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

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

    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.

    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.
