AzFaz, how much crash sound can you get from your A Custom ride?

Is it quite washy? or does it have a crisp sound to it?

xdoseonex - cheers!! are the a customs on yours similar? it looks like an awesome setup :)

Reaper33X - i used to have a 20'' a custom ride & it was INSANE!! it was like using a crash & it didnt do justice (for me) as a ride so i swapped it for a medium which is still washy & crashes nicely along the edge, but has more 'ping' on the main body of the ride (not enough to make it a ping ride tho). if you want a ride that crashes well along the edge, go for the medium. if you want a cymbal that youre gonna use as a crash that pronounces a VERY loud & sharp one then go for the 'standard' ride!!

Az, I'll give it a week to consider (end of the month=funds are thin)
Can you still get a fair amount of ping near the bell of the one you're selling?

sorry i didnt read that before! the a custom ride would be perfect as a crash ride rather than a primary ride :)
the bell pings extremely well & the area near to the bell does have a fair amount but only the area about 2 inches away from it then the pings become washy & 'blended'
can you email me when youve made a decision? ill try & record playing the different parts of it on weds & ill send what comes out well to you yeh?
