I think with such heavy cymbals like that, it takes a very hard hit to get that ride to “activate” but you can’t really do much other than play it with the tip and I think your ride is in the same ballpark as far as design goes. I hope that makes sense. I got the Meinl for $200 and sold it for $350 so I definitely still benefitted in the end!
    It was that way with my Paiste 2002 22” heavy ride. It had a beautiful tone, but since that tip sound is not all I’m going for, it doesn’t have much of a roll for me now.

    I agree with you (both previous posts). In my case I think it's because it's a B20 alloy cymbal. It's just not as loud as signatures. My heavy bell ride runs circles around this twenty metal ride. And I just played the 22" Sig Dry Heavy from the 1990s and wow... also much more powerful than this metal ride. From all Paiste rides I own, the most beautiful sounding and powerful ones at the same time are:

    1) 22" Sig Heavy Bell Ride Reflector (custom)

    2) 22" Sig Dry Heavy Ride (from the 1990s)

    3) 22" Sig Power Ride Reflector (custom)

    4) 22" 3000 RUDE Power Ride (from the 1980s)

If you ever decide to get rid of this guy, please let me know! I didn’t even know that this one hit production! If you get the chance to upload some clips, I’m sure I wouldn’t be the only one interested in hearing it. Congrats on the score!
    Hey I also have the 22” Alpha Metal Ride (I also have the 20" and the special edition "Slipknot" black coated 20" Alpha Metal Ride). I love all those rides, and since i chose to have Alpha metal as my main cymbal setup for my big kit, the 22" Alpha Metal is now the one I use the most. Very nice ping and loud bell.
