Default NEW CYMBAL YEAH

So sorry for the caps i'm just so happy cause i got this cymbal for $147 including shipping.
It's a Lidjian 'A' series 20 medium ride.
I love it. It's very versitile and with my cymbal setup i can play everything from light jazz to hard hard rock.

anyway here are the pics

It's about twenty years old according to the guy on ebay that i bought it from.
It's great when i play jazz or funk it's a ride when i play hard rock it's a crash.
Like i said Before it's very versitile.

Beautiful, and great deal too! The "classic" ride cymbal. If I were you, I'd toss that Z custom and just run this one as your main ride... but that's just me.

Uh...thats a 2000s Zildjian ride. I had one myself. The laser engraving for the stamp and the new style lettering including the "A" by the medium ride. At most that thing is only a few years old but it doesn't matter if you like it. A 80s ride still had the stamps and block letters. And they didn't say "Avedis Zildjian" on the bottom they just read "Zildjian". That continued into the 90s as well. The thing with those cymbals is that some are terrible while others are wonderful, so hopefully you have a good one there. Mine was on the heavy side (almost like a Ping Ride) but it was really loud with a lot of sustain that built up. You couldn't crash it, and it was really bright and heavy, but not pingy enough... I'm happy with my Sweet Ride now though. I have played on 20" medium rides that are simply amazing though, most of those were from the 70s though.

I like it pretty well.
It's a feather weight compared to my z custom though.
10lbs Z custom vs. a much lighter (neverbeen wieghd so i don't know) A
I can crash it pretty well and it's not too washy.
