I honestly can't say enough good about this ride cymbal. It's far more versatile than I expected it to be (hanging pull chains from its bell makes for a killer sizzle ride), and its unbeatable ping and glassy overtones allow it to cut through the mix without overpowering it. As for the bell, its got a quick and powerful attack and doesn't ring for too long afterwards. It's an all-around beautiful ride cymbal, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade their ride.
This ride cymbal sounds GREAT with any cymbal setup! I have this as my only B20 bronze cymbal so far, with my 14" ZBT crash, 18" ZBT crash-ride, 10" ZHT china splash, and 14" ZHT Mastersound hi-hats, and it blends very well with them. It has great ping, and a killer bell that will blow your eardrums out with its volume, but doesn't ring for too long afterwords. It is surprisingly versatile; sounding great for anything from jazz to Latin to metalcore with the proper stick sizes for each genre. Best ride cymbal out there!
A powerful compliment to your cymbal setup ! The photos on the website really don't do this cymbal justice . It's heavy in weight, excellent stick definition,cutting bell sound, works well as a huge crash ! GET ONE !
