    Default What really is washing the ride

    Sometimes I see the word “Washing “ used but only hear about it when they are talking about the ride cymbal. Actually, What is washing? Thanks

    Its the opposite of ping. When you hit a ride theres two main noises, wash, which kinda sounds like when you crash a cymbal, and ping, which is what it sounds like when you hit, say the middle of the ride cymbal with the tip of your stick.

    Well, you see, due to their larger diameter, ride cymbals tend to collect a lot more dust and grime than a regular cymbal. So some drummers are always on the look out for ride cymbals that wash better.

    Ok, I’ll go and wash the ride cymbal now and see if it will eliminate that washing sound. Thanks....You are such a genius.

    Wash riding is when the drummer plays more on the edge of the ride therefore getting less ping and more of a roar. It is also called bash riding. Peace and goodwill.
