Good all around rides are Zildjian A Medium Ride, or A Custom Medium Ride. If you want a heavier sound go with the A Custom Ping Ride or Z Custom Rock Ride. Most people I've heard of using ping rides have ultimately decided that it was too pingy though. I'm not really an expert on other brands, but I'm sure there are some other good ones out there.

I have the 21 inch Sabian AA Raw Bell Ride. Great ping, just dark enough, and is even slightly crashable. All around GREAT buy.

i recently bought a 16 and 18 inch a costom crashes and 14 inch mastersound hats (playing hardcore, screamo, punk, and indie). and i was wondering what ride would go good with those set. i am mainly leaning tword the sweet ride cause one of my favorite drummers ,travis barker, uses it and it sounds amazing. but also i am looking at the ping ride. it sounds great. it almost matches up to the sweet ride, i was wondering which one should i go for, they both cost the same and sound amazing.

can i get some help?
