This beauty came with my kit. This is a great ride although it can be a little one dimensional once in a while. What I mean by that is it is a wonderfully dark and rich cymbal with GREAT stick definition and a very cutting bell, but sometimes I want a little more wash to a ride- sometimes. This cymbal blends beautifully with the kit when played on the bow and cuts very well when played on the bell. I would highly recommend it. WARNING: Trying to crash on this ride might break your wrist- there's a ton of bronze in this sucker!!

Outstanding.

By Dw Drummer 222

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Ride Cymbal:

I was blown away when i first heard the cymbal. It is the perfect with an outstanding bell that does not ping too harshly. Everything about this cymbal follows the k custom way of blending extremely well with any kit. I am happy to say i purchased the cymbal today and am spoiled to hear it on my DW kit. Awesome for anyone!

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Ride Cymbal:

I recently had a recording session with this and the k custom session hats and within the first measure I stopped and all I could do was chuckle at the amazing sound of this cymbal. I would recommend this to anyone doing any recording at all.

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Ride Cymbal:

I use this cymbal for jazz/loud rock scenarios and it works perfectly. The bell is loud and crisp and the ride notes are very expressive with dark undertones as many of the k customs are. This is the second one of these I've owned and I'm very glad I found another one!

      Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Ride Cymbal:

      Fantastic for small stages when you don't want wash or muddy sound but also doesn't sound or feel like you are hitting a rock. I have a lot of rides and switch them out depending on how I feel. This one will stay in the line-up for a while. Local bar band, we play classic 70's rock to modern country and I was very happy with the range and versatility of this cymbal. I play very soft with 7A's and depend on feel and response (I get my volume from mics). This cymbal has great feed back. Expensive, but distinct sound so I guess you pay the price.

        Dark powerfull sound. Great for rock. Lots of volume. It could use more punctuation or clarity due to being a 20 inch cymbal. However, I am used to a 22 inch ride.

        Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Ride Cymbal:

        Whether it's listening to this guy play or listening to his drum/cymbal sound. This is what you're going to need right here. If your needs include washy rides with enough cut and definition to be understood, and crash's dark but definitely versatile enough to use in pop, country, rock, or jazz. I can't tell you enough how well this accomplishes the all in one solution. I have three and you should too. They sound especially good when I couple them with a couple A custom crashes.

        REAL NICE

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Ride Cymbal:

        This Cymbal is very versatile. It is a little more on the dry side but has enough wash to produce a nice crash quality. Very clear ping for ride sound. The bell is also real clear and cuts through nicely. Appropriate for any type of music. Sounds really good in the studio.

        Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Ride Cymbal:

        Amazing cymbal! Its very loud and heavy. The bell will cut throigh just about anything. The only downside is that it rings for like 30+ seconds after you hit it, but i like some ring.

        Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Ride Cymbal:

        I am in absolute love with this cymbal, it is by far the best ride I have ever played. After giving up my very very old Zildjian Avedis, this is my replacement. I play Jazz and nothing has brought out the sticking and brush tones that this cymbal has. Just amazing, wonderful and amazing! (and I tend to be skeptical about giving to high a praise for any product).

        Awesome Ride

        By THE HAMMER

        from Cornelia , GA

        Comments about Zildjian K Custom Session Ride Cymbal:

        This is one of the best ride cymbals I have ever seen, played, or heard. Has a great cutting, clear ping sound which any musician likes and it is road tough. The downside is that bell sound is kinda dry and maybe a little dull, But it's a great ride nonetheless. I played it a lot because a friend of mine had it and I was in a band with him. Great Deal!
