Ride Pattern
Drum Set


The Articulation Ride is a visually unique and sonically versatile concept that was designed in collaboration with Zildjian Artist Aaron Spears.


This cymbal features a focused, clear stick definition, but the lathing near the edge and large cluster hammering increases the flexibility to allow it to open easily for quick, dry crashes that you would not expect from a ride with such great articulation.  Its bell also has strong body and great projection despite the cymbal"™s dark tonal characteristics.


The layered hammering pattern on the inner natural finish not only creates a dark, rich sound, but produces a striking dual-finish design with the lathed outer edge.


If you are looking for a ride that is engineered for both clarity and crash, end your search with the Articulation Ride.  Limit one per customer.
