Mint condition, as new!
The «Blue Bird» 20" Mellow Ride was created in collaboration with the inexhaustible André «Dédé» Ceccarelli, the iconic French Jazz drummer whose over half century career has won him numerous collaborations with international top acts in Jazz and beyond, and who is especially known for his subtlety, diversity, artistry, wide ranging ability and musical charm that effortlessly transcends genres.
Behind the unexpectedly bright, woody click, Ceccarelli’s ride produced a strong and rich but never uncontrollable spread that afforded an even, fluid progression from note to note. I think this cymbal did the best job among the Masters Collection of marrying the silvery signature tones of Paiste’s history with the darker Turkish aesthetic
