    Default The Ride Cymbal Show

    Hello forum denizens,

In this show we each talk about our favorite ride cymbals for different styles of music. Give us a listen and see if any of your favorites show up.

    You're asking for a 1-hour and 34-minute commitment here; can you sum up what it is you talk about in a sentence or two, giving more specifics than you already have?

    You piqued my interest talking about the Constantinople Bounce Ride. I'd never heard of it before & it sounds like a good one to me.

    Like Ryan said, it was a big commitment to listen to the whole thing, so I had it in the background as I worked yesterday. I may have missed it, but I don't think you mentioned the K Custom Hybrid Rides. For my money, that is one of the best all-around rides out there. It has the perfect balance of wash & stick definition, crashes nicely (I don't crash on mine but a lot of people look for that these days) & a very pleasing bell sound. The only issue I have with it is that the bell is not very loud. A mic on it takes care of that for recording/mixing purposes, but still, it'd be nice if the bell was louder. Overall, though, it's a really great ride cymbal.

    The K hybrid ride is a killer ride. I find it pretty versatile. It's definitely a washy ride but i find that you can get a lot of different sounds out of it depending on where you're hitting. It can cover from washy to more pingy & it's a very musical sound imo. If you're looking for a ride that covers a lot of sonic space it will do the job.

    I have the 21" and I very much agree with this. Even though it is a bit washy when laying into it on the lathed portion, it's not so overbearing that the stick definition is lost. I use mine is blues, classic and more modern rock, country and some pop stuff and it fits well in all of those genres. A buddy of mine even used it for metal and it worked decent there as well, aside from the bell lacking a bit.

    And as Mike said they crash beautifully. I'd be ok using mine solely as a crash and I'm not a big fan of the sound crashing a ride usually produces.
