The Sabian HH Raw Bell Dry Ride is in the Ping Ride ballpark but is very musical. I'm never letting go of mine.
RBDR 21 came out and then it became ‘Phil’s choice’ if I recall, never a developmental thing he did w/ Sabian. Mine got stolen long ago
Yes, the PC ride IS an HH Raw Bell Dry Ride.
Obviously, if you own one you probably think they're "cherry picked" examples, but the traditional-finish ones I've heard are all pretty consistent, and consistently good sounding.
I have one of these in the brilliant finish (the regular HH model not the PC ride). Picked it up used many years ago and much like you I do not have any intentions of ever selling it. The heaviest ride that I own and every time I use it, I find myself smiling. Mine is a 21". Don't know if they all came in that size.
