22" Paiste Dimensions Power Bell ride 3657 grams from 2000
Very rare and discontinued cymbal from Dimensions series
Serial number: # 00040170. The Dimensions series was a professional series produced between 1999 and 2005
This ride cymbal ranks up there with my ALL TIME favorite rides ever. It is a ping monster with a killer bell. I owned two of these and kick myself daily for getting rid of both of them. Very pingy with a controllable wash. A killer bell as indicated by name, but not ear splittingly piercing.
It is a very controllable ride that is great for Rock'n Roll and metal. Nicko McBrain used this ride cymbal for Brave New World/Rock in Rio and the Dance of Death Album. He ended up getting a 22" signature Bell ride made for him for the dance of death tour all the way up to todays powerslave. I now have the 2002 version of this ride and they are very similar with the addition of hammering on the bell and the underside being lathed.
