What ride cymbals sound best when crashed? Do you know any non-thin ride that crashes well and has a solid ping?

Crashable ride- Meinl GenX 18 Signal crash/Club ride. High pitched crash, very washy sweet ride(great sound with small nylon tip and rivets).
Mapex, Istanbul Agop, Attack, Vater/O4D.

Zildjian A Sweet Ride is a ride that crashes well and never washes over sticking patterns

Meinl Raker 20" Medium. Has a really defined ping with a nice wash. Works well when crashed.

My K (new series w/ K on bottom side) 20" Ride. It should be in the medium weight range. It has a very nice dark crash. I also have 18" & 20" K crashrides (same series) but the ping on those isn't so defined. The 20" ride is my "if I were on a desert island..." cymbal. And if it wasn't good enough, I got it signed by Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez at clinic he did last year.

I have a 18" Sabian HH Duo ride that sounds really nice, but it doesnt mix well with brighter cymbals.

I use a 21" sweet ride and a 22" Bosphorous New Orleans series ride. both soud great when crashed

Also, I checked out an Istanbul 22" Traditional ride this weeked. It has a wonderful crash sound, but only in low volume situations.

Hmm Kind of an older post... but


I have been on the serch as of late for some new rides that are exactly as you described... Crashable but still good stick ping and definition.

I settled for the new Sabian 20" Vault ride.

Really sounds nice. Kind of a hybrid cymbal. They added some extra silver to the cymbal for the ping, finely lathed the top and gave it a briliant finsh, the bottom of the ride is completly un touched-unfinished. Looks like they just pulled it out of the cast...

So far I have been really happy with the versitality of it.

a crash is a crash and a ride is a ride...i see no reason to sacrifice sound qualities in one cymbal when i can have 2 better ones that will serve the same purpose.

that being said, ive always heard that the sweet ride is great for crashing. ive used one before and its near impossible to keep that thing from being drowned in wash during just normal riding and i had mixed feelings about it, but it sounded pretty good. i dont know of any other ones like this but i can say that the hh rwa bell dry ride is not what youre looking for. its thick, its heavy, and it wouldnt work for you.

I would have to agree that the Zildjian 21" Sweet Ride has to be the best sounding ride no matter what the application. It has to be the best crash sounding ride I've ever played while still being a great ride for lighter playing. Good stick definition at softer dynamics. The bell isn't bad either. Unforunately, I'm stuck with a Sabian HHX 20" Power Ride, which is loud as anything, but doesn't have the versatility I'm looking for. It's great for rock, though and the bell is absolutely killer! :twisted:
Skill tempered with relevance and simplicity.

I have a 21" sweet ride and it's easily the best cymbal in my set-up.
the ride quality is perfect for me.
the crash quality is beautiful, i'd use it mainly as a crash/ride if i could find another ride as good to use predominately as a ride.
The bell is solid when you hit it right.

The Paiste Giant Beat reissue series. The cymbals are not actually seperated into "crash" and "ride" cymbals. They only make 18 20 and 24s but there all good for both rides and crashes. My favorite is the 20" its perfect for crash/ride application.
