Responsive yet Controlled Sound

Its expressive, articulate voice allows drummers to punctuate phrases or provide rhythmic motion. The Light Ride's controlled spread and balanced tone mesh well with other cymbals in any combination.

Legendary K Series Sound

The Zildjian 24" K Series Light Ride continues the company's legacy of handcrafted cymbals made with a secret bronze alloy formula. The K Series produces a complex, shimmering tone sought after by legendary drummers like Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, and Joey Kramer.
