Designed with one of Japan's top drummer's Akira Jimbo.
The 20" Renaissance Ride offers a smaller, over-hammered bell, for a sound that's more contained, more integrated with the overall cymbal, and less chimey.
K Constantinople cymbals speak with the dark warm sound associated with Zildjian cymbals made in Turkey in the first half of the 20th Century.
Plenty of give, texture and "crashability." Combination of top articulation and bottom spread provides excellent stick articulation. Higher in pitch.
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".
The "Bounce" ride has traditional K Constantinople hammering but with more pronounced lathe/tonal grooves, and produces plenty of sustain and wash.
Good Stick definition, yet good degree of colorful, warmer undertones.
More high-end, stronger "ping" qualities.
Good ride definition. Good light crash qualities.
This new addition to the Zildjian “A” Family is a sonic recreation of the vintage "A" sound from the 1950's.
The new 19" K Constantinople Crash Ride compliments the 16" and 18" Crashes currently in the product line.
Armand Zildjian's favorite ride sound, features three rivet cluster and laser engraved Armand Zildjian Signature with his favorite expression, "Beautiful, Baby".
