Why would that be wrong? If it gives you the sound you're looking for, then by all means. I take it the ping ride is probably too heavy for what you want? I've had cymbals like that and I've gotten rid of them. All of my cymbals need to be thin enough to crash and thick enough to ride. I feel ripped off if it only does one thing good ;)

thanks Bo, I had just walked away form the kit when i wrote that...it was kind of " love talk" ya know. I just really surprised how much I get out of this cymbal I bought really cheap. I only been playing year now, and I'm starting to " hear " what I like...also just bought a 13" x 6" black panther snare..........sigh

China were originally used by western drummers as rides.

It wasn't until the 70's that chinas became more often used as crashes.
