K CONSTANTINOPLE CRASHES - MISURE 16"-17" - 18" - 19"
K CONSTANTINOPLE CRASHES 19"
The K Constantinople Crashes feature a newer style hammering technique, an additional pin lathe on the top and bottom, and a vintage-style cup for the bell. These features allow the cymbal to maintain the dark, expressive quality of the original K Constantinople line sought by drummers all over the world and incorporate even more dark overtones and nuances than ever before. The pin lathe serves as an additional tonal groove, adding to the overall complexity of the sound produced, and enhancing the visual appearance of these cymbals with a vintage look similar to earlier K's from the 60's.
KEROPE CRASH RIDES - MISURE 18", 19", 20", 22"
KEROPE CRASH RIDES 20"
These handcrafted cymbals look just as they sound - Dark and complex. Keropes are visually and sonically reminiscent of cymbals from the '50s and '60s, yet distinctly modern and relevant for today's music. Paper thin to thin, the 18" - 22" Keropes have a low profile, more integrated bell, and provide crash and ride qualities perfect for any musical setting. Unbelievably warm and responsive, they feature a patina finish achieved through a proprietary process that accelerates aging for an authentic vintage look. Their played-in feel is noticeable the moment your stick hits the cymbal, making you think these cymbals have been on your kit for 50 years. Kerope is named in honor of Kerope Zildjian, who presided over one of the most storied periods in Zildjian history.
