OVERVIEW

Old school. New attitude.

Combines a warm, dry stick sound with a lush, dark, dry, warm, and full-bodied crash sound, ideal for accents. Provides both these sought-after qualities in a single, unlathed, and extra-hammered but thin cymbal design. Ideal for electric and acoustic jazz. The K Custom cymbals are specially designed to provide more volume and cut with a quicker attack and decay than traditional K Zildjians.

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dry Light Ride Cymbal:

Excellent choice for jazz and low key musical environments.
I have the 22" version, and matches well to an 18" K Heavy Ride with two rivets.
It's crashability ads to it's usefulness and appeal.
Very similar sound to the rides used by a number of the jazz greats during the '50's & 60's.
Blends with the drums wonderfully well.

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dry Light Ride Cymbal:

probably the most beautiful ride I've ever played. The stick definition will make you cry, as will the hot and dry overtones. I'm in love. Not a bad crash either, especially if you "shank" it with your stick. A quintessential jazzy cymbal.

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dry Light Ride Cymbal:

Three words. Best Ride Ever. I bought this cymbal after playing on an A custom ping ride for some time, and couldn't be happier with my decision. Perfect stick definition, perfect quality, and above all, perfect price. I play a lot of Emo and Rock, and this cymbal was the perfect dark sound I have been looking for. Records great as well.

Its like riding a crash cymbal.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dry Light Ride Cymbal:

Based on previous reviews and sound bytes, I thought this cymbal would be what I was looking for. However, it is EXTREMLY washy (it's like using a crash as a ride) When they say DRY they mean DRY. Nothing bright or clean about this cymbal. If this is the sound you're looking for, this cymbal would be great. I think it would work better as a crash, because the crash it makes is awsome. Deep, dry, washy. But as a ride its hard to get it to cut thourgh anything because of all the ringing wash. Might work well with acoustic Jazz.

K kustom dry light review

By Mathwizo@aol.com

from Winston-Salem, NC

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dry Light Ride Cymbal:

This cymbal is one of the BEST cymbals i have ever had the pleasure of owning. It has an in between sound of the classic Constantinople "tah" and a K Ride "ping", with a leniency towards the "tah". It does not overpower anything at all, and does not build up with wash when swinging at like 280 300 bpm. Besides my hats, this is the only other cymbal i use when lpaying with my jazz combo. I don't need anything else. It rides, it crashes, it's just a joy to play on.

The perfect ride

By Jazzman-L5wc-

from Farmington, MO

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dry Light Ride Cymbal:

After searching endlessly, I had all but given up hope... until I found this ride. It had everything I was looking for; low wash, great stick articulation, and an overall low tone. It contrasts great with high wash rides. I will not be getting rid of it anytime soon.

maybe the best cymbal ever?

By KeyMan-viOiZ

from Mesquite, TX

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dry Light Ride Cymbal:

This thing is killer... If I were playing with a jazz combo it would be my only cymbal in a small setup. you can ride, and crash the thing. It is very earth and dry tons of complex tones but they decay quickly and never compete with stick articulation. Best as a jazz cymbal and very unique as a 2nd or 3rd ride in a rock setup... most will find it not loud enough however for rock.

best ride i have ever played

By grooveman-CAQ-O

from Chehalis, WA

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dry Light Ride Cymbal:

This is the best ride i have ever played. nice dry sound, that isn't too punchy or too soft. and unlike most other rides it won't drown out the rest of what you are doing. great stick definition and playability. the only problem is the size of the bell, wish it was a little bigger to get a more defined tone. but well worth the investment.
