  • the pefect ride

    As reviewed by Ethan on 1/2/2011

    This ride sounded great in the store but even better played with my kit! I previously had a 20" k custom dark ride which has a beautiful tone but washes out when played heavy. This ride has excellent stick definition providing a sweet clear ping and low, dark overtones which stay at a low to moderate volume. Can be played heavy without worry of running away from you. Its medium weight allows for good stick rebound too. Versatile- could be used for jazz, blues, rock, metal and in close or large settings. In my opinion, this is what a ride should sound like.

  • The most versatile, wonderful ride ever.

    As reviewed by GARRISON TURNER on 4/3/2012

    I can't describe how wonderfully easy to play this ride is. It is the definition of versatility. After hunting for years for the perfect ride cymbal, I have finally found my sound, and it's the K ride. Why? It is warm, pleasant, easy to listen to, easy to play, but at the same time well defined, sharp, sweet, and just the right amount of wash under it. You can lay into it and it won't wash out, but won't feel like an anvil either. It's just ... PERFECT. You will never lose stick definition, but can crash in louder settings. And don't let the picture fool you, the bell is BEAUTIFUL! It is sharp and well defined, but musical, and not at all obnoxious. This ride records like a dream, and is incredibly MUSICAL! It can be played in just about any kind of musical situation. Do yourself a favor and at least go TRY ONE OUT at your local guitar center. This thing's a winner!

  • Best ride cymbal I have owned

    As reviewed by Eric on 10/25/2006

    I have played many rides over the past 20 years, and I discovered this one while in a pro-recording studio in Brooklyn, NY. The sound engineer asked me to try this ride, and I was amazed and how versatle and sweet sounding it was. I immediately bought one. It has a quick decay, which means it doesn't build up to loud when riding heavy on it, like some heavier rides. The bell cuts through nicely. What I especially like, is that you can crash it, or just hit "accents" on it, while continuing to ride on it, and these come accents come through beautifully, but fade back to your ride groove nicely. I highly recommend this for rock and jazz.
