Nothing matches the shimmering sound of a beautiful, top quality ride cymbal. In fact, several types of cymbals are essential to a truly outstanding percussion kit, but a true ride cymbal is something no kit can do without. Just try to imagine composing or playing without that tremulous, sustained golden sound. You cannot do it. Not even the medium weight, slightly tapered crash ride cymbal combo can replace a true one for that necessary clear sound that is such an integral part of the familiar jazz or rock sound. When you are shopping for your new or previously owned cymbal on eBay, make sure to invest in a stand as well. Picture yourself on stage with your full complement of drums and the ultimate ride cymbal to carry the rhythm. You just cannot play a classic percussion beat without it right there next to the hi-hat. Take to the stage in style, and make music history.Shop the large inventory of percussion items and cymbals!
