Test For Echo- Rush

I'm a Paiste fanatic but must admit that 22" ride he used was something special. I cant find anything that quite sounds like it. Its one of a kind (dont tell me its a Custom A, its not and not even shaped like it).

I mostly don't notice good cymbal sounds on non-jazz records, I just notice when they contribute to the vibe at all:

Rehumanize Yourself:
Ghost In The Machine has great sounding Ride all over it. Sounds best on Vinyl- the original not digitally remastered, pure analog uncompressed real sounding Ride is just ear candy!

Dire Straights - Sultans of Swing.
This song always comes to mind when I think of a song in which you can actually hear the ride cymbal. (There are very few.) Funny thing, though, I don't care for this ride sound. I suppose it works for the song and I don't dislike it, but it's not the ride sound I usually like.

I'm obsessed with this band right now, partly because of the ride. LOL! My guess is it's a 22" Kerope Medium? I'm a Paiste freak, but I love this. Chris Powell on drums.

I love the dark ride in the Prodigy's Poison, which might be electronic:
