Default My official review of the 22" Phoenix ride

I've been talking about this beast for a week now, here's my final reflections on it. Videos included.

Hey, nice review! While the cymbals sound very different, your description of the Phoenix describes my Istanbul Agop dark ride pretty well. What I mean is, they seem to share the same limitations when try to make them work for a rock gig. It ends up just sounding like smoke, lol.

My Paragon always cuts through, but can be quite one-dimensional. I'm still searching for the elusive "perfect" ride.

Thanks again for the review.

I hope you don't mind, I paraphrased your words "This ride sounds like smoke" and added it to the review with your handle and a link to this thread... because that's pretty much dead-on. :D
