A new ride to the Zildjian's K line, this 24" beauty is designed to generate wide variations of sound. Thin in weight, it has a dark sound with plenty of overtones. The cymbal can be used as a straight ahead ride capable of handling light playing in a trio setting to a rock ride that cuts through loud, amplified settings. It features a smaller bell and exhibits a moderate degree of edge wobble. Drummers like Joey Castillo, Travis Barker and Ronnie Vanucci have already made it their main ride.

A beautiful cymbal

By Benjamin Fischer

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

This cymbal is extremely high quality. It's got quite a unique, vintage, washy sound which can take some getting used to, but it definitely adds a subtle vibe to the mix. I play psychedelic rock and this thing sounds gorgeous with heavy, powerful sections, or light jazzy rhythms. If you're looking for a dark, relatively washy cymbal with long sustain, go for it! I found that it complements my Zildjian Sweet Ride very well. As a side-note, be aware that the cymbal will have some brown marks of oxidation (rust), but this is a natural part of the manufacturing process and they actually try to preserve as many of these as possible - it adds to the unique sound of your cymbal. I actually returned this cymbal before calling zildjian and finding out this was the case.

Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

Save your pennies and get this cymbal. I generally prefer dry rides, but the wash on this thin 24 is so sweet...with nylon tips it cuts thru nicely and with wood tips it's totally organic and smooth. A masterpiece of a cymbal.

24" K Zildjian Light Ride

By Rob L.

from Fairfield, Ct.

Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

Beautiful cymbal. One of Zildjian's best in recent years. This cymbal has a "woody" stick attack with lots of smokey wash underneath. The bell is clear and cuts through anything. You can watch the edges wobble as the cymbal works it's magic, and could play anything from Coltrane to Dave Matthews on it. A top level cymbal, it's worth the price. Once you get an instrument of this quality, you'll never settle for anything less.

Zildjian 24" K Light Ride

By GdeL

from Long Island, New York

Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

This ride is incredible. Its just the right amount of wash, and it has a singing bell. it is also very dynamic. You can play light jazz on it, and switch right to a harder rock song where you may need to crash on it. its crash is as loud as my 19" Z custom Thrash Ride. Overall, this cymbal is amazing, and worth every penny you spent on it. It can be used for anything. BUY IT.

Awesome Ride Cymbal

By DrummerGS

from El Salvador

Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

I just got this ride about a week ago and I have only one word to it: AWESOME. It has plenty of overtones and variations of sound. It is also good if you like to crash your ride since it's a light ride (thin weight). The only problem may be the price but it is worth every penny! Just buy it, you wont regret.
