This cymbal is suprisingly good. ZBT has some bad cymbals but this is probably the best of that line, and the hats are good. It's not to dirty and has a overall good consistent sound. The bell has a good tone and cuts pretty good, it can be pretty loud if hit hard. The bow of the cymbal is hard to get to loud and if u do it's not very defined, but that's when u hit it pretty hard. I used it live and it sounded great. I recommend it if ur lower on crash, or just not rich.

I usually can make good use of overly loud cymbal. This cymbal is no exception. This cymbal is good for the money that is asked, but the overtones are obnoxious. I actually had to tape paper towels to the bottom of the thing just to get it to sound resonably loud rather that louder than my crash cymbal (which it is). The bell has very good accents but only sounds good with nylon tips.

Make Some Noise

By Joel

from Poland, OH.

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

I haven't even been playing drums for a year now, but I've been in many different types of bands over time now as a bass player. As a bass player I have dealt with drummers my whole life... they're a bassists best friend. This is the first ride I have ever bought but I have played many on friends sets... and I love it. It has a decent sounding bell, a great ping, and even sounds good with a hard crash. The ping is higher pitched and has a nice warm tone if you crash into it... the thing I love the most about this ride is the spectrum of tones it generates at different points in the cymbol. I would deffinately reccomend this ride for anyone who cant afford the A custom! It really works well for all kinds of music, I personally use it for hardcore and punk.

Good cymbal

By Tyler

from Waunakee, WI

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

I got this a short while after getting the 16 inch crash, which I am more than pleased with. The crash I bought hasn't cracked or dented after 6 months of being the main cymbal thats beat on and both cymbals have a bright sound that beats even the more expensive crashes and rides. It has a good size bell as well. After owning these 2 ZBT's, I am planning on buying the starter pack as well so I can have the 14, 16 and 18 crashes with the hi hats and ride. Overall good cymbals.

Nice ride

By Jimbo

from Reno, NV

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

The Zildjian ZBT Ride cymbal is nice, and affordable. I have owned it for 6 years now, and it is still in great condition. It has a pretty nice sound to it, especially for an entry level ride. You can get a wide range of sounds out of it. It is definitely worth the price.

Zildjian ZBT Ride

By DudeManPDP

from West Miami, Fl

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

I first got this ride as part of the ZBT 4 pro pack. It was a decent begginer ride, but as I progressed, I found it less and less accomadating. This ride has many unwanted overtones. And my attempts to dampen it have proved fruitless. I would not recommend purchasing this cymbal. I like Zildjian cymbals, but when it comes to starter cymbals, Paiste's PST5 easily compare with Zildjian's ZHT's, at almost half the cost.

Pingy, But Ringy

By mmmike

from Beaverton, OR

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

I got the 20 inch ride, and I'd say it's somewhat versatile. It's got a defined, high-pitched ping, an OK bell, and you might even like to crash this ride cymbal. What I don't like about this cymbal is that it rings for a long time. I tried to use a moongel to dampen the overtones, but it still was ringing. It cracks easily like all sheet cymbals do, but its cheap and awesome as a beginner cymbal. It's worth the price.

An excellent chioce for the money!

By Lee

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

I bought a used ZBT ride for $40 at GC here in La Mesa, CA, in excellent condition. I already owned one for my practice kit. I bought A second one for my main kit because, it's just a great ride for the money! The best sound on the ride is in the bow (center), although it has a slightly long sustain. The bell has a great tone but the projection and volume is a little weak. For the price, I can deal with these issues. I definitely recommend this ride!

Most Reliable Ride for My Beginning Years

By Dominick Guerra

from Flushing, Michigan

Comments about Zildjian ZBT Ride Cymbal:

When my dad bought me my first ride, the 20" ZBT ride was it. I have recorded with this ride in my band and it sounded like a $400 ride. I was astounded by its tone and does have some what of a ping!!! This is definatly the ride choice for a beginner and for the money. I think this is the BEST cymbal on the zbt line that actually sounds somewhat professional.
