contrary to what most reviews say...the body of this cymbal does not sound that bad at all. its no a series sweet ride but its still an okay sounding body to a ride cymbal. and obviously if you buy a mega bell cymbal your main concern is the bell. the bell is amazing and no matter how much youre rocking out to a song...youll never miss it. and the body though it is pretty good it's not too versatile and if youre playing stuff that requires a subtle sounding body on occasion...yeah, this cymbals not for you but it still sounds pretty good. great bell, pretty good body.

i love zildjian cymbals. i've been playing percussion for 10 years. this cymbal disgusts me. listen to the audio clip, then go listen to a zildjian medium ride or *especially* a zildjian ping. the mega bell ride is a great idea, honestly it is. but the fact that the bell is so big, and the cymbal is so heavy, gives it an awful sound. since the bell is so big (which makes the rest of the cymbal very short), this cymbal has no room to ring or make a good sound. i gave this cymbal an 8 in quality because it was built by zildjian, and its thickness would make sure that it would never break. but $*** for a cymbal that sounds like it should come with a starter set is a huge waste of money. for the same price, pick up a regular zildjian ride, or if you really want a cutting bell sound, buy a zildjian ping ride. in the end, the only people that should buy this cymbal are people that find it somewhere for $*, or drummers that somehow break a lot of ride cymbals and don't really care how their cymbals sound.

Mega Bell Ride review

By Mark of Crimson Head/BVB

from Darlington, WI

See all my reviews

I've owned this ride for 6-7 years. The sound is nice and clear, and that big bell is very very nice. I love it, but just recently the sound has gotten worse because I've found 2 cracks forming on the outside. So I'm getting rid of it, but I liked it so much I'm buying a new one really soon here from Musician's friend. I'm a Death Metal/Black Metal/Thrash Metal & Punk/Metal drummer, so I guess I hit pretty hard, and the shows I've done will pay for it. I can't wait for my next one.

Best Ride

By www.myspace.com/malitiaofminnesota

from Richfield MN

See all my reviews

This ride is by far the best I have ever used for Thrash Metal. I play in the Minnesota Metal Band Malitia and I have 0 complaints about this ride. It will NEVER break, it cuts through everything. and it doesnt sound weak like a lot of rides do. The Ride SOUNDS metal. So if you play real metal youll love this ride.

However, I played a show in a open airy room with a lot of sounds bouncing around and had to stop using this things massive bell or have the audience's ear drums blown out however if you like metal, your a chris adler fan, or u just like huge a** bells...buy this cymbal... (and make sure you have a really sturdy stand cuz this things a beast)

Mega Bell is sick!

By Bonwilk

from San Francisco

I can actually hear my ride cut through everything including a nuclear blast. The bell sounds like the gate at a train crossing when you hit it with the shoulder. But if you're looking for wash on classic rock tunes, this aint the one. For playing Alice in Chains type music however, this will blow your bandmates away

Amazing ride

A got this a year ago, and its sound is awesome, the bell has a really high pitch that stands out perfectly. Heavy Ride, for Heavy Music. One of the best ride cymbals, if not the best, that Zildjian has ever made.

At first this ride took a little getting used to but after a couple practices with it, I got it and now I love this ride. It really stands out even with a whole band playing and it just sounds amazing!
