Lamb of God Sound

Comments about Zildjian Z Custom Mega Bell Ride Cymbal:

This is a great, loud cymbal. And if you're into thrash/speed metal like me then you'll fall in love with this cymbal. The bell is a heavy high pitched sound that delivers a short ring. Perfect for that Lamb of God stuff!


Beautiful Sound!

Comments about Zildjian Z Custom Mega Bell Ride Cymbal:

This cymbal has the greatest sound ever. It is a raw sound that is a great addition to any drum set. It has a nice enlarged bell that cuts through guitars and other instruments. Its a great cymbal even if you don't play in a band and just play for fun. I was going to get a custom projection ride but this one caught my eye so I got it.


AMAZING, this thing is worth every penny!!!

Comments about Zildjian Z Custom Mega Bell Ride Cymbal:

This is possibly the greatest ride cymbal i have ever heard. When playing with my five other band mates i couldnt do any bell work with my old ride cymbal because no one could hear it. Now with this baby they can hear it. Even my family noticed the difference when they listened to me drum. This cymbal has such a unique sound. It cuts through the loudest cymbals and guitars like thier melted butter and its exelent for blast beats since thiers alot of stick articulation. Its a monster and you will need a good stand to hold this baby. If you play rock or any kind of metal and you need a powerful ride cymbal, this is the way to go! not to mention it looks AWSOME.

Comments about Zildjian Z Custom Mega Bell Ride Cymbal:

The best cymbal I own. I just got it in the mail yesterday. The large bell is fantastic. It cuts through the amps like a hot knife through butter. I was scared at first to spend this much on a ride I heard once but in the end its the best spent money on my set so far!


Great if you know how to use it

Comments about Zildjian Z Custom Mega Bell Ride Cymbal:

This is a great cymbal for all types of metal. I perfer death and speed metal, but it all depends on what sticks you use and what tuning your band usually plays in. If you noticed from the recording(which doesn't give a good sound) there is a long sustaining low end after the ping so I don't like to use it for solo's but if you play death metal, the low end completely over powers the cymbal and if you have any constant bass you can't hear it eather. I would recomend using pointed nylon sticks for this to get that maximum ping sound (I use Regaltip Jazz) and avoid barrel sticks if at all possible because it makes a minimal ping and just makes alot of resonance. also if you hit it hard enough its the biggest and loudest solid crash you've ever had, it will even give you the crash sound but its so heavy that you'll never get that sound unless you just come down on it as hard as you can from the side on perpose; so no worries on it happening during playing. the bell is very nice but if you really want it to pierce you can side stick it and get a rlly loud pick that just cuts through the music. Basically, if you want a subtle pingy ride for metal music this is the way to go because of its heavy weight and overal size and its extremely low for a bell, bell for a more dark piercing sound.
