Paiste New Energy Dark Energy Mark 2 Ride 20"
Medium weight Soft to Loud sound Pronounced and crisp stick sound Lively and easily controllable intensity Medium sustain
A fusion of darkness, energy, projection and brilliance. Very wide range, complex musical mix. Responsive feel, easily controllable. Woody, silvery spanky ping over crunchy, thriving wash. Extremely versatile and flexible ride for wide-ranging application in modern blended music styles.
Mark 2 tends to be a bit brighter and livelier. This manifests itself in the overall sound character and in particular in the bell and ping sound. Also has a bit more volume potential due to its more open character.
