Greatest hybrid cymbal ever

By drumman18

from SF Bay Area

See all my reviews

Comments about Zildjian K Crash Ride:

Goes great with any type of drumming. Very explosive and powerful as a crash, but it can be played light and smooth like on a jazzy constantinople big band ride. It is the exact sound that I have been looking for for a long long time. My only complaint about this cymbal is that the bell isnt quite as dry as I might like with a ride. But I cant ask for a good bell on this ride, being a crash ride. DUH TOTALLY RECOMMENDED

Best crash ever!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Zildjian K Crash Ride:

I was looking for an explosive crash. I went to the Zildjian website to preview the sounds of the different crashes. Even though this cymbal wasn't listed under the crashes, this is the best one hands down. I was not disappointed one bit when I got it. The ride qualities aren't quite what I would expect for the amount it cost but, I wasn't looking for a ride. This thing cuts through any live situation and also has excellent recording qualities. If you?re looking for the best crash ever, look no further.

Bright, Loud, and Cutting - need I say more?

Comments about Zildjian K Crash Ride:

Awesome cymbal, I might have to buy the whole set ... 18,21, and 22 the 20 is nothing short of spectacular and is really projective ... It's bright and it's just plain awesome! Ride qualities are meh, good for jazz but I wouldn't use it as a main crash, but a secondary one. Other then that awesome Crash! I'm no doubt saving money to buy the 21 inch soon! Thanks ZildjianJust a side note though, I have a Projection Crash 17 inch that doesn't really blend well with it, I think this cymbal would fit well with other K's, A Customs (thins), and probably the Medium Thin Crashes just my opinion...

Outstanding Cymbal

By steverok67

from FL

See all my reviews

Comments about Zildjian K Crash Ride:

I recently traded in a Zildjian A Medium-Thin 18" crash to get the 18" version of this K Crash-Ride. I had never previously traded or really sold a piece of drum equipment in my life. It's just that, when I heard this one, I knew I had to have it. I never was too hip on the idea of a "crash-ride", I mean, what is it, a crash or a ride ? Well, I'd say this is a crash, which is excellent for "crash-riding". It has a complex sound that is, by no means, dark, in fact, I would say it's got a nice bite to it, and it has its share of brightness, with a very smooth wash and decay. It's not the kind of cymbal that you crash hard on. In fact, I think bigger crashes like this sound best when struck not too hard. I'm not that great at describing cymbals, all I do know is I have some great cymbals, and this one easily stands among the very best I own. Definitely a top-of-the-line pie ... highly recommended.

too ponderous...not what i'd expect from a k

By philreedmoney

from Southern Ohio

Comments about Zildjian K Crash Ride:

When crashed the cymbal is crashed upon, the bell produces an extremely irritating high pitched tone. I was hoping this would be a good choice as a crash since the k line doesn't offer and 20" crashes. It doesnt really float my boat, and it was a pretty big let down. I ended up placing duct tape on the underside of the bell to mute out the nasty ring and that helped a little....if you're looking for a big cymbal to crash on go with a Meinl Byzance Jazz Sweet Light Ride.

Awesome cymbal

By 2Q86THw95

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Zildjian K Crash Ride:

This is a really cool cymbal. It's a little weird to get used to at first, but once you do it is bad a**. My only complaints are that the bell rings out for a long time, not that big of a problem, and when you're playing it like a ride, if you hit hard it will pick up the crash sound.

Awsome Cymbal

By Gandyman40

from San Antonio, Texas

Comments about Zildjian K Crash Ride:

I got the 20" K Crash/Ride and it is amazing. The crash sound of it is really powerful, and explosive. The ride part is a little hummy, but I don't use the ride part to often. If you are just looking at it, I suggest you get it. Its worth every penny.

Great as a crash cymbal and an okay ride

By Miguel D.E.

from Olympia, WA

Comments about Zildjian K Crash Ride:

While I don't really like the sound of this cymbal used as a ride (I have the "1 maybe the "20 is better as a ride), I absolutely love it as a crash. I put this on the ride side of my kit as a second ride and a bigger crash to compliment my smaller crash cymbals.As a ride, the "18 is super watery sounding and the stick definition actually isn't that clear unless you play hard. As a crash, it is explosion with intelligent overtones. It is incredibly dark sounding and has the slowest, but most graceful, decay ever. Literally seconds will go by before the cymbal stops pulsating! It sounds better if you hit it harder, but a simple tap on the edge will bring it to life. It has many applications you could use this for, but the style I think of most when I play this is jazz.

Better than the older version (pre-serial)

By Dannydrumperc

Comments about Zildjian K Crash Ride:

I have the 18" version and really like it. Had an earlier version (brilliant finish) that didn't fitted in my setup. Also had a weird hum that annoyed me. This one is superior. It is better for crashing than riding, but have a very nice small bell that sounds as good as the one in my 20" K Ride (new version, too), and they matched very well together. The ride sound is good but a bit washy for a primary ride. Makes an excellent "left side ride". It is also very good for crashriding during loud passages. No weird hum or ring in this one. Too me, it is worth every penny.
