    With the ride cymbal, I don’t like large ones. I like the heavier weight, the ping and the definition on the 20” A Ride. Just sounds really well and easy to tuck in the there with my set up.

    I have owned 2 of those cymbals at some point or another, and I liked them both. Got rid of the china to help pay bills, as I hardly ever needed a china for any music I played. Solid choices though, Mr. Ray!

    Thank you, sir. I appreciate that. I’m very picky when it comes to cymbal sounds. Zildjian needs to make some heavier weight K’s. A K Custom Dark Ride with a big bell and medium heavy weight would be awesome.

    Anytime! More variety of weights in the K and K Custom lines would be super nice. The K Custom Medium isn't all that heavy tbh, and they discontinued the K Heavy Ride, if I'm not mistaken.

    I love Zildjian as they sound great, you can get them anywhere and they are priced right, but they need some help in the ride department.

    i have the 20" ac ping ride my self, it was my go to ride for years.. (currently using 21"ac 2oth anniversary rides now) you might wanna give an ac ping ride that a shot...i only say this cause i'd think the ac ping ride might blend more with its ac brethren the rest i gotta are pretty nice choices i still rock the projections as well ..all solid choices ,i think you'll be happy
