Zildjian A Series 21" Rock Ride Cymbal
Sometimes Zildjian makes things too easy and simply labels their cymbals with their most effective use. In the case of their "A" series Rock Ride, they’ve really hit the nail right on the head. This is a great ride cymbal for rock music because it has a clear sound that cuts. The 21 inch size of this heavyweight cymbal projects a bit more clearly than 20 inch ride cymbals, producing a great tone and a high pitch that helps it stand out of the texture when needed. While many cymbals rely on their bell to give them a clear tone, the well-made "A" series Rock Ride has a very normal size bell. The cymbal has a very clear attack which is very appropriate for rock music but this picks overall sound works in other genres as well because it’s not too harsh.
