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!

          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.

          This ride is awesome for crashing on. Perfect for Rock. I played on the Sweet Ride without the Brilliant Finish, And trust me, you'll like this one better. This cymbal is awesome.

          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.
