K Custom 20

By MillenniumDrummer

from Windsor, ON - CANADA

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Ride Cymbal:

I am the kind of drummer that will spend hours and hours testing, researching and retesting a product before I buy it. I also try to keep my kit versatile so I am able to play all kinds of music. This ride is a must have for all serious drummers. The quality of the K series cannot be matched. This ride sounds great from day one! It sounded great when I played the small bar scene with no mics, sounded great at a wedding gig with one overhead mic, and even better in the studio with a condenser just inches away from it. The bell is just perfect and the definition and projection of the sound is stellar. I've owned the cymbal for over two years and I am known to be a heavy hitter at times and it still is like new. This is how ever ride cymbal should be made. Spend the extra cash cause it's worth every penny, if not more!

22

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Ride Cymbal:

THE BEST RIDE IN EXESTANCE! I just purchased one of the 22" versions from my local drum shop and i play everything with it: Blues, Big Band Swing, Rock, Metal, Death Metal, Smooth Jazz. This thing is so fantastic. The stick defenition is tight and clear, while giving off a series of complex, dry, yet colorfully sinister tones. The bell is cutting and --- well there isn't much else to say. I would still play the 22" K Custom Ride cymbal even if it would of cost me $500!! Its THE MOST VERSATILE RIDE IN THE UNIVERSE.. if you're thinking of getting a ride thats good for EVERY i mean EVERY style of playing... you won't be disapointed. Please check these ride cymbals out. The 22" version of this ride is my all time favorite ride ever. And i've played many of Sabian's, Meinl's and Paiste's rides that don't even come close, NOT EVEN CLOSE to this one. If i could, i would make love to it.

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Ride Cymbal:

    I got this cymbal a week ago, and let me tell you that it is awsome. There are so many sounds you can get out of this cymbal. You can crash it, tap it, and even breathe on it, and it sounds great. Def. recomend it! Nice

    Excellent

    By (//)illo

    from Camuy, PR

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Ride Cymbal:

    I used it in the first album of my Christian band and it sounds great. The bell and the cymbal itself are great. The bell has a very clear tone. It's also great for live situations. It is a "must have" for all serious drummers.

    picked up the 20 inch

    By Torchwood

    from Columbus, OH

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Ride Cymbal:

    At Pasic 2005 I picked up the 20 inch version and I love it. The more I play it the better it sounds, as the wash improves, but it still retains it's stick definition (which is one of this rides great benefits). Please don't be discouraged when you first get or try these rides out, they need to break in before they reach their sonic potential. It's a great ride, if you don't take my word for it then take a look at the numerous artists who use it including: Anton Fig, Sterling Campbell, and Marvin "Smitty" Smith. It's useful for all styles. It is more of a heavy style ride, but it's the best your money will buy, if you want a more crashable ride then check out the K Pre-Aged Dry Light Ride or the K Custom Dark Ride. I use both of those rides as well and enjoy them, I just wanted something with a different attitude.This ride has searing stick definition, a great bell, and a nice warm and dark set of overtones. It really blends well with my 16 and 18 inch A Custom crash cymbals, I also tried out a pair of 16 and 18 inch K Dark Thin Crashes and this ride also worked well with them. Now all I need is my 17" K Custom Dark China and my 14" K Mastersound Hi Hats (to replace my 20+ year old 14" Avedis new Beats) and my cymbal setup will be complete. I also like the 22 inch version, but I had limited funds so I was pushing it with the 20. Hopefully I've been help to you and good luck in your searching.

    Absolutely The Best!

    By pimpdrummer02

    Comments about Zildjian K Custom Ride Cymbal:

    I love everything about this cymbal. The bell is so precise and it punches through the mix with amazing quality. The bow has just enough ring to make it perfect and it has a great ping and sounds very brilliant. It crashes great too, very open and has a good wash but you can still hear the stick hitting the cymbal. It is everything I have ever wanted in a cymbal.

    If you have the money, this is a great cymbal that you wont regret buying.. I mean the sound you get from this cymbal is just... wow... I had my doubts about Zildjian and how the K customs are overpriced but this cymbal produces a great deal of sound with a stick definition i'm becoming fond of.. BUY IT, if you have the money..
