      OVERVIEW

      Creates sheets of rich sound yet capable of pinpoint precision.

      A new ride to the Zildjian's K line, this 24" beauty is designed to generate wide variations of sound. Thin in weight, it has a dark sound with plenty of overtones. The cymbal can be used as a straight ahead ride capable of handling light playing in a trio setting to a rock ride that cuts through loud, amplified settings. It features a smaller bell and exhibits a moderate degree of edge wobble. Drummers like Joey Castillo, Travis Barker and Ronnie Vanucci have already made it their main ride.

          Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

          i have the 22" model...great all around, versatile ride, no matter what i throw at it, whether its jazz, rock, stoner rock, etc, it seems to sound great no matter what!!
          it is very sensative, so you have to "learn" the cymbal, by that i mean there are spots and ways to hit it to get different sounds, it's kind of like having 2 or 3 different rides in one, i've played many zildjian rides over the years, and this is by far their best!! i tend to be a heavy hitter, so i end up crashing alot on my rides, this has a great almost trashy sound when hit like a crash, which blends in perfect if you're playing a heavy, rocking tune

          Pretty Good

          Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

          This cymbal is definately one of the best. It is super sensitive, if you touch it lightly, the cymbal just resonates. it is very good for jazz, and can be played loud for rock.
          P.S. this cymbal is very trashy, if you have a lot of cymbals that aren't trashy but glassy, then this cymbal will be out of place.
          the wieght distribution is a little off, so it tilts to one side, but its still good. the logo was a little messy, iguess thats what happens when you order back order. to make up for those minor problems the cymbal looked beautiful and shines under the lights, the lathing makes it looks like there is little lines lining the cymbal.
          The sound makes its an incredible value even if it was 1000 dollars

          Zildjian's Finest

          By TJthedrummister

          from San Francisco CA

          Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

          If you are a hard hitter, interested in the crash sounds, or enjoy lots of dynamic changes in your playing then this ride will be your number 1 favorite. With a perfect stick definition that will most likely fit your needs... this beauty can make your dreams come true. The purpose of personifying exactly the "not too loud" potentials... which also still stands out in it's beauty. I have had it for 2 yrs now, and it's BY FAR the best cymbal to play in a small room.. good for any genre. It impressed me the first day I got it. Worth its high priceVery dark soundingVERY light in weightQuiet ride loud & addictive crash

          Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

          This is an amazing ride. I tried out quite a few before ordering this, and three years later, I'm still VERY happy with it. You can get tons of different tones depending on stick placement/angle. It's almost like having three or four cymbals in one. A good buy at twice the price.

          Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

          I have had this for almost 2 years now. I am a JAZZ MAN! Don't know why wussy rock drummers would use this as they bash drums not play them, bit I digress ..... the thing I like most about this is the very dark wash is so much lower and disconnected from the ping, and the wash stays controlled because I am guessing due to the cymbal's size -24"- that the light rippling metal tends to dampen itself. The dark wash then lends strong texture to my drum sound while my JAZZ ping remains distinct. Had a piano player say " yeah, I was following and grooving on your cymbal all night" -never heard that before! These I believe sound different from cymbal to cymbal due to their size and complexity - so never buy one without an offer to take it home and integrate it with your other sounds. Highly recommended for REAL MUSIC!

          Incredible

          By Mitch VanDenBerghe

          from Rochester NY

          Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

          Prior to buying this cymbal, I spent a great deal of time researching this cymbal. Riley Breckenridge from Thrice uses this cymbal and I saw him use it live twice and it really cut through when it needed to while maintaining a very musical quality. He also used it on all 4 volumes of the alchemy index, and on their most recent release live at the house of blues in anaheim. Ever since I got it I have been in love with it. I use it constantly for live work in my band red letter statement, on the worship team at church, and with the FLCC jazz band. I also have used it for demoing with RLS and will be using it when we track our new E.P. in a couple weeks. I would recomend this cymbal to anyone, although it was a little pricey.

          Great Jazz/Rock combo ride

          Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

          Thin enough where, with lighter sticks, you can swing on this ride and it sings!Large enough where if you dig into it, it Screams!I did notice something about weight distribution in the cymbal...mine tilts or leans to one side as well.Overall, a very good cymbal that I believe with time will only sound better.

          Great cymbal... but

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

          Awesome cymbal, sounds great. Great for crashing on, and the bell is amazing.I have only one complaint. The cymbal is unevenly weighted. Perhaps it is just the particular cymbal I have, but if I don't crank it down with the felt, the cymbal spins and tilts to an awkward angle at a specific spot on the cymbal because that side seems to be heavier. In other words, as you spin it, the cymbal never stays at the same angle. Quite annoying but I think I have gotten used to it.

          The Best Ride Ever

          By Emuddrumer

          from Wisconsin

          Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

          This is the best ride I have ever played. I play pop/rock/hardcore (underoath, the alomost, brighten ect...) and this cymbal has amazing action! You can play it soft and it cuts through, you can crash on it and it hardly wobbles! I crash on my ride constantly and hate it when cymbals just clang and then wash, but the Light Ride is supper smooth. My setup consists of two 20" rides (used as crashes) The 24" light ride as my main ride, and 14" hi hats.

          Best Possible Sound

          By Drum and Bass guy

          from Upstate NY

          Comments about Zildjian K Light Ride Cymbal:

          Excellent, excellent ride cymbal. Sound and tone go beyond words - can't describe it. Excellent for Rock or Jazz. Different tones available by striking different zones in the cymbal, not just middle and bell, like many rides. I have tried tons of ride cymbals, and this is it.
