Most of the time I use an Alchemy (Istanbul Agop) 22" Raw Ride. Brilliant finish. It's super heavy and un-lethed. Real nice ping, little to no wash and loud! Only bad thing is the bell. The bell sounds just like the rest of the cymbal, even when you crack it with the side of a stick. So I got a 9" Alchemy Raw Bell (like a Zil-Bel) and flipped it upsidown on top of the ride. Much better now!
My 2nd ride is a 20" Istanbul Agop Turk Ride. Unlethed liked the Raw ride, but much thinner and darker. More wash and a little trashy sounding, and it's all black and burned looking. Amazing in the studio!
Then I have the ride I have had for over 10 years. 20" Zildjian K Pre-Aged Dry Light Ride. Nice ping off the stick, good wash, perfect for just about anything. Hell I even used it in a metal band. And it has the best bell out of any ride I have played!
I don't remember how much I paid for any of these, I would have to look at old invoices, but I know the Alchemy goes for around $345. in stores,
the Turk $265 and the K is $244.
The one ride I have always wanted is a Zildjian Z custom Mega-Bell ride... maybe someday.
