OVERVIEW

Produces warm, rich sound that cuts through and sings out.

K Custom Dark cymbals are known for their warm, rich sound that cuts through and sings out. Overhammering on top of the cymbal provides slightly dry, trashy overtones. This pack is comprised of the most popular sizes within the K Custom Dark lineup: 14" Hi-Hats, 16" Crash, 18" Crash and a 20" Ride.

Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, Tony Williams, and scores more musical movers have sworn by the deep, dry, shimmering K sound developed in 19th century Turkey. K Custom cymbals are specially designed to provide more volume and cut with a quicker attack and decay than traditional K Zildjians.

      Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Box Set:

      I purchased this pack for the church band I play with weekly. We have a medium size auditorium with a membership of around 800 so a good number of people hear these cymbals. I already owned a 15 Dark Custom K and an 18 Dark Custom K for my home drum kit, but the HH and Ride cymbals are different than I own. This is a fantastic deal, but the ride isn't my favorite sound. The ping has a dull sound and doesn't sound as good as my older Zildjian Rock Ride or my Zildjian Thin ride both of which are from the 80's.

        Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Box Set:

        These cymbals sound amazing!! I did a lot of research and looking around on different sets of cymbals that would sound great with the worship band at church. Some packs would have one or two cymbals that sounded great, but the others weren't what I was looking for. When I got to test this set out, fit blew me away! The warm, dark tones that came from each cymbal gave me goosebumps and the right sounds absolutely beautiful.

          Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Box Set:

          I'm a multi-instrumentalist of over 20 years -- and a former recording studio co-owner. I splurged and bought this as the cymbal pack for my first acoustic drum set. I wasn't planning on spending this much, but decided to take a chance with a box that was a customer return (Level 3). Good move. These sound great. Nice, smoky, and complex without nasty tones I hear in a lot of cymbals. I was not looking for a brilliant cymbal set with a ton of volume. True, these may not cut through in a metal rehearsal, but that isn't my thing. These will record nicely and have a better frequency and volume relative to the drums, so I will be able to turn the overheads up.

          I couldn't find any major issue with the returned cymbals. No cracks, keyholing, or major scrapes. There were obvious hand prints/oils, a little stick wear, and minor scrapes. I got a good discount and have already put more stick wear on them myself by now. That was a relief.

          Hopefully, these last a long time - they sound great.

          If I would change something, I would have preferred a second ride rather than the second crash.

            Right out of the box these cymbals sounded great. Just like all the reviews I read they really cut through and speak clearly. I play many types of music from jazz to country to rock. I see no problem using these cymbals in every setting. They look great and sound amazing.

              Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Box Set:

              What can I say about the sound and price of this box set other than holy cow!! 1st of all, putting all these together in a box set is a fantastic idea, then making it way more affordable then buying them individually, very awesome. As for the sound, there is no words yet created to describe how firkin awesome these sound. They changed the sound of my drumming and bands music exactly how I hoped it would. Love the dark old school jazz sound they give. As for quality, we will wait and see... But being that they're made by Zildjian, I'm not too worried.
