  • Is VERY versatile!

    As reviewed by Matt on 9/1/2010

    I went in to Guitar Center looking for a crash to accompany my Zildjian 18" A Custom Projection Crash, and guess what i came out with? THIS K Crash/Ride in 21"! This thing is a monster with dynamics that make me cream my pants! It's worth every penny. It's loud when it needs to be, with enough wash to make you dig the groove, and a dark clarity and ping that you'll love more than anything. The bell is a clear BING! with a slight wash, but not too much (you know what i mean). Overall, this K has got it all! Meaning the raunchy crash that projects but with just enough spread for riding. I now have 2 rides! a K Custom 22" Ride, and a K 21" Crash/Ride. It's like i got two cymbals in one... really i mean it. Look into this cymbal, this Crash/Ride is the best Zildjian makes. Its better than the A Crash/Ride FOR SURE!!

  • Worth every penny

    As reviewed by Boss on 8/26/2009

    I was looking for a cymbal that could get a good washy ride, a good swell, and still be able to have a crash that cuts through while I was already in the process of riding/washing it out. I didn't think all of that was really possible, I thought I might have to settle in some area, but I was wrong. This is such a great cymbal that does all of those things. It can be used in many different kinds of music, and just has a beautiful sound. I highly recommend it. I have the 21"

  • Awesome Crash/Ride

    As reviewed by Kran on 2/23/2009

    This is the best ride cymbal i have ever heard. I just purchased the 21" and i love it. it works great for all types of music. I use it for playing in this group that's doing a broadway performance and also for my own rock/pop group. Definitely worth the dough
