The ride at Fasila Music

The ride is one of the common cymbals, widespread since the 1930s, first via Jazz drummers and then integrated into the standard drum configurations. Its diameter varies from 18 to 24 inches.

The name "wrinkle" derives from the most common way of playing it, with the olive (end) of the wand on the body of the cymbal, above, producing a kind of "gallop" on the cymbal. You can also play it as a cymbal crash, hit on the edge, or on the central dome, called the bell, in order to get different sounds.
