Fantastic Low Volume Cymbal

By Utah Jazz-er

from Logan, UT

See all my reviews

This is the best sounding cymbal at low volumes. I play in a three piece jazz group at weddings. This cymbal performs beautifully. The overtones are pure and less complex than a K Zildjian. The cymbal is very thin (probably one of the thinnest in the A Zildjian line) and also crashes beautifully. I tried two cymbals at the store and one was noticeably lower in pitch than the other. If you can, try a few out. Each is a carefully crafted and unique instrument as all cast cymbals are.


Great Sizzle

By wannabe Tony Williams

from Vienna, VA

I bought the Zildjian A Series and CIE Vintage Ride and I loved it immediately. Plays great at lower volume, good wash and crash without losing articulation. I even drilled three holes in it and made it a sizzle and it sounds great. I've got a K Custom Dry Light Ride and a K Ride I use on the right and I put this one on the left because it is so good as a crash too. Great cymbal, try it as a sizzle it sounds great.


Great jazz cymbal!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Just bought the A. Zildjian & Cie Ride. Very nice sounding cymbal. Just like the Zildjian web site describes, sparkling and sizzling. The crash sound is wonderful! Very full sounding. This compliments my 22" Left Side Ride very well: one dark/dry and the other bright. You can get different sounds depending on how far from the bell you play. However, rotating the cymbal changes the sound very little. This is a very thin cymbal. Just enough wash w/ a bright stick sound. I've tried crash/rides, but found most to washy for me.


Best Ride Ever!

By hxHImHsBe

from San Pedro, CA

great classic 'A' sound. rides like no other, while still crashable. bright, explosive, yet still has character. Expensive, yet soooo worth it. i had to wait 6 months for it, but man was it worth it. while i play jazz, anyone looking for a good blues/rock cymbal. this is a unique sound that brings back great memories of when music was good. this cymbal is the only one i have ever had, non-drummers (non-musicians even) comment on how good it sounds. this cymbal will grant you the respect of any drummer for its classic tonality, yet fits so well in any musical setting that you will be amazed how you ever got along without it.


A wonderful cymbal

By Monday317

This plate has really intense ping/stick definition. Changes character as you ride from bell to edge, though the bell is very poor by itself. Tremendous crash, and can easily be used as a crash/ride. Great for pop, oldies, bebop, jazz. Cuts VERY well, though not the loudest cymbal ever made. Highly recommended, and well underrated.
