    Medium weight rides can produce an excellent crash sound. I own the 20" 2002 ride, and it's pretty washy. I don't play a lot of repetitive crash/riding unlike most members who are asking Qs about crashable rides these days (hardcore, punk etc), but for a big sounding crash after a powerful fill, I'd use the 2002 ride.

    As for riding crashes, I'd definately go with some big ones. Traditionals crashes and dark energy crashes would probably work great for ride patterns in jazz/bop/latin applications.

    Big, warm chinas are great for riding. My 20" novo is controllable if not hit too hard, and I can even use the bell if I want to..

    Again, sorry.

    no worries man.Anyone who needs paiste advice seek out this man he knows what hes talking about

    OK? The GB's are absolutely excellent crash rides! Open up really easily with a great, warm, roaring wash.

    i use the word ok because i dont like the ride qualities of them.they are great crashs but a great crash ride to me is a versatile cymbal

    woah it got stickied pretty good info i have a sweet ride and a byzance 20 heavy. i can't find a good spot for both of them on my drumset. suggestions? i'd rather have my meinl as the main ride but its an inch smaller... kinda odd having the smaller cymbal under the bigger.

    some zildjian help
    here are some crashable rides...

    Z Custom 19" Thrash Ride...i wouldnt try any others
    Avedis 21" Sweet Ride
    Most K Line rides have some crashability
    Most K Customs are like that too
    A Custom Pings can but its kinda clangy
    A Custom Mediums And Projections have some crash abilities, but i would stick with Avedis
    Many Avedis rides except the ping ride will prob sound alright crashing
    i reccomend trying cymbals out before buying them
    I used to use this forum for quite a long time, took a break from 2010-late 2012. Hoping to be more active again!

    i still think its weird to have the smaller ride as a main ride. and bigger cymbals above it..hmm

    I know this thread is about rides, but I'd like to hear an A Custom 20" Medium Crash played as a ride...
    At that size and the heavier weight of that line, I bet it would make a great crash/ride... Of course there'd be a decent amount of wash, but most non-ping rides do anyway.

    I'm not a crash ride type player but I would say generally the trend goes:

    For Crashability:
    Thin > Thick
    Lathed > Non Lathed
    Small Bell > Big Bell
    Larger > Smaller
    Expensive > Cheap
    Hand Hammered > Machine Pressed
    Cast > Sheet

    Also I have a K Custom Session Ride... not very crashable
