  • Great For Rock and Metal

    As reviewed by Coldfront777 on 10/23/2006

    I have had the 20" A Series Ping Ride for almost three years. I have had no problems with it so far, and believe that it will be a while before it cracks. This ride cymbal's weight is classified as MH (medium heavy), making it ideal for only a couple styles of music (rock and metal). The cymbal has a bright, loud sound with a lot of overtones, giving it that distinct "ping." In other words, if you're looking for a jazz ride cymbal with few overtones and dry stick definition, this cymbal is not for you. The only reason I gave features a ?4.5? was because it does not have quite a diverse enough sound to suit my many styles.

  • One of the cleanest sounding ride.

    As reviewed by lasr69 on 9/8/2006

    If you like a clean, resposive ride this is it. Whether your riding the ping or the bell, it will cut through the music and give a very defined sound. I play this cymbal as hard as I play my Custom Z rock cymbals and it can take the pounding. Highly recommend for the heavy hitters.

  • Great ride for rock

    As reviewed by Hollis on 4/2/2010

    Quality is superb. I've had this 22" Ping for about 6 or 7 years now. It's been through a couple hundred gigs and countless woodshedding hours and has held up flawlessly. It's perfect for rock. It's a heavy ride, but not as heavy as a Rock Ride or Earth Ride; I couldn't imagine someone wanting a ride heavier than this one. I've had problems with my right hand going slightly numb during long gigs from vibration transfer through the stick from this ride. I'm hoping that buying a lighter ride cymbal will help to alleviate this issue. It has a very distinct "ping", and can cut through those half-stacks with ease. The bell also will penetrate the mix with a crystal clear ping. Slap the bell with the shank and look out-it's loud! Great stick definition-very little wash.It has a very low pitch wash, not good for crashing on. I would not recommend it for jazz, but for rock and heavier music it's perfect.
