            Comments about Zildjian K Custom Medium Ride:

            I've had this cymbal for almost three years and it's still my go-to ride for almost everything. It has a great pingy sound without being too dry and works in any genre. The bell on this thing is my favorite sounding bell I've ever had on any ride cymbal- the only downside is that it doesn't really crash well.
            This is a really good cymbal for beginners; it's sturdy and there's really no wrong way to hit this thing.

            Beautiful and versatile sound

            Comments about Zildjian K Custom Medium Ride:

            I got this to replace a 22" A Custom Medium Ride. The A Custom had a nice, bright stick definition, but it rang on for days. If a drummer uses it for a crash at some point, it'll ring through the rest of the song. I record my own music as well as clients, so I wanted something that would be versatile for different kinds of music, as well as controlled enough that someone recording here wouldn't get something they weren't expecting when they hit it. I tried a number of different rides, and the K Custom Medium was just perfect. It's not dark in a thick, vintage way, but dark compared to the A Customs series. It has a nice wash but not endless ringing, it decays just right - not so short it sounds strange, but not ridiculous length either. I've used it on indie rock and 50's/60's/doo-wop/motown, kind of daptone-ish sessions so far since getting it, and it's been perfect so far. It can be played pretty hard without getting out of control. I have the 20" version. I've always liked 22"s a lot because 20"s generally sound too much like a big crash to me, but the 20" that I have isn't nearly as washy as most others I've heard. I highly recommend it!
            Wonderful sound, exactly what you'd expect.
            Beautifully made, like all of Zildjian's cymbals.
            Not a bad price at all for a significant jump in quality and versatility over something like the A Customs. They're not cheap but not as expensive as I'd expect them to be for how they sound.

            Zildjian K Custom Dark Ride

            Comments about Zildjian K Custom Medium Ride:

            I have had my K Custom Med. Ride 22" cymbal for about a year now. I use it mostly in shows and for church worship services. The when you ride on the cymbal, it blends nicely with mostly any crashes. I use it with my A Custom crashes, as well as my Mastersound hats, but you can definitely hear the ride throughout the mix. The bell cuts through like a knife, with just the right amount of ping. It sings loudly when crashed, but it's kind of washy. Cosmetically, the cymbal has a traditional top with random hammer marks, and the underside is an unlathed brilliant finish. Overall, this cymbal fits my needs perfectly. Given the price tag is high, the quality of the cymbal is superb. Buy it today!

            My choice

            A very nice ride cybal. I bought after I try it out in a music store. At first, I didn't like it because I thought that it was not loud enough. We do not hear the same that the crowd is hearing when we are playing. But, since I heard someone else play my ride (I was in front of the drumset, like the audience), I fell in love with it. It sounds wonderful. A very versatile ride.

            This cymbal has a Very nice tone. It's not too dark and not too bright, it looks great. It's very versatile, you can play almost any kind of music with it, it sounds good playing alternative and it's really sweet for ballads.

            This is THE most versatile ride i've ever played. A dark ping with beautiful sounding overtone, and a decent bell. DEFINITELY a great ride for jazz, but it is well suited for rock too. Trust me, I have a Z Crash and this ride still sings above it. Buy it, you won't regret it.

            K ride

            By Luke drcvl

            from Marysville Mi

            Comments about Zildjian K Custom Medium Ride:

            This ride was the first K series cymbal i have ever purchased and i was not disappointed. This ride is really a good cymbal for all types of music. Its tonal range is very good and the bell has a very loud projection that will easily cut through all music. The only thing i have noticed with this cymbal is due to the fact that it is so thick, it requires a lot of force to get a loud ringing sound out of it. but it has a very good tone used as a light "ping" Ride. I would highly suggest this cymbal to any drummer. Especially to the drummer that likes a nick dark tone.
