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.

    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.

    Can't Be Beat

    By Crylate

    from AZ

    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.

    Loud Bell

    By Steve-DjW6l

    from Millville, NJ

    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.

    At the first i think it was to high pitched but then the sound was too cool, it sounds so good for jazz and you can play metal with it and sonds loud and clear. its a great ride, i recomend to buy this one.

    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 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.

    For rock mostly.

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Zildjian A Custom Projection Ride Cymbal:

    I use it in rock mostly, but I've used it in other styles too and it fits alright. It has that power sound that's not outrageous like a "Z" but has a little more punch than most rides that I've played. The bell is great.
