Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ride Cymbal:

I've been a drummer for 4.5 years. I play mostly metalcore-type stuff. I bought the 20 inch.

So this ride is quite nice, but definitely not my ideal ride. I listen to The Devil Wears Prada a lot and I was looking for a ride with a good ping/ding but also crash-able. This one is great for crashing! Though very quiet ping. The bell is alright, would like it to be louder.

The sound is explosive on the crash though. I use it to wash on while playing heavier verses or breakdowns. It's nice and cuts through my other band members live if I want it to! This ride is quite light, so I suppose it makes sense the ping is low volume.

I plan on saving up and getting the A Medium Ride. It's also crash-able and has a warmer tone. I believe it has a louder ping and bell too.

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ride Cymbal:

I play jam band type music and this cymbal is really good for that style.
Cymbal sounds great overall. It has a bright sound with good stick definition. It has nice crash ride sound as well if you lay into it. The finish is beautiful. Very shiny.
My only con is that bell could be a bit more cutting than it is. But it is still an excellent cymbal.

Fantastic versatile cymbal!

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ride Cymbal:

I bought this cymbal elsewhere, and slightly used. From the first moment I heard it, I knew it's the ride I had been looking for. It sounds amazing when used as a ride and it's got a full sound when used as a crash. Most rides, used as a crash sound to "Gongy." Not the case here. Great cymbal!

EXCELLENT!

By Looser13

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ride Cymbal:

This cymbal is great. I picked it up a few weeks ago at my local drum shop. ITS GREAT!!!! If you use thin sticks or nylon tips then you get a lovely ping sound. If you use heavy sticks you will get a more washy tone. It sounds great when recording too. The decay is REALLY slow but thats a good thing for me when i have to use my ride as a crash. Dont pass this up because of the price tag. YOU WONT REGRET IT!!!!!!!!

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ride Cymbal:

This is an amazing sounding cymbal. I use it as a crash cymbal. It is very loud and has alot of wash with a loud pingy sounding bell for beautiful cutting bell shots. It is on the expensive side but well worth it.

I have been looking for a really good ride. I tryied many cymbals, many of them more expensive than A Custom, but I would prefer it because is a very versatile cymbal. It is washy for jazz and crash perfect for other styles.I made a very good choice.

Good wash ride

By JSdrummer

from Michigan

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ride Cymbal:

This is a great ride although it has more wash than ping. It plays well in settings where loud playing is not required. What I have noticed is that This cymbal (like all I suppose) sounds better with age. I've also noticed that using a light stick on it gives it a nice "click" while a heavier stick brings out much more ping. In mellow settings this cymbal is great. I louder rock settings go to a heavier ping cymbal.

Great Cymbal For The Money

By SirPlorkenblog

See all my reviews

Comments about Zildjian A Custom Ride Cymbal:

High School's Concert band was THROWING this away, because it was "too dirty" so i followed them to the dumpster and got myself a free ride cymbal. Not big on pinging, but more on crashing, this is the perfect ride for me. More of a crash/ride to be honest, but plays great nonetheless. coupled with a 20" a custom crash ive got the sound ive always looked for. great cymbal!
