Hey guys!
I'm looking for my next ride cymbal. Don't currently have one, haha.
I am enamoured with the 21" size but I'm open anything that's not too heavy. Medium weight, around 2500g's or so would be as heavy as I'd want to go, but ideally lighter than that.
I would love something that is quite crashable and thin at the edge. Bell isn't that important.
Whatcha got?

It sounds like you're looking for an A Sweet Ride. That pretty much nails everything you're asking for and is available relatively inexpensively. I use one and it's fantastic, super versatile.
I owned and gigged one of those for years. I loved it.
That's why I was tempted by the K Sweet. I would like a little more darkness and complexity than the A Sweet provides...

You could try an "Avedis" 21". It just has the Avedis signature on top for a logo.

It's thinner than the A Sweet Ride, has excellent crash, bell and is a touch "smokey" depending on the sticks you use.
The one I have is similar to a Giant Beat in performance. It's a "multi" use cymbal IMO.
It sounds REALLY good with the the 24" Giant Beat and 22" Giant Beat cymbals I have also.

There are a few good sound files on YouTube of it.
