Tool’s Danny Carey couldn’t make it, but Vinnie Colaiuta, John “JR” Robinson and Nicko Mc Brain had a blast with the new “Paiste Monad Danny Carey Signature Ride Cymbal”.
Danny Carey Signature Cymbal Introduction
First of all imagine yourself being handed over a signature cymbal by Paiste and you just can’t make it to the NAMM Show to introduce it – but three drumming Titans will love to do it for you. Well, the Paiste Press Conference at NAMM 2016 took place in a hotel suite. What a shiny place that was, filled with all of Paiste’s News for this year. And then the room lightened up even some more, when Vinnie Colaiuta, John “JR” Robinson and Nicko Mc Brain entered the stage between all those new, mostly golden, showpieces.
One after another they introduced new Paiste models in their own, unique and entertaining way. It became very obvious how much in love they all are with their cymbal endorser. In the end, one cymbal hadn’t been played: the Danny Carey Monad Ride. So all three gathered around the very dark, purple shining ride cymbal. First Nicko explored the cymbal’s looks and visual effects with all the imprints by Danny Carey. Then he said: “You know I am a bell man” and started playing. Watch what happens, when two other giants of the drumming world, also equipped with a pair of sticks, stand right next to that nice, new cymbal.
Enjoy and stay on or by(e)!
