23K Sweet Ride


Hi All,

Bought this about six months ago. Have to hand it to Zildjian here, this is a fantastic instrument.

From a whisper to a roar, it does not lose stick definition and is able to perform at all levels of play.

Primarily a rock drummer, I've played funk, blues and even some jazz with this ride.

I do wish it was a bit darker, but after 30 years of playing, and over 15 rides in my collection, I can easily say it is my favorite cymbal. Particularly pleased with the powerful bell sound which can be lacking on many all purpose rides.

Happy Holidays to you all, and happy drumming!

$23,000 for a ride cymbal? Wow that's steep! I see this same cymbal online for less than $500!

That's a joke in case anyone missed it.

I've got the 21 K Sweet.
I wasn't too sure about it at first, but the more I play it, the more I like it.
It's becoming one of my favorites.
I'm hard pressed to think of any other that's as good of an all around ride.
