The bell on this is sick.


Hell yah man!!! I am highly considering getting the Reflector Series kind! I f-in love those things!!! A 22" that is! :P Nicko McBrain (my favorite drummer) used it on A Matter of Life and Death and I GOTTA HAVE IT!!! The bell is INSANE!!! This Ride is the GOD OF ALL RIDES!!! THIS IS IT!! THE ULTIMATE!!!!!!


Ah so thats what Nicko used, i thought he had a custom ride?? He is my favorite drummer aswell, huge icon, might just have to invest in one of those then :D


Oh yah man! He used pretty much all Reflector series Sig cymbals except for one RUDE he had placed right in the front and center of his set for this past tour and album. You can see him talking about it on the bonus dvd.... the RUDE is his favorite. :P But everything else was Sig Reflectors. I have been day-dreaming practically all day, and I am HIGHLY considering trying to get a pair of 14" Sig Ref Sound Edge hi-hats, a 22" Sig Ref Power Ride, an 18" and 20" Sig Ref Power Crash, Sig 8" Bell, 18" and 20" Sig Ref Heavy Chinas, a 22" Sig Heavy China, a 16" and 18" RUDE Crash Ride, and I think that is it.... unless I get some splashes.. I already have a good enough crash. :P Sabian 16" Vault. That won't be getting replaced any time soon, that is special. :P So what do you think? Awesome as all hell set I am detailing? lol!!!


oh ho fucking yes, i wish i had the money to buy that a thousand times over, but sadly, i dont have the money to buy a 6" splash :( but the thought of all that lot sitting in my possession is a rather good thought


I am probably also going to join the marines, and yah.... I'll have this shit soon enough! :P

Also check out the 2002 and 3003 series that he used back in the 80's-90's. The 3003 ride that he used sounded awesome though it is discontinued. Get you hands on one of those you best keep it. The 2002's are still in production and give you a great sound at a bit cheaper price than the Sigs. Check them out. Peace!


Thanks! Yah my Sam Ash recently got some 2002s in and other stuff... they don't sound too bad and their price isn't nasty either!

My 22" zildjan z ride is the greatest live ride ever! I dropped it off a second story balcony once. It embedded itself about 8" into the gravel and didn't even get scratched!
oh yeah it sounds pretty cool as well (great bell tone). Too bad it's too loud to record with.

My Paiste Signature Reflector 20" Dry is pretty freakin' nice.. I'm starting to be in love with it, the wash is so subtle and controllable, it just sits so nice in any mix. Rad! :)

My favorite is the 22" Sabian HH powerbell ride but for someone looking at cheaper cymbals the Paiste PST 5 22" rock ride is amazing. I chose it over an A custom and i know it was the better choice.

I am a Nicko Mcbrain disciple... and yes... he uses Paiste Signature Reflector Series cymbals. I envy this guy who owns one! THEY ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXPENSIVE!!!

My favorite ride was a 70's Paiste 22" Sound Creation Dark Ride. Like an idiot I sold it. I finally found a replacement that I actually like better. An 80's 18" Paiste Sound Creation Dark Ride. It's just the perfect ride for me.
