    Default Paiste Big Beats addition?

    Hey all, newbie drummer here. I currently have an 18, 20 and 22 Big Beat with 15" hats. I'm looking for a new ride that'll give me a different sound, but will play nicely with my other cymbals. I'd like to stay with Paiste, but everything from Istanbul Agop sounds amazing. I realize it's not a lot of info to go on, but i'd love to hear any suggestions from Paiste people, especially if you've had some experience with Big Beats. I play everything from classic rock, Americana to stoner rock. I do love the defined stick sound of a dry, jazzy ride though. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I've never been a fan of Paiste cymbals. They just sound too tinty to me. Sorry I can't help but welcome to DrumChat and maybe some of the others can weigh in.

    I'm in Ottawa, so we have Dave's, which is fantastic. When things get back to normal i'll be able to walk in and try some things out, but i like to have an idea of some things to look for.

    Look for a Paiste 2002 flat ride. This is a great dry sounding jazz ride. It will fit well with the Big Beats.

    Paiste 22" Formula 602 Modern Essentials

    Go to Paiste's website and "sound room" that sucker. Would blend nicely with those Big Beats. (See Vinnie's blue Gretsch unboxing vid, even he likes to play over his inputed designed F602ME's)

    or

    Try a Giant beat Multi... 20, 22, or 24"

    or

    2oo2 Reverend Big Al 24" Ride. (thin)

    or

    Signature Traditional Ride or large crash

    or

    Hit the Masters range.
