    Wow that looks amazing! Can he preserve/restore logos? I'd love to get my Z Mega Bell, Z Custom Hats, and A Custom Ride restored but I want to keep the logos, even though they're kind of faded.

    I don't think he does that. You can contact Ryan Lowe (ROMAN) about logos. He can do all sorts of neat screen printing.

This may sound crazy, but like my other two rides, I really prefer the 21 inch diameters. To me, that size gives a little more then the 20 and the 1 inch smaller then the 22 gives me better cymbal placement on the kit. If Zildjian makes a 21" A Custom Ping Ride in the future, I'll be purchasing one. Regardless, great looking. Ride you have there Matt.
    Thanks TM!

    Thank you! Many years ago, I had the 20" Avedis Ping Ride (traditional finish), and it sounded great. I wanted to get a different ride with more wash, while retaining stick definition... here it is.

    This cymbal has been selected by Mama's Music Store (my local store) team in the Zildjian factory, i'm so happy, it sounds beautiful!

    That does look tasty!
    I wish Zildjian re-introduced the 20" A China Low again. I have the 18" and looking for a 20" (have found a couple on eBay but they are a) too far away or b) looking really beat up.

    Chris from Drums on Sale removed the logos with acetone, then buffed and polished the cymbals on a lathe. That's how he did all of my cymbals.

    He's great... check with him before you make any major purchases of Zildjian, Sabian, Meinl, Gretsch, Ludwig, Pearl, or even Evans or Remo.
