Zildjian ride cymbals have a very wide range of colors. The A Family rides offer a range of sweeter sounds with bright overtones and are extremely versatile. They blend beautifully with the music, but can cut through with a solid and bright attack. K Family rides are famous for their dark overtones. Their stick definition is unmatched and their ability to be soft and subtle then immediately explode through the music makes K Family rides a must have for expressive players.
