    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Complex Ride:

    One of the best cymbals I own, and most definately the best ride cymbal I've ever owned. I fall in love with this cymbal every time I play it. I like the trashy/complex overtones you get when crashing, and it rides very well. In small, intimate settings this ride is perfect for unique stick definitions. Even in larger setting the stick definitions can really cut through. The bell has a nice ring to it, not pitchy or too bright/loud. You can find a lot of great sounds using this ride, which I love to impliment in my playing.

    The only possibly downside for me is the slightly too short sustain. The crash is so beautiful on this ride cymbal I just wish it lasted a little bit longer. But this is by no means a con. The wonderful sounds this cymbal makes sets it way over the top.

      Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Complex Ride:

      I love Zildjian Products, especially the K series of cymbals, but this one left me scratching my head. While working at a Guitar Center's drum department, I encountered this cymbal frequently.

      Its overtones were inharmonic, trashy, and simply poor sounding. There was very little stick response, and a huge wash of those clashing, nail scratching overtones. I can not see any possible genre of music that this cymbal could excel at.

      It feels like someone printed out sheet metal, smashed it with a pipe wrench a few times, and called it good. Its flimsy, obnoxious, and completely un-musical. Look elsewhere.
