I prefer the A. I think I'd like both of them better with wood tips.

A's don't get enough love these days.

Yeah, I like the K more and a shout out to @cashmanbashman for sending it my way.

Specifically, the K IMHO has got a bit more cut/ping and less wash. Better suited for my band.

To my ear, they occupy much of the same space. They aren't exactly the same and I'd wager that you would only hear the differences in the right setting. The bell is different though.

I think you’re right. The A Sweet has a little more classic A light ride tone... basically, more chimey overtones than the K Crash Ride
