Crystalline definition and evocative undertones.
The Zildjian K Custom Dark Complex Ride continues the evolution of the celebrated K Zildjian tradition. Its heavily hammered top, bottom, and cup combine with its medium thin structure for great stick definition, rich, evocative timbres, and dark, nasty crash sounds. With Zildjian's new satin finish, it's great for wide-ranging styles including rock, alternative, pop, R&B, country, funk, Latin, & jazz.
The whole package, with stellar definition riding a dark, evocative magic carpet of tones.

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark Complex Ride:
I love Zildjian Products, especially the K series of cymbals, but this one left me scratching my head. While working at a Guitar Center's drum department, I encountered this cymbal frequently.
Its overtones were inharmonic, trashy, and simply poor sounding. There was very little stick response, and a huge wash of those clashing, nail scratching overtones. I can not see any possible genre of music that this cymbal could excel at.
It feels like someone printed out sheet metal, smashed it with a pipe wrench a few times, and called it good. Its flimsy, obnoxious, and completely un-musical. Look elsewhere.
