Anyone who says this ride sucks THEY ARE WRONG!! i played quite a few name set of cymbals from sabian to zilijanz(custom A's,K's)sadly ZBTS (the hats were ok but crash and ride NO) but nevermind those if your a drummer who on ca budget and needs so goos soundind reliable cymbals for not to much MEINL HCS SERIES IS THE WAY TO GO! of course if you can afford mcs they are wayyyy better! I have no complaints about mine the thing about this is it will take time gettin used to and you will have to fidlle with it to find the sweet spots you like and that fit your style mine is the bell PERFECT FOR when i play metal and do hip hop and R&b covers and also my other favorite is around and near the bell well thats all i gotta say!!! i strongly reconmmend to all skill levels

I first purchased this ride because I had just received a drum set after 5 years of not playing and wanted something cheap to hit. It most defiantly is that and a little more. After the first couple jam sessions I started to realize it rang out on and on and on and on. The initial hit of the ride is very pingy and nice, but then the sound never ends. After a little moongel on the outside edge, the sound diminishes much quicker, and now is more than bearable. What it lacks in control it makes up in price! Anyone looking for a quick, cheap, and decent sounding ride cymbal look no further.

Piecing a kit together and so far this has been my favorite addition! Was told that I would have to spend $200-$300 to get something that sounds like this. Highly recommended!!! Just watch the vid. In this case I really feel I received more than I paid for...

personally the HCS series from meinl are great cymbals for beginners, but for some reason the HCS ride actually sounds great!! Not as good as like a Sabian AA obviously but if your looking for a good sounding ride for a good price i really recommend this ride.

Recently bought a used kit, only thing that i really needed was some quality cymbals at a reasonable price,and then i found exactly what i was looking for.......... Meinl. Purchased this ride in a 20 inch, the 14 inch hats, and a 8 inch splash, have had them for a few days and couldn't be happier with the sound,look, and i mean seriously you can't beat the price with a stick!! Highly suggest you get a pair if quality,price, and look is what you are looking for!!

I hate to review this because I just bought a set of drums and I don't play them yet. I bought this 20-inch ride cymbal because after watching some drumming lessons on video I decided that I definitely want a nice large ride cymbal.

I marked this 5 stars because the shipping was super fast, and the cymbal looks and feels great. However, as far as sound goes I can't say a lot because I don't have a lot of experience with it. I'll tell you what I did do so far. I put it on a cymbal stand and played some various 8th and 16th patterns to see if I could get a feel for what it will be like. Here's what I experienced.

The cymbal has a very wide range of tones (or sounds) from the rim to the bell. In some spots it sound more like a gong than a cymbal, in other spots it has a that nice ride cymbal sound I was hoping for. So I think I'm going to be happy with it. In fact, there seems to be two "sweet spots" on this cymbal. The first one is about an inch and a half in from the rim, and the second one is about an inch out from the edge of the bell. Hitting it at other places produces more of a gong sound than a cymbal sound (but keep in mind that I'm totally inexperienced with this)

The other thing that I noticed too is that the bell itself seems to be rather dead. I noticed this because one of my lessons teaches to go into the bell on every other beat. On the video their bell sounded like a bell. This bell just sounds like a thud. However, this could have something to do with my cymbal stand or the way I have it mounted, but I tried various tensions etc, and could never get an actual bell sound from the bell. This isn't really a concern for me personally, but I thought I'd mention it for anyone who might be in need of that bell sound.
