      The Meinl Soundcaster Fusion Medium Ride Cymbal offers defined, solid stick attack with a strong bell due to the unlathed surface. Its outside lathed edge increases its spread with a medium sustain. It combines two different finishes in one cymbal. The lathed surface section effects a thinner edge due to its close lathing compared to the unlathed, brilliant finish area at the middle of the cymbal. These different material thickness' effect a warm and shimmering sound with an enhanced wash.

      Defined, solid stick attack with medium sustain.

      • Made of Meinl's B12 alloy
      • Two different finishes in one (middle is unlathed brilliant, and the outside is a lathed traditional)

          Comments about Meinl Soundcaster Fusion Medium Ride Cymbal:

          I just bought this after owning & growing tired of big, pingy sounding rides for years. I had narrowed my choice between this & a Zildjian K "Ride" - both 20" (a cross between the 2 would've been perfect!). They were both similar in terms of the slightly washy sound & stick response. The K was a bit darker & quieter, which I though would sound better for more of a jazz player, but it did sound versatile & I like when a ride isn't overpowering.

          I went w/ the Meinl. It has a bright attack, rich, slightly washy tone, & a medium decay. No unsettling overtones, whatsoever. The bell is decent sized, sounds good & will definitely cut through the music. It's definitely the most responsive ride I've ever played. The stick rebound is perfect which will help your groove. Playing a fast bebop pattern comes easier than w/ most rides. You can really get some different tones & "dimension" out of it depending where & how hard you hit it. This cymbal will sound great in any genre. i think my only minor issue w/ it is that it's a tad on the loud side (not an issue for hard rock & metal) & it seems to ring out for a long time. I'm thinking a couple strips of painters tape underneath should help both issues adequately.

          BTW, I don't usually give much thought to how a cymbal looks, but this is the most beautiful cymbal I've ever seen! It's got a light copper hue. The unlathed middle is super reflective & the duller, lathed outer portion looks great too. I can see rainbows eminating from this thing!
