When you listen to the first 5 Beatles albums, you hear the constant sizzle from Ringo's cymbals. Why? He had a cymbal like this. Yes, Ringo's was "homemade" but you can have this sizzle sound as well. I play in a Beatles Tribute band, and I use this cymbal as a Crash/Ride, to get that 60's sound. This is a great cymbal. Super tone, great sustain, and sizzle!

Gong or Garbage Can Lid?

One of the worst sounding cymbals I have heard. Currently using it as an ash tray. Would not give this away.

    The Number One Cymbal

    By The Prodigy-f_.Ow

    from Atlanta ,Georgia

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Medium Sizzle Ride:

    This cymbal has the best sizzle ever found. I think this is best for patching up slow music. It has wondeful stick definition and a shiny glossy look as well as that sizzle sound that you can never refuse. I recommend it for any drumset.

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Medium Sizzle Ride:

    I'm looking for Joe Morello's cymbal in Take Five. This is a beautiful cymbal, looking like gold, but like gold, the sustain just isn't there, even with rivets. A quiet little cymbal to be used with Jazz or to ping with a nice bell tone. Anybody have any suggestions for what I'm looking (or should I say, listening) for? What was Joe using during that awesome solo with Brubeck?

      A very beautiful sounding cymbal, with a nice sound for a ride cymbal, or a light crash cymbal. Fits into my overall cymbal set-up very well.

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom Medium Sizzle Ride:

      This may be my favorite. All my others are K Customs. I use it for a left handed ride but it also is a great crash. When used as a ride it plays well with the darker sound of the K's. This one is money well spent. Great Sizzle, but not tinny. Very full-bodied with a little higher pitch (trademark of A customs).

      Great Cymbal

      Comments about Zildjian A Custom Medium Sizzle Ride:

      I have an older version of this cymbal that i got for around 5 bucks at the kennely keys garage sale, in awsome condition. And I have to say, however old the cymbal is that i have it still sounds great, and i use it all the time to fill the hi-hat beats with a little something different. It really keeps the music up and alive. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something different.
