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 models with large, volume-boosting bells and explosive responses.
"The medium-thin Paragon Brilliant crashes opened up quickly with a cutting, commanding tone, yet they possessed silvery overtones and a medium decay time. Hitting multiple crashes in succession sounded like individual hits rather than a wall of noise. These attack/decay characteristics remained consistent throughout the size range, resulting in cymbals that sounded identical except for pitch." - J.R. Frondelli
"These crashes respond quickly and with a full sound. The attack is rich in presences and is therefore powerful and explosive. This is followed - at first sight - by a broad sustain, which quickly turns into a slightly noisy modulation." - Ralf Mikolajczak
" The crash has beautiful overtones when hit at any velocity, it has a warm, glossy, resonant cool sound when hit softer with the right jazz lick, and it has a strong, aggressive, biting edge to it when you get a hold of it with some rock jams, either way this cymbal will not disappoint you." - Drum Bum
