  • zildjian makes a true winner

    As reviewed by bdrums777 on 10/23/2006

    Zildjian had the all around drumemr in mind when making this baby. It speaks with the slightest glance with a nice low-end wash. it can be a mellow ride for unplugged gigs or can be a massive crash with a swirl of overtones. oh, did i mention the bell? it is incredible and difinitely adds to its ride quality. just an absolute steal and has got you covered from the jazz club to the arena....

    As reviewed by phil foster on 3/17/2011

    I recently traded in a 2 year old 20" Armand ride for the 18" K crash ride. The Armand is a wonderful, classic sounding cymbal. However, in my current playing situation (small, Contemporary Christian group) the wash of the Armand was too... well, "clangy," for lack of a better word. Too much overtone, too flat and harsh. The smaller size K crash ride allows for a still classic yet slightly brighter sound with some tightening of stick definition (not quite as much as a ping or flat ride). This cymbal has a nice crash quality as well ... a definite plus in in a small set up like mine. As other reviews here have noted, the K crash ride can certainly project when you lean into it, but it also speaks softly when approached gently without sacrificing musicality. I've been playing for (drum roll, please) 45 years and have had 4 ride cymbals in that time - a '60s 22" K (made in Istanbul - a monster rock cymbal), a 20" Sabian flat ride, the 20" Armand and now the 18" K crash ride. Today, my money is on the K crash ride.

  • 20" K crash ride

    As reviewed by zildjian ftw on 11/11/2010

    It is a good cymbal! It is a nice loud crash. If you need a crash/ride, get this one. However, the bell is okay and I do not recommend this cymbal as a ride, just use it as a crash.
