soo i've been talking back and forth with jaime about cymbal trade-ins and i'm thinking about getting a ride...

i'm one of the rising crowd of players who like to use rides as crashes

i was wondering if a crash/ride would be best?

but i was also thinking, would it sound like a good ride while riding on it and have a nice, pingy bell?



thank you

For a crash-able ride you would need to buy a Thin ride otherwise you would really need to beat the crap out of a heavier ride so it could open up like a crash.

As for riding on it, it would most likely sound like an K or K custom from Zildjian. And the bell most likely it will not be extremely loud or pingy so just buy a V-Bell to stack on it.

not much difference there. a crash/ride IS a thin ride. what kind of crash/ride? these are all very loosely-defined flexible terms we're talking about here. some crash/rides could be thicker than some thin rides. some thin rides could be thicker than some crash/rides. you need to get out to a store with some cymbals and play them and determine what kind of bell size/shape, bow shape (the shoulder of the cymbal), and what weight you're looking for.

well, Alan_, as of now my discription is very vague of what i want in a ride cymbal seeing as though i am now very good at describing cymbals, but i am slowly learning to mean of all these cymbal sound adjectives

but as the go out to the store idea, i'm going to take you up on that, but i am talking to jaime so i'm going to see what he has to say first

he seems pretty damn knowledgable. it would just be weird to me, even at this stage in the game, to try and describe a cymbal in words and have any idea what was actually going to come back to me.
