Zildjian K-Custom Ride 20"
Robert814, 03.09.2014
Loads of ping, loads of ding, loads of power, just a little bit of wash. Beautifully finished and buffed to a sparkling shine. Similar only to the (now obsolete) Paiste Signature dry heavy ride 20", but with slightly more wash. If you're playing something louder and heavier - Gimme Gimme Gimme That Ding! Having tried this out now, I must add that it needs a heavy stick to really bring out the full tone. I feel that oak is required rather than hickory as well. So far the only stick to achieve this for me is the Pro-Mark PW515W Joey Jordison Shira Kashi Oak.

Almost love it!...
01.09.2015
This cymbal is used my my favorite drummer Matt Greiner and always loved the sound of it! the stick definition is amazing and feels great to play on. It's a beautiful looking cymbal too and one of the few that when you hold by your side with a fully extended cymbal stand in the the other hand you want to scream, 'THIS IS SPARTA!!!'

I haven't given this full ratings because my band 1440 needs a ride that's more crashable and that's one thing this isn't made for. The enjoyment I get from it more than compensates and hey... that's what the crashes are for!

Zildjian K-Custom Ride
Hans583, 28.03.2012
so muss ein Ride klingen! habe es mit wirklich vielen Rides verschiedener Hersteller verglichen, und bin schlussendlich bei Zildjian hängen geblieben. Der Sound entspricht genau meinen Vorstellungen: schönes, lautes Click- Geräusch und einen nicht allzu langen Nachklangt. Die glocke klingt sehr sauber und definiert. Der Preis ist nicht gerade als billig zu bezeichnen, jedoch ist es wirklich jeden Euro wert. Ich möchte es auf keinen Fall mehr missen!

Puissante, pas épuisante
K rider, 05.10.2019
Cymbale très lourde, peu de wash par conséquent. Un ping précis, sans harmoniques trop aiguës gênantes. Elle passera bien dans le mix pour des musiques musclées, sera un peu hors-sujet dans un contexte strictement swing ou bop. Légèrement matée, elle délivre un son medium et pas trop envahissant adapté aux musiques latines. Il faut contrôler sa puissance, et on ne peut pas la crasher, mais c'est une excellente seconde ride pour un répertoire où j'ai besoin que les rythmes syncopés soient clairement audibles quand je n'utilise pas une cloche.
