    Default NAMM 2010: Paiste and Alex Van Halen announce Big Ride

    NAMM 2010: Paiste and Alex Van Halen announce Big Ride
    Van Halen drummer's 2002 Series 24" cymbal

    Press Release, Thu 14 Jan 2010, 4:12 pm UTC

    This special Ride was created by Paiste's Sound Development team in collaboration with Alex Van Halen, who has inspired drummers over the world for more than two decades with his unique and instantly recognizable powerful and dynamic drumming style in the cult Hard Rock band "Van Halen".

    The 2002 Big Ride is based on the design parameters and character of the Giant Beat series. The finish is vintage 2002 style. The cymbal features a full, silky, powerful, deep sound character, and a sweet, glassy ping over a big, dark and misty wash, making it a versatile Ride cymbal with great crash-ability, a perfect addition to Alex Van Halen's very own big signature cymbal sound.

    As a tribute to Alex's collaborative effort in the creation of this unique cymbal, the label "Reverend Al's Big Ride" and a modified rendition of the principal "exterminator" artwork for Van Halen's 1984 tour have been placed on the cymbal.

    2002 cymbals are entirely made by hand in Switzerland using traditional methods that have remained unchanged in over half a century.

    Yeah, I know WTF?? And that's Al's endorsement so, presumably, he and/or his "management" signed off on it.

    I hate it that all the bands I like - such as the cult favorites Van Halen - never seem to catch on with the public. *sigh*

    My thoughts exactly! Wonder who else they consider a "cult" hard rock band?

    Led Zep? AC/DC? Judas Priest?

    Alex's cymbal sound has always been part of his tradmark sound.
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and Iīve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    I heard he was. A friend of mine from Long Island has a son who is hocking for a new line of amps called Jetcity. Hes going with him and told me he would try to get Eds and Ace Frehelys autographs for me. (fingers crossed)

    now, about Als big ride.

    I guess the Big brother is taking after little brother...

    Snares, cymbals, sticks...etc..etc..

    next we'll have the AVH neckbrace ....
