    Hand Hammered > Machine Pressed
    Cast > Sheet

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

    The only area I would catch you on there is teh lathed part. The Paiste RUDES are unlathed and they have some awesome crash rides.
    EDIT: But in general, yeah your right.


    And nova, great thread! Twas needed!

    Why not add the Zildjian/Sabian cymbals from the other thread? It's already well filled out.

    I'd put the Zildjian K Custom Dark Ride on there as well.

    It is very crashable at low volumes, but if you try and make it louder it seems reluctant and makes no increase. Not very good for loud playing, and too washy for rock/metal imo. However, if you want a jazzy, washy, low pitched ride for low volume playing it's great. The 'tah' sound you get from it is just awesome

    The brilliant model is polished so that it looks extremely shiny (and extra great imo). I don't know how much it affects the sound.. Maybe it's brighter..

    You have to order the brilliant one, right?

    I use a paiste 20" giant beat as my crash-ride. (I agree that derek smokes crack, this thing rules as a crash-ride ) It's got a softer, shimmery ping and a small bell so by itslef as a ride it could definitely leave some to be desired, but I LOVE it as an accent ride and it KILLS as a crash. It crashes with a deeper pitch than signatures or 2002s but when you "crash/ride" it on quarters or eighths it stays nice and bright and prevelant. When you really lay into it, it will open up very broadly with a moderate-loud volume.

    disagree here. As I understand it every Paiste cymbal aside from the twenty series are from "sheet" bronze. And obviously Paiste cymbals are top-of-the-line.

    I've always crashed on my rides for a variety of sound textures over the years and there is one thing that I've learned.....when you crash on a cymbal they all wear in and get a warmer tone over time. I started out using 22in Z custom rides (zildjian)..then for a short while a 22in ping ride (zildjian)...then a 20in crash/ride (zildjian), 22in Paiste signature power ride...and now a 22in a custom ping ride....and they always warm up.... If you want a higher wash then get a cymbal with a thicker taper...if you want a lower tone wash then get one with a thinner taper.

    What kind of crash-ride would give a sound comparable to what Brant Bjork uses in Green Machine (by Kyuss)? Here's a vid...

    I'm guessing something like a 22" sweet ride, but I'm not sure.
    Great song...great band....great drummer!!

    alright, i know this has probably been asked before, but it's saturday morning and i'm bored. can you guys give me suggestions for rides to look into that have the following...

    -easily opening crash that doesn't ring forever
    -stick definition that can at least cut through quieter passages in songs
    -a bell with a lot of "give" to it
