  • A dark horse cymbal!  The discontinued Mini Bell or Mini Cup Ride - or TIGHT Ride.

  • As some studio fans know, the Mini Cup was a perennial favorite in studios in the 70s and 80s because it has a tight, pin-point-focused stick attack.  Hell, Bernard Purdie and Max Roach used them.

  • It has more body than a Flat Ride and is not as rambunctious as a Ping Ride.

  • And that is exactly the case with this hard-to-find and no longer made Sabian AA TIGHT Ride.

  • Aptly named, this Tight Ride produces a CLEAR, CLEAN, CRISP, CUTTING tone.  That’s the beauty of it.

  • That’s what the universe called it to do.

  • And it answers.

  • Very limited in overtones  - hence the studio favorite. Cutting and defined - great ping attack that penetrates without being messy or raucous. 

  • Not complex. Focused.

  • Specifically heavy to cut and deliver a strong attack to penetrate a mix but the smaller bell controls the overtones.

  • 2932 grams. 

  • Perfect anytime you want great stick articulation that is WARM and isn’t all dead dry - this is a fully lathed cymbal, but it’s controlled. 

  • No issues. Clean.  A great 20” that has a lot of uses live and in the studio.
