Studio Cymbals - K Customs? which options?

I really like the Meinl stuff, those cymbals are expensive but they record really well.
Of the less known brands the Muat Diril cymbals are awesome. They will even build a cymbal to your specs if you want something special.

A bit counterintuitive but ok. How does radias effect pitch.

Also, I would like a ride with a clean, clear ping and quick decay on the wash to be recorded in a small space with bass, piano and horn in the same room. Any suggestions?

I thin cymbal will die away quicker, however the pitch will be lower, which usually doesn't associate with "ping."

Pretty much any ride marked as "dry" will fit the bill.
Paiste Masters dry and extra rides have a very nice shimmer to them like all Paiste cymbals, and the ping is quite defined, but you might just as well go with, say, a K custom special dry, a Byzance dry ride...
If you want some more tail/wash and a longer decay then there's the Paiste Masters dark crisp ride, the Signature Dark Energy ride mkI, the regular K custom ride and medium ride...

Or you could just find a ride you like and up some tape on the bottom, that'll dry it up very effectively while still maintaining its character.

The Meinl Cymbal tuners, which are magnets, can actually work well to dry up a cymbal. I like to put them either on the bell, or just outside the bell.

I don't use them often, but they're nice to have around.

Interesting. How do these compare to moongels on cymbals?

They are a little more noticeable (maybe), but easier to move around. PLUS they stay put!!!

They come in two weights (4 magnets) so you have that experiment as well.

Yeah, they're worth $20 even if they only get used a couple times a year.
