Default My new Jazz Ride!!!!

Here it is! After months and months of researching for a new ride that is more of a Jazz ride than anything else, but one that also could be used for funk, latin and some rock, I have settled on the 21" K Custom Special Dry Ride. BEAUTIFUL sound, great wash and good stick definition. The Perfect cymbal for me. With the A Customs, it's like night and day, but works in a strange way. I'm going to buy some fibreskin heads for the toms and bass soon to complete the set up.

cool that you have what you are looking for after so much research :), hope it serves you well.

I had a question: how do you define 'stick definition', I don't know the translation in Dutch and I can't think of what it means exactly. Could someone please tell me?

Thats the exact problem im going through. Im looking for cymbals that i can use for jazz as well as other styles. In particular, the ride has been the hardest choice. How are you liking your K custom ride?

Stick definition is the clarity of the stroke's initial attack. Bad stick definition, for example, would mean that the attack is overpowered by the cymbal's wash.

Killer, I got one a couple of months ago. It's amazing how having a 'proper' jazz ride can inspire your work ethic. My jazz riding's come on leaps and bounds since having it.

That said, it's utterly useless in any sort of live rock context. Being so dry, it has no chance competing against guitars.

Another interesting thing - it'll eat the bead of your stick in minutes. I did 20 minutes of sprinting on it using a virgin Vater Piccolo (very durable stick) aand the bead went from spherical to torpedo. The wood residue is visible on the dull finish of the cymbal . Can't complain when it sounds so good though.

I just went to the store, tried it out and bought it. The cymbal is similar to the Dry Light Ride. Sounds so nice, and I know what ye mean Jonescrusher when you say that the proper equipment can inspire your work ethic....it really does.

Karl, i've been so into Jazz these past couple months. It's all i've been working on, but i've been having problems keeping that swing ostanato while doing different things with my left hand on the snare. It's challenging, but fun.

Thanks fer the comments.
