Looking for a Pingy Ride

I would argue, however, that it did one other thing extremely well, it made me want to purchase better cymbals.


For sure. The cymbal is useless except for ping. A Zil-Bel will do the same thing in a much smaller package.

Agree with your assessment of the K Custom Hybrid, except for the bell sound. My bell sounds horrible. Very weak with a narrow sweet spot. Bought the cymbal as part of a pack I bought online, so I didn't have the benefit of hearing it in advance. Perhaps I just ended up with a bad cymbal. Happens.

The Sabian Raw Bell Dry Rides are not only pingy, but also very musical. If you like pingy, you really can't go wrong with these. They come in all 4 flavors: AA/AAX/HH/HHX. I had the HH first but traded it for the AA which is a little more lively. They all have killer bells.

Damn straight.

My AA Sabian Heavy Ride has a devastating bell.

Had a Zildjian Z 21"Mega Bell Ride. Best "Ping" Cymbal I have ever owned.
