Playing for the rock band ELP, Palmer achieved critical acclaim for fusing genres of music to create a style many would later take influence from. This signature 20'' ride cymbal, named Vir2osity, has been handmade in Switzerland, collaborating Paiste's traditional methods of craftsmanship with Palmer's particular preferences.
