      I bought this ZBT Zildjian ride probably about 6 or more years ago. I went in to a music store, with cash in hand...and was shopping for "the perfect cymbal" despite the price. I had saved up about 300 dollars and was ready. Every high dollar ride I tried out sounded like crap. All muddy and not distinct. I needed something that could "PING" and cut...I play ROCK music, but play with a bit of a FUNK and even DISCO style most of the time. Anyway, finally I tried a ZBT and boom!!! that was exactly the sound I was looking for. I have all other "A" ZILDJIAN cymbals, and paid more for my 10" splash than I did for this RIDE. It's awesome. I had money left over for other things. I suggest you do the same. I toured for 3 years (3 nights per week) with this one, and now I use it weekly at church. It still sounds great and has no damage at all. It looks like crap though...I never clean it.Buy this one, save your hundreds for some "A" Zildjian splashes like I did.

      This cymbal is great for the price but probably not worth the money by itself. I got it in a pack and overall it was worth it. This cymbal rings like no other! As you begin to play it has a nice tone, but after a few seconds there is a loud ringing sound that builds and gets really annoying. I have 6 pieces of duct tape on the bottom to shut it up a bit. Overall no that bad, but i would recommend saving for an A Custom or a 20" ZHT would also be a good choice with great sound for the price. And the ZHT does not build a bad ring.

      Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Ride Cymbal:

      The sound of this cymbal is like a shattering window not a somewhat rfined ping. Don't EVER try to do any suspended cymbal swells on it, you might make someone deaf. This is barely better than a piece of sheet metal.

      i bought this for my first ride. it was alright. it has a pretty nice high "ping" bell. but it rings wayy too much. but clamp some foam on or squirt somesilcone on the bottom or something. then it's the bow is nice and smooth.

      Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Ride Cymbal:

      I bought this ride along with my set of zildjiansit sounds awesome, its loud and very good for rock and metal. the only problem is that it rings a little to much, but thats not a problem because you could always put some Moongel to damp the high endother then that it is awesome!

      Absolutely Not Worth The Price

      By NeilP12321

      from Michigan

      Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Ride Cymbal:

      I bought this ride used from a friend because I was short on money. I've had the ride for almost two years now.Let me begin with the good things:The Good: It sounds quite nice! I was actually impressed from all the terrible thing's I've heard about the ZBT series. The bell sounds wonderful and the ride has very good ring. It's also quite good for recording. The Bad: It's not worth the price, whatsoever. ZBT is a starter series from Zildjian and yet they price the ZBT so high! I definitely suggest the Paiste PST 3 Ride. It's about half the price and double the quality!The Ugly: It's a very nasty looking ride. It's very reflective new but the more you touch it the more it turns into a smudged mirror. The gold finish was already coming off when I bought it and has only continued to fall off as I've played it.Overall... I'd say it's not worth your money. Alternatives: Meinl HCS Ride, Paiste PST 3 Ride,

      Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Ride Cymbal:

      It sounds nice when you hit it, but there is an etremely long sustain after you hit it. my advice is that you should save up a little more money for some other kind of cymbal, a K or A custom. But if you're low on cash, then this cymbal is ok.

      I just got this cymbal 3 days ago at my local music store. i was on a low budget and tired to get something hiquality and low in price, and this was it. the down side to this cymbal is the long sustain after you hit it, but some moongel gal pads help reduce it to about half the ringing tim as before. if your low on cash and need something that works, get this cymbal.

      It Could Be Better

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Zildjian ZBT Rock Ride Cymbal:

      I have had mine since October 2007 and it has stayed sturdy and not cracked or anything and thats because it is so thick and heavy... which to me is a down side, because I like ride cymbals that are pingy and have a nice bell. This however is very heavy and has more of a low pitched ping. It is technically high pitched but as for the "ping" sound, it doesn't come out to great. It also rings for a while after you hit it, which can be annoying. I'd say overall three stars because it's not entirely bad.
