    Default New Ride Cymbal ordered (after weeks of research)

    After weeks of researching, listening to, and pricing, I've finally settled on a new ride cymbal.

    It's the 22" Sabian Paragon Ride. Beautiful and sounds just what I was looking for. I'm primarily a metal player but, I actually like a brighter tone than the darker ones on the HH Power Bell and most of the Meinl cymbals.

    Plus, got a killer deal on it brand new. Can't wait for it to get it in. (being shipped from a drum store in Canada)

    Plus the Paragon Chinas and splash cymbals sound great too.

    awesome!!! for a while, I was looking at the AAX Stadium Ride, then the HH Rock Ride, the Meinl Serpent Ride, then lastly the Paiste Blue Bell Ride.....most of those were well out of my price range....this is still a versatile ride and I can go from extreme metal to some jazzier stuff when needed.

    so after setting up the Paragon ride...it's a total beast. I just went and ordered the 19" Paragon China.

    time to start upgrading cymbals.
