    I can't decide on a ride.

    I've been looking for a ride cymbal for a while now, but can't seem to choose one. I think maybe my issue is that i'm looking for one that i can use for all situations. I play rock, r&b, and some jazz. Is there something that can be used for all of those or do i need one for each?
