OVERVIEW

K Custom cymbals enable drummers to meet the demands of contemporary music.

The new K Constantinople Hi Bell Rides explore a bell shape that was modeled after a 100 year-old pair of Zildjian orchestral cymbals. The larger surface area of the bell provides a wider range of frequencies, yet is not overpowering.

Zildjian Hi Bell Rides also feature a combination of traditional K Constantinople lathing and innovative "Spiral" lathing techniques. The new technique of Spiral lathing allows the cymbal to remain controlled while still making the Ride "crashable" and delivering an articulate stick sound. The Spiral lathing is employed from the bell to the middle of the cymbal only, with traditional lathing on the remainder of the cymbal.

      Comments about Zildjian K Constantinople Medium Thin Ride Cymbal:

      This ride is simply put my favorite ride to ever play. Got it on a scratch and dent sale for an absolute steal. Full price however is justified. It pairs well with K custom dark hats and larger 18/20" crashes. Stick attack is focused and relatively bright. Crash is full bodied with pleasant overtones. Bell is clear, however not as pronounced and doesn't cut as well as some other rides (e.g. A Custom). Very easy to build dynamic using this ride, and brushes provide a great texture for smaller venues or jazz gigs.

      great tone but puzzled

      Comments about Zildjian K Constantinople Medium Thin Ride Cymbal:

      Bought this about a year ago. Haved used it for light accoustic to gospel traditional. Sounds great but the big problem is that the cymbal tends to favor one side when setting on the cymbal stand. I know most cymbals do this but I think this cymbal has a flaw. It bothers me when I try to set it up with my kit,try to ride it ,then crash it. AWKWARD. I cuttently have my music shop saleswoman working on a solution or even a return. I would think twice before spending the money. I have the discontinued hi bell,high,22 inch. I use it for accoustic and it sounds great. No bell though. I purchased a 19 hybrid for bell use,huge,and crash as a side cymbal. Think twice about this one. I know this is a very popular ride right now. The price is out of sight for the product.
