Grab your favorite stick and try out various ride cymbals. Experience different bell and shoulder shapes, hammering and lathing patterns, and an assortment of sizes and thickness - these all contribute to the final sound. Use different techniques and sticks to find out what tones are possible. Compare with a cymbal you know to find out how it might work in your drum set! Bring in your cymbals for a lesson on matching.
