      OVERVIEW

      Excellent all-purpose ride. Strong, clean mid-range sound suitable for all styles of music.

      For their ZHT series Zildjian chose Ultimate Sheet Bronze, an alloy with a higher tin content for enhanced low- and mid-frequencies. This extraordinarily musical metal is combined with ultra-modern manufacturing techniques and extensive hammering to create value-priced cymbals with sounds that are both modern and traditional.

      The ZHT Medium Ride is a sheet bronze cymbal of amazing expressiveness.

      This truly is an excellent all-purpose ride cymbal! I picked one up because of the price (even though I have many other rides) and I am very pleased! Most Medium Rides sound lame and generic, even on high end models. This one is anything but! I would say this is definitley on the heavier side of Medium. I would classify it as medium-heavy. It sounds like a rock ride would (nice and strong bell, bright ping, clean stick definition), but it's easier to control and more musical than a rock ride. In the store, it reminded me a lot of an A. Zildjian Ping Ride, with just a little bit more "bite" and "oomph". When I got it home, I compared it side by side with my K. Custom Ride, and they sounded nearly identical! I tried out 3 of these at the store, and I would say they were all medium heavy, so I don't think I just got a heavier than normal one. A very versatile ride cymbal at a bargain price! What more could you want. Nab this one!

      This cymbal has a mid-range pitch, LONG sustain and is definately loud. I'm not big on the sustain and would like more stick definition in a ride. This one is ultra-ringy and I think it loses its definition because of the ring.

              I needed a ride for a second kit, saw this on sale, and after researching decided to give it a try. It's a nice ride. Brighter than many, but good tone and responsive. Sounds from the bell are fine, but nothing to get excited about. Overall, this is better than a ZBT or B8, and often about the same price, so it's good for a beginner, as a step up from entry level cymbals, or as a backup.

                    i originally bought this cymbal because i needed an inexpensive ride cymbal so keep me going until i had the money to buy the one i wanted. but after about a week of playing this cymbal i grew to love it. it has a very clean and powerful bell sound on it. which means that you wont need a zilbel if you buy this ride. a great cymbal

                    This ride cymbal is nothing short of amazing. the ride is glassy, the bell is sharp and the crash is bright. this cymbal is perfect for metal and rock bands. i would buy this cymbal if it was $400 easily. a great cymbal to add to your kit

                    This cymbal sounds great for rocking out loud until you switch to say a hi hat beat and the ring sounds deap and not bad but in my opinion too gongy

                    the best ride none to man!!!!!!!!!!! I'm in a band name screw sober and this ride is the bomb. i play heavy metal, and screamo and i use loud cymbals to cut through my loud playing. i got the older version of this cymbal and its 2 years old and not a single scratch or dent on it! i use it more than my alpha series slipknot metal ride. if you set it low to the ground or at a steep angle , you can hit it with the side of your stick and it brings out a huge wall of sound that you can hear over our 35" speakers!! but this the best ride ever on the face of the world!!!!!!!!!!

                    This is a pretty good ride. Especially for the price. This ride gives you a nice clean ping and a pretty good crash sound. It rings out a little too much and it builds this overtone but it's not too bad. Good bell, it's pretty loud and big. Nice ride altogether.

                    Comments about Zildjian ZHT Medium Ride Cymbal:

                    I recently put together a kit and spent a few hours researching cymbals. My critera for a ride cymbal were: under $200, crashable, and washy with some stick definition. The Zildjian ZHT medium ride works for me. I can get 3 different sounds out of this cymbal but I have to be super careful about techniqe if I want to use it for anything other than a crash. I can get a woody sticking sound with mid wash when I tap the top about 4 inches from the edge. I can get a solid, suspended-cymbal-like wash out of it if I use controlled, angled strokes on the edge. And I can get a brain numbing, slightly ringy, full crash out of it if I whack it with any force whatsoever.For the money, this cymbal is excellent if you play it with finess. I'd especially reccommend it if you wash and crash your rides.

                    I have owned this cymbal for about 2 months now and iam satisfied with it. When I first put this thing on my boom stand and played. MAN WAS IT LOUD. But after a good week of playing the sound decreased. But not only that it took for ever to decay. And it leaves stick marks fairly quick. But after a good month of playing it. I came to relize I bought a good ass cymbal compared to other ones. EXPECIALLY FOR THE PRICE. After reading my review dont feel like buying it because after a good week this baby sounds just as good as a A Custom.
