Good ping sound, and the bell is unbeatable--but it has that washy sound underneath when riding on it which hurts the clarity. I use it as an auxiliary ride on the left side of my set, and it's perfect in that role.
I have a 22 model of this ride - it is awesome, it really the most musical heavy ride ever made by cymbal companies, very pity that there is no more 22 model, because you should really love it
bell is not sharp enough 4 me. great for studio or jazz sounds just doesn't project like it mega bell cousin. definately an indoor cymbal.
my all time favorite ride cymbal.this is the most versatile ride ever it can be used 4 everything from jazz to rock,with its smooth sounding surface and absolute cutting bell,this is definitly the holy grail of ride cymbals
After trying for ages to find the perfect ride, this has it all for me,clear stick sound , little wash and spread, great bell.
Looks fantastic as well.
