I'm not a professional drummer, but that definitely seems to fit the pattern - if not an Acrolite (which I do have) it's a Supraphonic. Also, my "Zildjian" 20" ride is only technically a Zildjian - it's a very early Sabian AA Rock Ride, which at the time would have been equiviant to the Zildjian A Rock Ride. But if not the Rock Ride, it's the Ping Ride, Sweet Ride, or some variant of the K ride.Every professional drummer I know has a pair of New Beats, an Acrolite and most have a 20" Zildjian ride of some sort somewhere in their arsenal.
I’m 50/50 on that. I just don’t care for about 30 years of them from around 1985 to 2015. The new ones are an improvement on those. But I LOVE the early (read: light) ones. I only use mine about 1/8 of the time but when I do, they always make me smile.New beats put me to sleep zzzzz. Everyone has them... boring.
