Yeah they're the rubber ones, they are very punchy and seem durable (I've had them about a year with no problems.)

I play what ever I'm currently listening to, which right now is mostly post-hardcore and metalcore type stuff. (The Bled, KsE, Alexisonfire, Protest the Hero, Every Time I Die, ect.) I was in a post-hardcore band but we broke up because our bass player moved. That was disapointing because at my school there's barely any kids who like that kind of music. All the "metal" kids where I live listen to Slipknot and Korn.
I also play alternative rock like Modest Mouse, Wilco, 311, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine and System of a Down.
The ride is one of the seven wonders of the world as far as I'm concerned, it has great stick definition and a powerful dark tone when crashed.
