20" K Custom Ride Cymbal

By GHCCDrummer

from Antioch, CA

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Ride Cymbal:

The 20" K Custom Ride Cymbal is very crisp, quiet and bright. The articulation of each attack is clear and well-defined. This ride is definitely one that you would not want to crash on very often. It produces a very clangy sound. I use this cymbal every time I play in my church band and rock bands.

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Ride Cymbal:

I had to choose between a Dark Ride and this ride and I chose this one, let me tell you, this is the greatest ride cymbal I have ever played. It can stand up to hard rocking and then sound just as good in big band. The bell can certainly cut through anything and the wash and overtone on this cymbal are just right For me, it was worth every penny. Your not going to find anything much better than this!


Amazing definition with an unique crash.

By Mark Bolton

from Florence, Mississippi

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Ride Cymbal:

I love this ride. It has great definition that is PERFECT for all music styles, jazz, rock, rap, anything. I had an A Sweet Ride before, and it just wasn't enough definition, just like an oversized crash that the only way you could get definition was with tiny ball tips and such. I got the 22" version and I have played the 20". The 20" has a little less definition and more crash like.


Excellent Pingy Ride with KILLER Bell


from Goose Creek, SC

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Ride Cymbal:

This cymbal fits my style almost perfectly. It is a cool blend of bright attack with some dark tones behind it. Stick definition is great. It doesn't seem particularly heavy, but is fairly stiff. If you give it the shoulder of your stick, you'll get back some nice trashy qualities. This is an excellent ride, and the bell is great. HOWEVER, if you REALY lay into the bell hard enough, it reaches a limit and will sound almost choked. And you absolutely CANNOT under ANY CIRCUMSTANCE CRASH THIS SUCKER. So if you want something to wash ride, look elsewhere. It is quite versatile, and has great character.
