K Custom cymbals enable drummers to meet the demands of contemporary music.
K Constantinople cymbals speak with the dark warm sound associated with Zildjian cymbals made in Turkey in the first half of the 20th Century. "Old Ks" first resurfaced during the 1950s and 1960s in set-ups of bebop era vanguard drummers like Elvin Jones. K Constantinoples are hand-lathed by skilled artisans using old-style cutting tools. Pits and other surface impurities, that modern finishing processes remove, are retained, preserving the original tonal quality.
This K Constantinople Medium Thin Ride "High" possesses plenty of give, texture and "crashability." Combination of top articulation and bottom spread provides excellent stick articulation. Higher in pitch.
A natural and sensitive ride cymbal for drummers who appreciate the simplicity of the old world. Order today.

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.
