          This ride cymbal has been through so much with me. Many live shows and recordings and sounds great in any situation. Very durable. It has such a bright ping to it when you ride it, but can also be crashed like crazy. Very versatile. If that's what you're looking for in a ride cymbal, look no further!

              love, love, love this cymbal!! i had borrowed my buddies a few years ago, and recently i decided i needed a ride i could also crash on, as i tend to hit my ride a little to hard at times, playing in a stoner rock/ metal band....just got this the other day, and i freakin love it!!! really fits my requierments perfectly!!!
              i've always been a fan of the K series, this is my first A series cymbal i've owned, sounds great already, and should sound even better after it breaks in fully...money well spent!!

              best ride cymbal EVAR!

              Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

              I happened to get the brilliant finish version of this cymbal because it matches my zildjian a customs. My friend has the traditional finish version, and I loved that, so I decided to get this one mostly for the looks, and I have to say that I like it 100 times better than the already amazing traditional sweet ride. I has a beautiful glassy ping to it with a slight wash under it, which sounds great for pretty much all musical styles. When used as a crash, it has an amazing full sound that is also clear and glassy. Don't settle for anything less than the best - buy this cymbal!

              Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

              I bought this cymbal last week and I am really impressed. Kinda washy but has a nice ping. Good crash sound too. I play anything from soft jazz to death metal and it worked for all of the types of music I play. Over all great cymbal.

              Worlds #1 Cymbal.

              By Avedisdrummer09

              from Pittsburgh, PA

              Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

              This is by far my personal favorite. What a fantastic instrument. It's applications are nearly endless, from a medium ride feel, to a full on crash with the ability to build dynamics and even articulate distinct ride notes while in the midst of a more washy crash groove. For the amount of wash this cymbal is capable of, the bell itself has more ping than expected, which offers more variety when needed. There is nothing negative I could possibly say about this cymbal. It is versatile, musical, and durable. The best way I can sum this cymbal up is: If you can only bring one cymbal with you to a gig or in studio this is the cymbal. You will not be disappointed with this in your arsenal.

              i have owned this cymbal for about 5 years now and it is still holding up and gets better with age. im not one to crack cymbals but i do hit hard, this cymbal has a big full crash sound that is perfect for rock and can also be used for jazz and lighter applications. its going to be a sad day when i crack this cymbal but i dont plan on doing that anytime soon, i love the sweet ride!

              Best cymbal for dynamics

              By RimShot62

              from Boston

              Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

              This is the best cymbal I have found for building dynamics. I have yet to find a cymbal that can go from straight ride dynamics, build volume to a crash and then go right back to ride dynamics as well as my Sweet Ride.

              Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

              I bought this for a recording session about 5 years ago, and it survived ever since. I played it and toured with it more than any crash cymbal I had before, and it lasted twice as long as any of them. It's a little expensive, but I'm definately going to pick up another one.
