Ok so I'm totally converted to this cymbal. Its serving me as a 2nd crash option, a Crash-Ride option and now also I've started using it as my main ride instead of my 20" alpha!

My question is, when I (eventually!) do a gig, could I really use this cymbal as my main ride? It's 16" !! So I think maybe it won't cut, or folks might wonder where's this guys ride cymbal hahah!

Any thoughts?

Well, the pitch is way too high for my liking, but if that is the sound you like, and it works for the music, go for it.

I agree 16" would probably be way too high pitch for my preference as well. However, if it works for you go for it. As for using a Rude as a ride I have a Rude 20" Thin Crash that I'll sometimes use as a 2nd crash/ride.
