My school has a cymbal that we use as a ride, and I love the sound. Unfourtunately, the label wore off it YEARS ago. I'm looking for a cymbal with a very warm sound and medium long decay. Any help?

You can always trace the cymbals history. Find out who bought it or brought it and ask them if they know. Also the cymbal is likely to have an engraved logo, so look for it. Make some quality pictures of the logo and send it to the manufacturer- that could help a lot.

Its most likely an old Zildjian. They dont really make those cymbals anymore which is a shame.
