I have been using this ride (21") for about ten years in different bands and venues and it has never dissapointed. It is like ten rides in one depending on stick selection, what part of the cymbal played and dynamics applied to it. I have used the 21" in bands from lounge acts to Progressive Rock to classic rock and even Country. This cymbal will respond as loud or soft as one wants it to. I can't see me using any other cymbal as my primary ride.
The cons I listed don't apply to me as I have plenty other cymbals for those purposes

I am not a fan of this ride. Luckily I didnt have to pay for mine. My friend was giving it away. It has a very dark heavy sound and a little too loud in my opinion. It is also waaaay to heavy. I like to crash on my ride a lot and this is not the cymbal for that. I break soooooo many sticks on it. Its like hitting concrete. But if you want a deep, dark, heavy ride sound you will probably like this cymbal

    Comments about Sabian AA Rock Ride Cymbal:

    Since the moment I first tapped the ride, I've been in love. This ride is versatile in any musical setting, obviously favoring rock and meal. This thing has one of the best bells around, along with a great feel and perfect stick definition. If you bash your ride occasionally like myself, I'd also recommend trying it. This is just an amazing ride, and I'd HIGHLY suggest you get it...

    Comments about Sabian AA Rock Ride Cymbal:

    I just got the 21" Brilliant Rock Ride after trading my 20" Natural Rock Ride for it and it was the best decision i've made in a while. Don't get me wrong the 20" is nice but it has alot of wash to it and it's alot lighter then the 21", the 20" is better for mellow Rock not good for the heavier stuff because it just gets lost in the song, the 21" on the other hand cuts right though no problem it's loud, Pingy, a bit clangy and has great stick definition. I recommend this ride to anyone who plays 80's Classic Rock/Metal or to anyone who likes the sound of this ride. Overall Awsome ride and would never trade anything for it !!

    Comments about Sabian AA Rock Ride Cymbal:

    I aquired this cymbal about 6 years ago from my brother after he used it for 2 years and this thing is still like new. I also played a zildjian A ping ride that sounded great but it cracked after 2 years. The Sabian AA is VERY HEAVY duty and it looks and sounds great. It sounds awesome in the studio and playing live. It can handle any style and it will last forever.

    Almost perfect

    By yqtXSOklp

    from Knoxville, TN

    Comments about Sabian AA Rock Ride Cymbal:

    Got the 21" brilliant finish, it is heavy and beautiful to look at. I got it because it sounded like the best substitute for the ungodly expensive 22" HH Rock Ride. I was slightly disappointed in the stick definition on the bow and bell. Don't get me wrong, it is definitely my favorite besides the 22" HH, but it is just a tad washier than expected, and the bell is quite as loud as expected. Again, it still sounds phenomenal. Don?t get this if you have ambitions for a ride/crash, it is too heavy and not near enough wash. Probably the best pure ride for the money!

    Comments about Sabian AA Rock Ride Cymbal:

    this is an awesome cymbal dont get me wrong, but it is to CLEAN for my taste. not a very good crashing ride but this makes and excellent ride for non-crashing playing. the bell i think should be brighter, but the bow is clean sounding. loud too. and its heavy

    Awsome Buy

    By Dylan-PleT8

    from Hardcore, Grindcore, Speed metal

    Comments about Sabian AA Rock Ride Cymbal:

    I bought the 20 inch of this cymbal about a year ago and it is by far the geatest cymbal I have ever owned, it has a great sounding bell and I sometimes found myself hitting the screw and felt on the top of the cymbal stand it was one but I just screwed off the screw from the stand and took off the top felt and it works perfect, the only thing I should warn you about with buying this cymbal is make sure you have a good, maybe double braced STRAIGHT cymbal stand, this cymbal is a little heavy, but what do you expect, it's a ride, if you got a couple extra bucks, consider buying this cymbal, it never let me down

    Cutting but not over-powering

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Sabian AA Rock Ride Cymbal:

    Clean, cutting, loud, pingy...Very versatile ride. Cuts through the mix with out being too over-powering. Not much wash, but that?s the way I like it. The bell is nice,I?d say it lacks a little in volume department but luckily I have my 18? metal-X crashes bell. I bought this cymbal because is suits me and my style of music,and gives me exactly what I want out of it. This ride might be 4 you, it might not? I recommend you test as many rides out as possible before making your choice.
