If you like a clean, resposive ride this is it. Whether your riding the ping or the bell, it will cut through the music and give a very defined sound. I play this cymbal as hard as I play my Custom Z rock cymbals and it can take the pounding. Highly recommend for the heavy hitters.

This is a very heavy ride with too much ping and not enough wash. I was running it on my 4 piece Ludwig jazz kit, and it didn't match well at all. If you're someone who hits hard, you cannot break this cymbal. Otherwise there are better rides out there.

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Ping Ride Cymbal:

      I absolutely LOVE my Zildjian Ping Ride. This cymbal is so dynamic, I swear I can get at least a dozen different sounds out of it.

      It has great projection, long sustain and I love the clangy loudness of the bell.

      Fantastic cymbal. Probably the only ride cymbal you will ever need in your lifetime, no matter what styles you play.

        Comments about Zildjian A Series Ping Ride Cymbal:

        This ride is great! It's VERY versatile. The ping is very cutting, though it's fairly comparable to a medium ride from behind the kit. You can crash it in theory if you hit it just right, and when you do it cuts through loudly with a very bright tone. It can be used quietly or for loud situations. It's really responsive, and pretty heavy. The bell, unlike the vintage crash ride that I was using, has a very unique characteristic that is set apart from the rest of the cymbal. If you are looking for darker sounds, this cymbal is NOT for you, but I love it so much, I think that I'm going to stick with it for a very long time (Which is rare for me, as I'm very picky!) Wonderful cymbal!

        Nice ride

        By Carmal

        from Hartford, WI

        Comments about Zildjian A Series Ping Ride Cymbal:

        I play this ride everyday at school on our rock/pep-band set, and it is soooooooo nice!!!! It has a very good "ping" to it, and unlike a lot of rides, it is very musical. It doesn't sound like some random off tune note, but it actually sounds..... well musical!!! It has a lot of overtones but I like that in a ride. It's not good as a crash AT ALL. One of the other guys on here said it was like a crash, don't listen to him, it's a terrible crash. Then again it's a ride, and a great one at that!!!!

        Great All Purpose Ride

        By csturtz

        from California

        Comments about Zildjian A Series Ping Ride Cymbal:

        I bought this Ride around 1991 and it was already at least 6-10 years old. I've heard from many a sound man that it's easily the best Ride they have ever heard.

        Great ride for rock

        By Hollis

        from Memphis, TN

        Comments about Zildjian A Series Ping Ride Cymbal:

        Quality is superb. I've had this 22" Ping for about 6 or 7 years now. It's been through a couple hundred gigs and countless woodshedding hours and has held up flawlessly. It's perfect for rock. It's a heavy ride, but not as heavy as a Rock Ride or Earth Ride; I couldn't imagine someone wanting a ride heavier than this one. I've had problems with my right hand going slightly numb during long gigs from vibration transfer through the stick from this ride. I'm hoping that buying a lighter ride cymbal will help to alleviate this issue. It has a very distinct "ping", and can cut through those half-stacks with ease. The bell also will penetrate the mix with a crystal clear ping. Slap the bell with the shank and look out-it's loud! Great stick definition-very little wash.It has a very low pitch wash, not good for crashing on. I would not recommend it for jazz, but for rock and heavier music it's perfect.

        Like a crash!!!

        By BrianL

        from Nebraska

        Comments about Zildjian A Series Ping Ride Cymbal:

        I have a cheapo powerbeat ride, and it is better than this! This ride has waaay too much overtone, and sounds more like a crash. The name is misleading. I will need to dampen this thing, cause it is bad. But it is durable, though.

        This ride is awsome. I got it used and I love it. Blends in right with the music no matter what I play. However the finish is not as shown so dont get excited over that.
