Generally speaking, it's widely considered that the old Zildjian A or K rides from the 40's and 50's are the most sought-after cymbals of all time.

Personally, even though I'm a Saluda endorser, my favorite ride of all time is the one cymbal that I didn't trade to get my new Saludas: my 1963 20" Zildjian A ride that was my dad's. Part of the sound of my current Saluda 20" Mist-X Ride was patterned after that cymbal.

I like the Zildjian 20" Ping. No matter what gig I've played, that thing always sounds perfect for the song. Just a perfect mix of ping and wash if you want either more or less.

My ride is the bright and dynamic Paiste Signature 20" Power Ride.
The bell on this is sick.

it's a toss up for me...currently i play a 22 k custom dark, but i have always been in love with the versitility of a 21 a sweet ride ...you can crash on it for as long as you want and go right back to the bell without losing any response from it.

Although I am currently alternating a 24" paiste 2002 and a 21" ZIldjian A sweet ride, I'd have to agree that a 60's zildjian A ride is the best. I have one that is riveted, I love it so much.

paiste makes a line called dark energy, and the 22" mark 1 ride is quite nice. it's dark and musical, but LOUD. and the 22" sabain david garabaldi ride is sweet too, nice crashing and riding. very controllable.
it's all about the groove

My favorite ride is my Mienl 24" Pure American Ride. Made for Chris Adler. It's awesome. Just don't crash on it, because it'll ring for ten minutes straight and it won't choke.
So many drums, So little time.

there isn't any A custom love....i have been using the 20" A Custom Medium Ride. Most versatile ride i've ever used. Just a beautiful sounding cymbal.
