A very different beast than the 19" Chinese, the SABIAN 20” Paragon Chinese is still very much a traditional model in its design and sound. It's Medium-weight, with a small bell, short, steeply angled bow, and a small, flanged lip with oriental style swish-hammering for a drier, harder sound. The response of this cymbal is not as open as the 19" Chinese, and it doesn't get carried away as easily. It's a more direct sounding model, drier and harder, created to give Neil Peart a contrast between his two China cymbals. Handcrafted from pure SABIAN B20 bronze, Paragon cymbals offer subtle looks and powerful, dynamic sounds. Created using AA-style hammering and an innovative mix of sound-defining features from the AA, AAX, and HH series, Paragon 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. Small-flanged edge for a more direct sound than the 19" Paragon Chinese model Oriental style swish hammering for drier tone than the 19" Paragon China Designed with RUSH drummer Neil Peart
