Different to the other ride cymbals in the Signature series, the Paiste Signature Classic 20'' Mellow Ride is a high-profile, medium weight cymbal with a symmetrical style of hammering, shallow lathing, and a big rounded bell. Playing near the very edge of the cymbal produces the Mellow Rides crash like sound that cuts away neatly and cleanly. The Mellow Ride has a medium weight which provides a strong attack with a long sustain. The 20'' diameter provides a tight, warm, and clear sound with a low-medium volume.

Paiste's Signature Series employ the company’s Signature bronze alloy and a variety of hand-hammering, machine assisted hand-hammering, and machine hammering techniques to enhance the dark tonalities and complex harmonic structures. With a higher shape and a symmetrical style of hammering and lathing techniques, Paiste strive for a shimmering sound with a brilliant projection.
