Percussion is all about choice and customization, and no two drummers have exactly the same tastes in drums and cymbals. In fact, some of us are downright discriminating about our gear, and there's nothing wrong with that! It does mean that sometimes you'll have to find the middle ground between two options to get the instrument that's perfect for you, and if you find medium rides too light but heavy ones a bit over-the-top, you'll probably discover the perfect balance here in this lineup of medium-heavy ride cymbals. They have what it takes to play loud musical genres in live gigs, but they rein things in a little to give slightly more control and precision than an all-out heavy cymbal.
Like any other weight of ride cymbal, the selection of medium-heavy models brings a lot of options to the table. Do you like your cymbals with a polished look and sound? If so, you might want to start your search with the Zildjian K Custom Ride Cymbal. On the other hand, maybe you're more into dark and gritty - in that case, the Sabian HHX Series Phoenix Cymbal is just one of many great suggestions. Or is it versatility you're after? For that, check out the Paiste PST 5 Ride/Crash - with the flexibility to stand in for a crash cymbal in a pinch, it pulls double-duty to give you even more options for how you play.
Ride cymbals are an important part of virtually every drum set that sees the stage or the studio - so it's no surprise that there are plenty to choose from. Even once you've narrowed things down to only the medium-heavy ride cymbals, you've got your work cut out for you to pick out the best fit for your sound and playing style. But it's worth every minute you spend doing it, because once you've got one of these rides on your kit, it'll be eager for you to put it through its paces!
