Old school. New attitude.

The Zildjian K Custom Dark Ride Cymbal has excellent stick definition with full, dry stick sound; dark, warm undertones; and trashy accents. The K Custom cymbals are specially designed to provide more volume and cut with a quicker attack and decay than traditional K Zildjians.

  • Good while it lasts

    As reviewed by Matthew on 9/20/2010

    I love this cymbal. It has a great crashing sound to ride on as well as soft sound if you ride on the top. I've had two of them, and each one has lasted about 9 months.

  • Dark and Beautiful

    As reviewed by Jarell Terry on 2/8/2008

    I bought this Ride aobut a year ago and it sounds just great. It has just the right amount of Decay and tone. I really love the look of this cymbal. The K range of the zildjian brand is top notch and the K custom Dark ride is one of the best Ride cymbals around. My A zildjian hihats go perfect with this ride for Jazz. Zildjian is gettin "down" with beautiful instruments.

  • By FAR the best ride I have ever played.

    As reviewed by Neil on 1/31/2008

    The Zildjian K Custom Dark Ride cymbal is by FAR the best ride I have played. The bell has serious "ping," and I find that it can be played as another hi hat, a rare feature in ride cymbals. It is also extremely durable. I've been wailing on this ride and it stands up to the beating every time with no smashing, denting, cracking, etc. The divots also ensure that the "shimmer" resonates and lasts. Don't be afraid to hit this thing hard. It sounds better that way. Sounds like the crash cymbals in the Donnie Marple Drum Off 2007 video. I recommend using this with any good Sabian crash and the K Custom Dark Splash.
