Matt Helders originally used a Zildjian A Crash/Ride in his earlier albums but then later changed to the slightly darker, Zildjian K Crash/Ride. This Crash Ride can be seen in music videos such as 'Arebella' and 'R U Mine', aswell as many live performances, particulary from the 'AM' era. Proof of this can be seen at 2:17 in the live performance of 'R U Mine' that is linked above.more
Bought it at an early age, and fell in love with its cutting/washy crash sound. Never used it for its "ride" abilities, but have always bashed away at it. Bell has a low ping. I would never recommend it as a main ride, but it is a great heavy/thin crash to have with longer sustain.
