best ride cymbal EVAR!

By Cara Clay

from Undisclosed

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!

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:

    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!

    Over many years I have played alot of rides. This one is by far the most versatile that I have played. Great stick definition, great flowing crash sound and a very nice clean bell. Get one!

    My Favorite By Far

    By 321Animal

    from Space Coast, Fl

    Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

    I've had this ride for 4 years and its my main Crash/Ride and I beat the life out of it when I play the heavier stuff. No signs of any cracks. The bell doesn't have all the ping you could want, but it does the job. I love it and couldn't recommend it enough.

          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 CRASH CYMBAL OUT THERE!

          Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

          I know this is a Ride cymbal, but I believe it is one of the best crash cymbals around. I use this as my main crash and my 2 19" A Custom Projection Crash's as accent crash cymbals. The Sweet Ride is the best crash riding cymbal on the market!! I'm actually thinking about getting another one for my kit it sounds so amazing.

          Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

          if used to crash on, this is the ride for you. It sounds awesome, but to ride on, honestly i think the sound is mediocre. It will be hard to record with this cymbal in the studio if you're going to ride on it because it's so quiet. Good cymbal overall.

          Sounds great

          By Seth Hansen

          from Salt Lake City

          Comments about Zildjian A Series Sweet Ride Brilliant Finish:

          This cymbal sounds great: loud, but very smooth and almost soothing. If you are a hard hitter, this does not hold up like a Z custom, so get a warranty. I broke it after only about 2 months. Sounds amazing with Z or A custom crashes.

          this is a great cymbal. I don't know about studio sound, but for live situations it kicks. It has great crashing abilities and the bell is great, as well. It's not really made to be a solid sounding ride but sounds good nonetheless.

          I am completly satasfied with this cymbal. It wonderful! I love crashing on it, but also love riding on it. This is great for fast or heavy drummers, but is also great for jazz style. The only thing im not crazy about is the bell, but its still good. I would recomend this to everyone who wants a GREAT ride cymbal. After all, Travis Barker uses it!

          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.

          If your looking for a ride that has a bright sound, great decay, and a bell that sings this is the one for you. I've had it since Chrismas 07 and I've loved it. It's so far been very durable, and has shown no signs of cracking. I dont think I'll ever got to any other ride after playing this one. Great Buy!

          I have used this ride many times, and I absolutely LOVE them!! The bell is loud and clear, and the bow is smooth and just excellent!Although this is a good price, I just wish it was a little cheaper, then I'd buy three!

          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.
