A Keeper

By Fallin

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ping Ride Cymbal:

I bought a 20" 8 years ago and still enjoy it. This ride cuts through a mix weather your playing on the bell,bow,or edge. Even cuts through at low volume.Great stick definition with wood or nylon tipped sticks.Very wet sounding.It is not a great crash (a little to resounding) for my style but thats what they make crashes for.This is also a durable ride.Mine gets used and sometimes abused and still no problem. I like to keep mine clean for that wet sound.

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ping Ride Cymbal:

    Have been using a 20 in. Ludwig Paste Sizzler Ride since the 1960s. Love the "Sizzle" sound, but wanted a high quality "ping" ride cymbal to add to my set. Recently purchased Zildjian A Custom hi-hat cymbals through this site. Excellent cymbals. When I was able to purchase the Zildjian 22 in. A Custom Ping Ride over the July 4th holiday with an additional 15% discount, I could not resist. Love the cymbal and got it at a great price!

    This is the best ride cymbal money can buy. It has the best ping i've ever heard, and trust me i've heard a few pings in my day ;-) This ride can be used in many different musical settings so overall it's a great buy. i love the ping, it's easy to crash, and man it sure is pretty.

    surprised...

    By Steven08

    from South Bay, CA

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ping Ride Cymbal:

    Did my research, saved up and bought one of these. Alright so her are the facts, it was a definate improvement from the zbt used at my church, but durin songs there were parts where I couldnt get enough volume out of it. I use nylon sticks to make the cymbal sound brighter, I'm not sure if thats the problem. Overall its a great versatile cymbal that makes your whole drumset sound ALOT better. The "Ping" is great and the bell really rocks. A little expensive but still a definate buy.

    Ping Ride

    By mattsorum

    from NC

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ping Ride Cymbal:

    I use this cymbal every time I play in church, and it is my favorite ride. It is perfect for any music style and projects very well, even at low volumes. It has the Guns 'n Roses sound and will work well for any type of rock music.

    Bell-worthy for sure

    By kylewagoner

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ping Ride Cymbal:

    I've owned this for a while. It was what I bought to get out of using my initial ZBTs. The bell on it is pretty awesome but on mine in particular, it sounded darker than the one that came with my ZBTs. I don't know if they're all like that, but the ones I've heard are like that. The bell is very loud, though, and is great through a band. I've also used it in a jazz band setting and the ride really isn't made for that...however, in louder music, it works. I like side-sticking the edge sometimes at the top of crescendos. Don't buy it if you're looking for a jazzy ride.

        I got the 20" for a 50% off closeout price plus a 15% off coupon. Could't pass up such a deal. Very nice cymbal overall. Bell has a great sweet spot. Extremely bright stick sound. Was a bit heavier than I expected so had less wash when crashed but better sticking. Quite happy with this deal.

        Amazing ride!!

        Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ping Ride Cymbal:

        I got a used 20'' ping ride that sounded very amazing when I got it. I was told it was over 10 years old, so I was surprised it sounded so amazing. the bell has some of the clearest definition Ive heard. I actually used a non abrasive metal cleaner on it and it seriously brought out the definition even more. It is a seriously great sounding ride, especially for softer songs and ballads, but I can play metal just as easily on it as well, especially the bell. Plus for the fact that it was claimed to be over 10 years old, its held up greatly. I think it's well worth the money, this cymbal will last.

        The best ride cymbal, period.

        Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ping Ride Cymbal:

        I've owned this cymbal for over 8 years, still no cracks, dents or key holing. Sounds perfect from Jazz to Extreme technical death metal and anything in between. Perfect stick definition, kinda crazy sounding crash qualities. Definitely loud. Cuts through 2 montser half stacks. I use this cymbal the most for blast beats and awkward ride patters. This cymbal will not let you down. Buy the 22". It's worth every penny. :]
