Thank you, Peter; so it's not a new term.

As I half-expected, you confirm that it's a marketing term, and not in standard use among jazz drummers, whether in the context of what a "left-hand ride" ought to sound like, or any other. As you say, it (along with any other component)can be used anywhere on the kit that a drummer prefers.

The world is full of these catchy little terms and phrases that are presumably meant to impress and entice. Cymbal marketing may be the most extreme case of this. We are also treated, nowadays, anyway, to a seemingly endless flow of new cymbal types, which are all supposed to have that extra something without which we cannot continue to survive in our particular branch of music. I suppose that can't be entirely a bad thing, as it just might, some time over the years, throw up the cymbals of all our dreams

I was interested to see a few weeks ago when I went to see Acker Bilk, that his drummer uses two riveted rides, one noticeably darker than the other, plus a hi-hat. I'm not sure that I'd ever go for two riveted ones, but it goes to show that it really is all a matter of taste, and often of compromise of one kind or another.
