I used to have a 20" A medium ride that sounded awesome when crashed. It was stolen from me and I really wish I had it back.

20" Sabian AA Rock crash.

I know it's not a ride, but it does exactly what you said you're looking for.

I'm a big fan of the 22" Zildjian K Custom Dark Ride - It crashes hard and fills the room but stays out of the way of the vocals. I use it in most of my band's songs as a crashing ride.

I used a 22" Zildjian (K?) Heavy Ride in a session last week, and I was really digging how it sounded as well, very similar to the K Custom Dark but with more stick definition. I might pick one up soon.

great suggestions...all of them. of course cymbals are a matter of flavor...my taste buds lean toward K customs...i love the dark tones. and for me, the bigger the better, but you got to know how to match them with the rest of the set.

anyone ever heard of Amedia? I just stumbled across their stuff. their legend series has some nice crash/ride sounds, the smaller the size the more befitting of crash status. they have sound clips here: http://www.pacifier.com/~drum/rtsc/html/ahmet.html

but honestly, i think i like their 20" Antique ride best. <a href="http://www.pacifier.com/~drum/rtsc/sound/amediacymbals/antique20.mp3">the bell is killer</a>, the 22" and 21" sound pretty much the same, but the 20" sticks out in my mind in terms of character. i doubt it would sound as sweet when crashing, so that's why i suggested the Legend Series. i said i'm into dark sounds, but this one is kind of brighter.
