I have a 20” K Jazz ride that fits what you are describing. It also makes a wonderful crash if you want to use it in a more rock setting. It works awesome for gigs if I just want to take one cymbal.

Check out the Paiste Sig Mellow 22". Here's the video of mine. It's a fantastic all around ride.

No videos of mine but I had a Sabian Salsero ride refinished in brilliant and it's exactly this. Wash is very mild and medium/low pitched so it give body and presence but stays out of the way and it has a beautiful defined ping. Plays and sounds like the roundest heavy ride I've ever heard.

Joe keeps a spreadsheet on all of us
I do. I can't like anonymous internet chatter.
If fact I'd like and it'd be helpful to know what cymbals @Steech uses most often; maybe what has owned previously; is using at present;
to get a better picture of where anyone might be going in suggestions. Lol

Hellooo!

Any recommendations for a crystal clear, clean, and slightly washy ride cymbal with a clean bell that does not have the word “Constantinople” in its name?

I’d prefer a 21” or 22” if possible.

Thanks!
I have a fairly new 22" Sabian AAX Thin Ride that might work for you. PM me, let's make this happen.

Join the club. I’ve already forgotten which cymbals I bought and sold last week.

Thanks but Thin is just a bit too thin for me, plus I had one of those for a bit and it just wasn’t _______ enough. Beautiful sounding pie, though!
