        Comments about Zildjian ZBT20R-X Ride Cymbal:

        It's not a cymbal that I would use for recording, because it lacks the "sparkle" found in Zildjain's "A," or "K" line, but for the price, it represents a true value. The lathing ends about an inch inside the rim, and to my eye it isn't as deeply cut as my (more expensive) 21" ride, and that may account for the lower price point.

        All in all it represents an opportunity to own Zildhain quality and craftsmanship at a bargain price.

              Comments about Zildjian ZBT20R-X Ride Cymbal:

              Don't expect anything other than a good sounding ride. Cuts through the other instruments with very well defined sound. Bell is great, and ping is loud enough to lead.
              got this on a deal, first time out of the box was at band practice, so I didn't know what to expect. I was surprised at how well it sounded on the first song.
              as a crash, the sound is loud and sustained, and "off." Sorry, no other word comes to mind, but the tone just doesn't sound right for a crash.

                  I had a 22 inch Zild and it was stolen back when dinosaurs ruled the world. I morphed out of drumming to piano and guitar but have gone back and putting my old set back together to use in my studio. I saw this cymbal and thought I would give it a try. I'm very impressed with it. Fits right in with my older Zilds.

                      I have been looking for a decent ride cymbal for the practice kit in my studio, the only cymbal I was lacking. This deal was a no-brainer. Acceptable sound for practice/rehearsals. The bell on this one is not particularly good, others may be better, but overall, I'd recommend it. Especially to beginners on a budget or those who may have to let others play their set.

                                So, it was a "DOORBUSTER" deal and really cheap, but nicer than expected. I use it for my outdoor kit, playing in sun, heat, humidity, and yuk. Compares nicely to a Sabian B8 ride I'd borrowed. I use nylon tips, and this ZBT has good-to-very-good stick definition and low wash buildup. Surprising as Zildian ZBT didn't use to have this quality and thickness that I remember. A win-win for me.

                                  Comments about Zildjian ZBT20R-X Ride Cymbal:

                                  I ordered this because of the (ridiculously)low price and to replace a slightly cracked (and expensive) 20" Paiste ride that I have played since the 1970's. I'm no longer playing in clubs but I wanted something different and thought I'd give this a shot. When it arrived I took it out of the box and swapped it out with the 20" Paiste. I was pleasantly surprised. Clean stick definition, and waaaaay less wash build-up than I expected from an economy cymbal. And the wash was not overly loud, or messy or unpleasant in my opinion. The stick ping was higher pitched than my older Paiste, which I like and prefer in general. I liked the bell...clean and loud, again a little higher in pitch. I can't say at this point how it will sound behind a band or to record...I'll check that out ASAP. But for sure it's an outstanding value for a beginner, and as a former semi pro player, a good value for me as well. I have a strong suspicion I would use this if I were still playing gigs.
