Buy this ride.

By TJ

Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

I played in a pop punk band for 8 years, and this cymbal has been the workhorse of my kit. Out of all my cymbals, this is the one I hit most often. Whether I ride on it or crash it, this cymbal can do anything I need it to. It doesn't matter whether you're a professional or a beginner looking to upgrade, the sweet ride will take care of all your needs. I went from pop punk to post-hardcore and this cymbal transitioned with no problem. Take my advice, make a good decision and buy this cymbal.

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

      This ride cymbal has been through so much with me. Many live shows and recordings and sounds great in any situation. Very durable. It has such a bright ping to it when you ride it, but can also be crashed like crazy. Very versatile. If that's what you're looking for in a ride cymbal, look no further!

          love, love, love this cymbal!! i had borrowed my buddies a few years ago, and recently i decided i needed a ride i could also crash on, as i tend to hit my ride a little to hard at times, playing in a stoner rock/ metal band....just got this the other day, and i freakin love it!!! really fits my requierments perfectly!!!
          i've always been a fan of the K series, this is my first A series cymbal i've owned, sounds great already, and should sound even better after it breaks in fully...money well spent!!

          This really is a great cymbal!

          By Ryan Monaghan

          from Kansas

          Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

          I purchased this without hearing it first, based mostly on the favorable reviews I read about it. I have to say, it sounds better than I was expecting! I crash on it a lot, and for that purpose it sounds clean and it projects well. The bell is bright and has a great tone that really cuts through. I replaced my old Zildjian medium ride with this one, and the difference is night and day. definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a new versatile crash/ ride. I really love it!

          best ride cymbal EVAR!

          By Cara Clay

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

          I happened to get the brilliant finish version of this cymbal because it matches my zildjian a customs. My friend has the traditional finish version, and I loved that, so I decided to get this one mostly for the looks, and I have to say that I like it 100 times better than the already amazing traditional sweet ride. I has a beautiful glassy ping to it with a slight wash under it, which sounds great for pretty much all musical styles. When used as a crash, it has an amazing full sound that is also clear and glassy. Don't settle for anything less than the best - buy this cymbal!

          Great ride cymbal

          By Placiddrummer

          from Lake Placid,NY

          Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

          I bought this cymbal last week and I am really impressed. Kinda washy but has a nice ping. Good crash sound too. I play anything from soft jazz to death metal and it worked for all of the types of music I play. Over all great cymbal.

          This is sweet. wonderful.

          By David Cervantes

          from Houston, Texas

          Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

          Well I have been through a few ride cymbals such as a 20inch Paiste Signature Full Ride, 20inch Paiste Tewnty Ride, 20inch Zildjian A Custom Ride. I enjoyed every one of those cymbals so much but let me just say that I have recently gotten this 21inch A Series Sweet Ride, mine is in a traditional finish. Anyways, this cymbal SWEEET!!! Its great. It's a great combination of a ride with really good crash ability. This is similar to the A Custom Ride, but this one has more character, it's fuller. It's a bit washy and I like that, good stick definition, and the bell is just right. It looks very durable as well. I am a fan of raw bells but this bell works very well. This ride brings some advantages, if your in a rush or don't want to take all your cymbals then you can just take this sweet beauty and a good crash and some hats and your set! I like to pair this cymbal with my 18inch Sabian AAX-Xplosion Fast Crash and they go great together!

          Worlds #1 Cymbal.

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

          This is by far my personal favorite. What a fantastic instrument. It's applications are nearly endless, from a medium ride feel, to a full on crash with the ability to build dynamics and even articulate distinct ride notes while in the midst of a more washy crash groove. For the amount of wash this cymbal is capable of, the bell itself has more ping than expected, which offers more variety when needed. There is nothing negative I could possibly say about this cymbal. It is versatile, musical, and durable. The best way I can sum this cymbal up is: If you can only bring one cymbal with you to a gig or in studio this is the cymbal. You will not be disappointed with this in your arsenal.

          Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

          i have owned this cymbal for about 5 years now and it is still holding up and gets better with age. im not one to crack cymbals but i do hit hard, this cymbal has a big full crash sound that is perfect for rock and can also be used for jazz and lighter applications. its going to be a sad day when i crack this cymbal but i dont plan on doing that anytime soon, i love the sweet ride!
