of my 24″ Deep Ride. It has all the characteristics for today’s music.” – John “JR” Robinson
