Zildjian K Sweet Ride Cymbal

The Zildjian K Sweet Ride cymbals have taken the iconic Zildjian ‘K’ Ride cymbal family into a new direction of tonal colours with a blend of dark, sweet and responsive characteristics. Medium thin in weight, Zildjian K Sweet Rides are very ‘crashable’ and deliver darker overtones than the extremely popular Zildjian ‘A’ series Sweet Rides. With their fully lathed appearance and clear bell-sound, the K Sweet Ride delivers clean stick definition which sits well within the mix of many genres of music.

But what does it sound like?

These are obviously cymbals for serious players looking to buy top-end cymbals and know exactly why they are choosing Zildjian. If you are ready to invest in the more exquisite side of the Zildjian family of cymbals, this is a great opportunity to make that decision a cost-effective choice.

Zildjian K cymbals continue to inspire drummers today with their deep, warm, and expressive sounds developed by Kerope Zildjian in 19th Century Turkey. Elaborate hammering and lathing techniques work the Zildjian alloy into versatile cymbals that are dark yet well suited for a wide variety of musical genres.
