NAMM 2010: Sabian launch Paragon cymbal in Brilliant Finish
SABIAN Paragon cymbals are now also available in Brilliant Finish. Originally available in Natural Finish only, Paragon was designed by the SABIAN Vault Team in collaboration with legendary Rush drummer Neil Peart. Created using an innovative combination of traditional and modern cymbal making techniques, Paragon is Peart’s exclusive choice of cymbal for recording and touring. The cymbals will be on display at the 2010 NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif., January 14 – 17, 2010 at the SABIAN booth, number 3254.
Said Peart: “I have always found that brand-new cymbals have a certain ‘tightness’ in their physical response and their sound, and it took a few shows to play them in. Then they would loosen up and start to ‘dance’ on their stands, and the swell of sound from the attack to decay would become smooth and open.
“When I described that quality to the dedicated cymbal-makers at SABIAN, they took it as a kind of challenge: How can we build that ‘played-in’ quality into the cymbals?” Added SABIAN Master Product Specialist Mark Love: “Creating a ‘played-in’ feel and sound is a challenge, but Paragon Brilliant responds with that looser feel and sound Neil wanted. And the brilliant look really enhances the cymbals under the stage lights. Paragon Brilliant is somewhat of a remastering of the Paragon concept, and is something Neil is very happy with.”
The complete range of Paragon models, from the 8" Splash up to the 22" Ride, are available in Brilliant or Natural Finish. Handcrafted from SABIAN B20 bronze, all Paragon cymbals are quality protected by the SABIAN Two-Year Warranty. There is no additional charge for Brilliant Finish.
