Soft, delicate, and subtle without being mushy. Unique, ultra warm, and dark sound, ideal for acoustic jazz and studio work. Though the "chick" sound is very dry and warm, it is full-bodied with plenty of presence. Developed in conjunction with the maestro, Elvin Jones.
Crafted using traditional and modern hammering techniques for enriched, vintage sounds.

Comments about Zildjian K Constantinople Hi-Hat Pair:
I was looking to upgrade my hi-hats on my kit, because I've been, frankly, playing fairly cheap ones for too long. I've always been a fan of Zildjian products and I was potentially interested in getting some K-Customs to replace my old ones, until I heard these. They sounded great on the Zildjian videos I watched, as well as some other reviews, so I decided to take the plunge. The price point is pretty high, but this was exactly the hi-hat sound I was looking for.
The Constantinople series has a rather dark and warm quality to it, but it also had a layer of brightness that the K-Dark's didn't have. It's kind of a best of both worlds between the Dark's and K-Custom/A-Custom sound. I found the hi-hats could cut through the sound of my kit really well. Now, the manufacturer lists Jazz as the best style, but I play metal, Black Metal to be precise and when it comes to a hi-hat tone that complements the music I am performing, I think these are the best I've ever heard. The response to blasting patterns and sections simply sounds beautiful and I can't get enough of it!
A word of caution when it comes to these cymbals though. They're meticulously made, but they are a bit of a thinner metal, so if you find you're a heavy hitter behind the kit in the realms of metal then you might want to steer clear of these cymbals. You won't want to break something this expensive so soon.
