I have had the 20" A Custom Projection Ride for just over a month now, and I will never regret buying it. It definitely has the bright, pure tone that is a characteristic of the A Custom line of cymbals. It definitely lives up to its name and cuts through loud music while retaining its crisp stick definition, but I have also found it to be excellent in quieter settings as well if I play it with Thunder Rods or brushes like I do in church. I honestly can't say enough good things about the bell; it rings loud and clear whether you're hitting it with sticks, brushes, or mallets, and it's great for Latin for that reason. I would highly recommend this cymbal to anyone looking for a versatile ride cymbal with great stick definition and projection.

I traded my 20" A Custom Ping Ride for this because the wash on the ping swelled up too much when hit with rapid 16th notes. I thought this cymbal would solve that. It did...kinda. Maybe I just got a bad one, but there was little definition in the ping, like I was striking it with a broken stick. For similar money, I'd get a Z Custom Ride.

Loud Bell

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

Great ride cymbal. Used by the famous Carter Beauford for years; check out some live Dave Matthews Band CDs to hear it. Only complaint is that you have to play very lightly on the bell because it gets LOUD. However, for rock/metal sometimes a loud, ear piercing bell is good.

Can't Be Beat

By Crylate

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

I owned this cymbal for years, used it as a crash and ride, and it is the best at both. Exceptionally durable. The bell is the best sounding and loudest I've heard. I've owned thicker and thinner rides, and this crashes just as well and rides as well. Works in many applications. Really, you can't say enough good things about this cymbal.

Simply Perfect

By Joel-s2B_f

from Perth

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

When I first got the Projection ride I wasn't used to having a really pingy sound, but as soon as my taste for this cymbal developed, so did my sound palette. Now I use my ride about 70% more than I did before and this is just the most perfect ride. I own the 21" by the way. Amazing.

amazing

By Mike-s0dtH

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

I have owned this ride for almost 4 years. It is, and always has been, a wonderful cymbal. Lots of glassy overtones, good definition and very strong. You could use it in low volume applications if you are sensitive with it, but it blossoms at high volume, and works well as a HUGE crash or crash/ride. Get it!

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

i have the 21 inch projection ride. i was looking for a ride thatwas in the a custom range...but every one i tried sounded too ringy and high pitched. then i tested this one. it was low but still high pitched and it sounded (and looked) beautiful. for a projection ride...its not THAT loud. i thought it would pierce...but its not bad at all. 10 STARS! goes great with a custom 16" crash

Amazing ride

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

Amazing ride. its mainly a rock ride, but it can be used for lighter applications too. Bell is amazing; not too piercing, but still projects. You can also crash it for punk-style applications. It will not be drowned out by any amp. In fact, it will force your guitarist(s) to turn up!!! This cymbal is totally worth the money.

Awesome cymbal

By tamaman13

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

I purchased this cymbal about a year and a half ago intending to use it for an alternative rock style. well, things change and now I drum for a metal band. I must say, I think this is the only cymbal that has the capability to cut through the aggressive volume of metal. I love the bell, it cuts extremly well, and has amazing volume and ring tone. This is by far a great buy.

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

I got this ride used from another store but i must say it is the best ride i have ever used! It is plenty loud or quiet and it has great sound tone and the bell is very crisp and clean. If you are looking for a ride get this.

Brilliant!

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

If you're into the rock genre, this is the cymbal for you. The bell is nice and cutting and the body of the cymbal is thick enough to carry a solid pattern but thin enough to make a wonderfull crash ride. One of the best rides I've ever hit. And it can do the job for just about any style.
