Paragon is Rush drummer Neil Peart’s signature series which defines a new, closer relationship between power and musicality in cymbals that are dynamically responsive, highly durable, and effective in a wide range of applications.
Medium weight pairing, for fast, crisp responses and clean, bright and well-defined sticking.
"The clear curve in the profile and the heavy, intensely hammered bottom cymbal as well as the hammered marks ensure a clear and defined attack. Since these are not too large in proportion to the diameter, a rich keynote is also retained. The different calibration of patterns ensure warm presences and overtones. The 13" hi-hat looks surprisingly warm and full for its size; it offers a clear attack that is present and yet delicate - ideal for busy hi-hat patterns in all dynamic levels." - Ralf Mikolajczak
"They sound great when played closed (a nice 'tik' without the ugly resonance), really good and not too loud or trashy when played partially open, and also make a very satisfying 'chik' sound when opened and closed with the foot." - James Hundt Jr.
"The 13" hi-hats were excellent. The 13s offered more sizzle. If I had to pick a pair for all-around playing, it would be the 13s, without sounding clangy, nasal, or thin, despite the cymbals'
slightly heavier weight." - J.R. Frondelli
"I was pleasantly surprised how versatile these hats are. I play everything from hard rock to gospel and I can use these hats for either of these styles or any in between! I especially like how they sound closed or just barely open. And the clear "chick" they produce is awesome, not to loud, just real clear and effective." - Fraser
