A classic ride cymbal for the ages.
The K Constantinople Hi Bell Dry Ride features a bell shape that was modeled after a 100 year-old pair of Zildjian orchestral cymbals. The larger surface area of the K Constantinople Hi Bell Dry Ride bell provides a wider range of frequencies, yet is not overpowering. Available in a 22" size only, the K Constantinople Hi Bell Dry Ride is the only one of the series to feature full spiral lathing. This design prevents the cymbal from opening up as much as the half spiral lathed models, the result is more defined stick articulation while keeping the cymbal crashable. An exciting sound that pays homage to the smoky-sounding traditional K Zildjian cymbals.

After trying a few different Constantinople rides, I found the 22" Hi Bell - Dry to be by far the most suited for general jazz playing. Its higher profile combines with special lathing technology to create a well-defined stick articulation with pleasant "wash" and overtones that blend perfectly with other similar cymbals in a jazz setting.
