Zildjian Crash Ride is great!

Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

I have had the 18inch A series crash/ride for 21 years. It is a very powerful crash. It makes a good light ride. When you try to get heavier as a ride, it will begin to wash out. If you can only get one cymbal I would highly suggest you get this one.

Awesome versatile cymbal

By coolusername

from Tennessee

Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

I have always felt a little sketchy about a crash/ride because that's what came with my crappy kit as a kid and I hated that cymbal. Anyhow, quality crash rides are the bomb and this cymbal is awesome for doing shimmers and has a nice big bell on it. The ride part is real washy and when you hit this cymbal the sound hangs in the air so don't expect a fast decay out of this one. This is a PERFECT cymbal to use in contemporary church worship and I could probably make do with this and a set of hi hats if I really had to.

Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

Lets get this straight, I'm a hard hitter so i decided to use crash rides for my crashes. I have the 18" and the 20" and there both amazing. There really loud at shows compared to other cymbals they are too quiet. I'm about to order a new 18" and 20" and i can't wait to play them!

    Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

    Ordered the 20" crash/ride and the delivery was quick(3-5 days). I wish they would have used bubble wrap instead of what appears to be just a bunch of brown paper, but the cymbal survived the trip in one piece with no visible damage to it so. As far as the cymbal itself, it is a little bit thicker then I expected and looks/feels almost more towards a medium weight then a medium-thin weight but it might just be me I don't know I think its fine and it is definitely crash-able so don't worry about that. Overall I would say that I really like the sound of this cymbal. The only negative thing about the cymbal that I can think of is that right now it almost sounds too new and a bit too bright, so I can't wait to hear what it will sound like in a couple years once its aged and has some dirt on it.

    Great bright ride/crash

    from London, Ontario

    Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

    I bought the 20" inches one and let me tell you, This ride or crash or whatever you want to call it, it is so versatille, rich in sound, loud, bright and sparkly. It is beautifull when you play it, it is a sparkling ride, it is not just like a normal ride that I think it lacks character, this cymbal beats all the cymbals in the world I tell you it is so full, that I mention sparkling, it is also so beautifull you have to buy it.

    11 Years

    By I_Play_Drums-Q71mO

    from NY

    Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

    This was the first good cymbal I got. I've played many others since, but this one has stayed with me. Very loud. Great versatility, if you want you can get a real decent ping out of the bell, and when crashed this thing is thunderous. It has a real nice sustain as a crash, which can make it wash out if you try to ride too far from the bell.Overall, this cymbal has taken a lot of abuse in the 11 years I've had it and there is no sign of wear other than the usual stick marks and fingerprints. I play mostly rock/hard rock and only within the past 3 years started picking up metal and hardcore. This cymbal has performed excellently. I've played with this as my center cymbal for most setups and it works well.About a year ago I added a ZBT 16 crash, and it cracked on me already. I play the crash/ride way more than the 16 crash, and the crash ride durability puts the ZBT to horrific and humiliating shame. true, 16 -vs- 18, but still... 11 years and no wear, or 1 year and a crack. Seriously?This cymbal will not dissapoint.

    Great cymbal......not much of a ride

    By ZildJian_Maniac_102

    from OhiO

    Comments about Zildjian A Series Crash Ride Cymbal:

    This cymbal is very loud, and is wonderful to crash on. The only problem is that if you try to ride, and you are playing hard or fast, you get too much of a crash sound. I don't ride much anyways. Get this cymbal if you want a penetrating crash sound, it makes my bassists ears go numb.
