- 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.
- 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.
