Amazing ride and despite the price tag, it's worth every penny. The edge is great for crashing, the bow is very pingy, and the bell brings it all together with its cutting qualaties. The finish looks absolutely gorgeous but you have to keep up with the hygene if you want it to stay that way. Zildjian shines with every product they make, and this is no exception. Buy this ride now!

I traded my 20" A Custom Ping Ride for this because the wash on the ping swelled up too much when hit with rapid 16th notes. I thought this cymbal would solve that. It did...kinda. Maybe I just got a bad one, but there was little definition in the ping, like I was striking it with a broken stick. For similar money, I'd get a Z Custom Ride.

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

    I have had the 20" A Custom Projection Ride for just over a month now, and I will never regret buying it. It definitely has the bright, pure tone that is a characteristic of the A Custom line of cymbals. It definitely lives up to its name and cuts through loud music while retaining its crisp stick definition, but I have also found it to be excellent in quieter settings as well if I play it with Thunder Rods or brushes like I do in church. I honestly can't say enough good things about the bell; it rings loud and clear whether you're hitting it with sticks, brushes, or mallets, and it's great for Latin for that reason. I would highly recommend this cymbal to anyone looking for a versatile ride cymbal with great stick definition and projection.

    Not very versatile.. the wash drowns out the ping

    By Matt Spradling

    from Louisville, Ohio

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

    This cymbal is only for hardcore metal and music of that sort. This CAN NOT be used for anything like jazz, blues, funk, or even rock.. its just way too aggravating, and obscure in the kit. It looks nice sure, but its a very awkward sounding ride.. its heavy as hell, but it still has a very LOUD wash to it that drowns out the ping!! Shouldn't it be the other way around! It's like playing on a 20" heavy crash. Although it's a heavy crash, it's intended purpose is to be a crash, not to be ridden on! The bell is piercing, but again is drowned out by the wash... It's a very awkward cymbal it is..... not worth the money.. i replaced it with a K Custom 22" Ride.

    Simply Perfect

    By Joel-s2B_f

    from Perth

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

    When I first got the Projection ride I wasn't used to having a really pingy sound, but as soon as my taste for this cymbal developed, so did my sound palette. Now I use my ride about 70% more than I did before and this is just the most perfect ride. I own the 21" by the way. Amazing.

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

    This cymbol is amazing. Its the same cymbol used by Carter Beauford.(Dave Matthews Band) This 20''Zildgian A custom projection ride has an outstanding sound with loud bell. You can also use it as a crash ride cause its so loud. I highly recomend you buy this cymbol.

    Can't Be Beat

    By Crylate

    from AZ

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

    I owned this cymbal for years, used it as a crash and ride, and it is the best at both. Exceptionally durable. The bell is the best sounding and loudest I've heard. I've owned thicker and thinner rides, and this crashes just as well and rides as well. Works in many applications. Really, you can't say enough good things about this cymbal.

    WOW! A pingy ride that is full of pretty colors!

    By Rodney

    from Ohio

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

    As you probably know, the A Customs are defined as pretty sounding and full of colors. The crashes certaintly are! I was looking for a colorful and pretty PINGY ride. This is just that. It is more powerful than the A Custom Ping Ride, yet it keeps the colorful sounds! I'm so glad this PING-type cymbal doesn't sound like all the others, crap.

    Loud Bell

    By Steve-DjW6l

    from Southern Jersey

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

    Great ride cymbal. Used by the famous Carter Beauford for years; check out some live Dave Matthews Band CDs to hear it. Only complaint is that you have to play very lightly on the bell because it gets LOUD. However, for rock/metal sometimes a loud, ear piercing bell is good.
