This is a sweet ride!

I have been a die hard fan of and used nothing but the original A series 21" Rock ride. However the project I am involved with now does some slightly more refined material and I was worried the Rock 21 might be a tad dark and heavy, so I decided to give the sweet ride a try. Great decision because without being too bright and harsh the sweet ride has a much more clear and defined "ping" to it yet can be leaned on just fine for the heavier stuff. A great versatile ride.

A Sweet, Sweet Ride

This cymbal is excactly what its name implies SWEET! I can't believe how great it sounds live through the mains. It blends well with all my other cymbals. It also crashes well. The only down side is the Bell. It's not as clean as I would like. Overall it's a great cymbal
Music background: Professional drummer/ drum instructor

The Zildjian 21 Sweet Ride is my favorite ride cymbal! Beautiful, medium-bright undertones, plenty of stick definition and versatility from the bell to the edge. Whatever your style, you'll love this ride!
