Not the loudest ride cymbal so it sits in and under the music, not on top of it. Great bell. I'm having fun with it.
    I played one in highschool. Beautiful cymbal.

    I have a 20 K" and a 21" K hybrid, really love them both but the Hybrid can do more and needs no micing to be heard plus the bell is bigger and it really loves to be crashed.

    I am seriously considering a Meinl 20" sand ride though, played one a few weeks back and whoa that thing is sweeeet. I may sell some of my hybrids to help fund a purchase of the whole Benny Greb Meinl sand set. They all sound really good.

    Here is an old comparison I did of a 21" sweet ride and my then new 20" K ride. I will do another with the 21" Hybrid soon

    Premier Elite Black Sparkle

    Zildjian K Cymbals

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing.

    MOST ORCHESTRA'S ARE JUST 1800'S COVER BANDS!

    I have and used my 21 A Sweet ride for 40 years and love it. The K ride sounds great and darker and have debated on getting one but I really don't need another one but if I did I would definitely get the K. Nice comparison MDK thanks for sharing.
    Keep on drumming and have fun doing it.

    There's so many options it's near impossible to suggest something over text. I'd really suggest going to a store that has a decent selection, it's worth the trip.

    Here's some I own and cherish:

    23" Istanbul Matt Chamberlain
    22" Meinl Byzance Jazz Club flat ride with 2 rivits
    21" Bosphrorus Masters Vintage
    20" Sabian HH Bounce ride
    20" Zildjian 50's med-light

    I had a K ride and found it to be too heavy for me. I lean toward lighter rides with a stronger wash. The K ride is nice, love the tone and cut but it's heavier and pingier than I thought a K would be.
