      This ride is great! It's VERY versatile. The ping is very cutting, though it's fairly comparable to a medium ride from behind the kit. You can crash it in theory if you hit it just right, and when you do it cuts through loudly with a very bright tone. It can be used quietly or for loud situations. It's really responsive, and pretty heavy. The bell, unlike the vintage crash ride that I was using, has a very unique characteristic that is set apart from the rest of the cymbal. If you are looking for darker sounds, this cymbal is NOT for you, but I love it so much, I think that I'm going to stick with it for a very long time (Which is rare for me, as I'm very picky!) Wonderful cymbal!

      This is a very heavy ride with too much ping and not enough wash. I was running it on my 4 piece Ludwig jazz kit, and it didn't match well at all. If you're someone who hits hard, you cannot break this cymbal. Otherwise there are better rides out there.

          Comments about Zildjian A Series Ping Ride Cymbal:

          I absolutely LOVE my Zildjian Ping Ride. This cymbal is so dynamic, I swear I can get at least a dozen different sounds out of it.

          It has great projection, long sustain and I love the clangy loudness of the bell.

          Fantastic cymbal. Probably the only ride cymbal you will ever need in your lifetime, no matter what styles you play.

            Nice ride

            By Carmal

            from Hartford, WI

            Comments about Zildjian A Series Ping Ride Cymbal:

            I play this ride everyday at school on our rock/pep-band set, and it is soooooooo nice!!!! It has a very good "ping" to it, and unlike a lot of rides, it is very musical. It doesn't sound like some random off tune note, but it actually sounds..... well musical!!! It has a lot of overtones but I like that in a ride. It's not good as a crash AT ALL. One of the other guys on here said it was like a crash, don't listen to him, it's a terrible crash. Then again it's a ride, and a great one at that!!!!

            Comments about Zildjian A Series Ping Ride Cymbal:

            I bought this Ride around 1991 and it was already at least 6-10 years old. I've heard from many a sound man that it's easily the best Ride they have ever heard.

            Comments about Zildjian A Series Ping Ride Cymbal:

            I have a cheapo powerbeat ride, and it is better than this! This ride has waaay too much overtone, and sounds more like a crash. The name is misleading. I will need to dampen this thing, cause it is bad. But it is durable, though.

            This ride is awesome, I have had the same 22 inch ping since 1989. I play shows almost every weekend with it.

            This ride is awsome. I got it used and I love it. Blends in right with the music no matter what I play. However the finish is not as shown so dont get excited over that.

            It's what you need....

            Comments about Zildjian A Series Ping Ride Cymbal:

            It's hard to shop for cymbals online but I did some research on the Zildjian site before I committed to this. It's not shiny like the picture so I gave the "features" 4.0. Other than that, this is probably one of the best ride cymbals you can buy. I have the 22" and it barely moves when you hit it, to me that's the sign of a good ride. It lives up to it's name as a "ping" ride w/little wash (but who hears the wash anyway when you're backing up a band w/a quality ride cymbal?). I spent a ton of money on this but when you think about what it takes to make something sound like this you figure that it's worth it. I'm glad that I took a chance on this. I'm clenching my jaw saying this... but "this is worth the money".
