Powerful and sophisticated, it may be the most complex cymbal of the collection because depending how you strike it, it can be so many Tgs
K Custom Special Dry are the original dry cymbal remastered for today’s modern musical styles.
The "Bounce" ride has traditional K Constantinople hammering but with more pronounced lathe/tonal grooves, and produces plenty of sustain and wash.
A bolder, more emphasized and defined fundamental stick sound with a little more articulation. Dry with a good degree of very pleasing overtones and "wash".
Plenty of give, texture and "crashability." Combination of top articulation and bottom spread provides excellent stick articulation. Higher in pitch.
Sitting comfortably between the HH King and HH Nova in pitch and tone, it’s the musical equivalent of opening Pandora’s Box!
They are big, dark, loose and dynamic – but most importantly, they are huge fun to playThey are big, dark, loose and dynamic – but most importantly, they are huge fun to play
To celebrate the 25th Anniversary, we created a Limited Edition 23” Anniversary Ride Cymbal.
The high profile and exaggerated bow curvature were achieved through extensive hand hammering, giving the Hammertone Ride the exact sound and profile desired by Hamilton.
Higher-pitched than traditional hand hammered models, it delivers great crash-ability, while never losing stick definition
A Medium weight model, the 20" Crescent Element Distressed Ride is raw and unlathed on top for dry, articulate tone with a little shimmer and lots of control.
It cuts at louder volume while retaining a high level of musicality.
