      I have had this ride for almost a year and it is a great ride! excellent ping and great cut! when im playing to music no matter how loud this cymbal cuts through it, which is great when playing live! I played live a few times with this cymbal and in an acoustic setting this cymbal is great! Personally I do wish it had a little bigger bell and a little less sustain, I like my rides dryer. But it is a great ride overall. Zildjian is always the way to go, and I would happily purchase this ride again. Love this cymbal! Dark, great ping, medium sustain, good bell...if you like all these go for it! take it from me you wont regret it

      Well the 20" Zildjian Medium Ride changes in character every year. The one I have was part of a set purchased new about 7 months ago. It's more like a medium-heavy ride though. It doesn't have the medium-to-thin taper the old ones did. It's just medium weight all around. It rings quite a long time and can be quite loud if you aren't careful. Nice pingy definition like the old ones though just without the quick decay. The bell is higher pitched and fairly loud. This ride will sound better those those listening than to you playing it though. Overall, a versatile medium ride. It just doesn't sound great in any situation, but it gets the job done.

      A great ride for the price

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium Ride:

      This ride is great for any sort of style. Yes, it does need to be broken in. I didnt like it at first. It was given to me as a gift. After 5 years it finally cracked which is very sad. The bell is pretty nice and you can use it for a crash if you would like. The price is right there if your looking for something not too up there.

      Great ride cymbal

      By doAD-I8kiM

      from Pittsburgh, PA

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium Ride:

      Sounds great in most situations. I have had it for several months and still not a sign of a crack or dent, and I play hard. It has a nice bell (though it rings a bit long). All in all it is well worth buying this cymbal.

      great ride cymbal

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium Ride:

      i got this ride used from my local music shop in august 2006. It is my second favorite next to my K ride. It has a really nice sound, the sound you would expect from Zildjian. The bell has a really good sound also. I reccommend it to anyone, very good sound for all styles of music.

      Don't crash on this!!!

      By bruford2112

      from Grand Rapids, MN

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium Ride:

      I bought the 20' A series ride. I liked the way it sounded, but it obviously wasn't designed for the hard crashing I was using it for in the style of rock I play. It was cracked in two places in about 8 months and now it sounds like a splash cymbal. However, it has a poor ping and wouldn't ride well for jazz either. I do not recommend this cymbal for hard rock or jazz. Look into the thicker rides or the K series. Otherwise you'll be disappointed with its sound or its durability.

      Jack of all trades

      By Adam-PzhZL

      from Australia

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium Ride:

      The saying "jack of all trades, master of none" applies here, I reckon. Good value - especially second hand - but not quite up there with K's, Sigs, etc obviously. Too much wash for articulated 'ping' work, but too gong-like for quality crash-ride work. I play rock, so I like to lay into it, but sometimes it gets a little out-of-control, wash-wise. Still, not too bad. Works well with the Avedis 18" medium-thin crash.

      Comments about Zildjian A Series Medium Ride:

      It's a good cymbal... it just has the ring to its end, as most cymbals do... i used a resonator tab and put it on the bottom of the cymbal under the bell... it truely is a good cymbal for its price.
