OVERVIEW

This cymbal's trashy, noisy sound is as distinctive as its look.

For the first EFX cymbal in the K Series, Zildjian has combined the same die-cut pattern featured in its A Custom EFX cymbals with the darker tone and traditional look of the K cymbals. This cymbal has a thin weight and a crash-size bell, so the response, decay, and projection are good.

Its sound is a dark and explosive combination of trash and white noise.

FEATURES
  • 16"- or 18"-diameter
  • Thin weight
  • Same "die cut" pattern as A Custom EFX cymbals
  • Darker tone than the A Custom EFX
  • Good response and decay
  • Traditional finish
  • Crash-sized bell for good projection

Feel the EFX of adding this amazing cymbal to your kit, order today.

    Comments about Zildjian K EFX Cymbal:

    Can't say anything bad about this cymbal really. I purchased the 16" and I will be buying the 18" as well. The only thing I could see becoming a factor is the small amount of surface area between the edge of the cymbal and the large laser cuts. Based on the design, that would have to be a rather weak point in the metal. The light weight of this cymbal, however, means that it doesn't need to be smashed to cut through, so if you are a heavy hitter, just retrain your attack a little and this thing should last as long as any other quality cymbal.

    Q

    Comments about Zildjian K EFX Cymbal:

    I saw Shawn Pelton from Saturday Night Live playing one of these. Not sure if it was an A or a K. I'm a diehard paiste guy but I have a space in my heart for "K"'s. It's awesome. I wasn't sure how it would fit in with an R&B project i was doing but it was perfect. Eventhough it looks like a fusion type of trash sound it fits in great. Fast decay which is what I was looking for, great for accenting and has great volume control so it doesn't jump out in a smooth R&B tune. At first when hitting it by itself I thought it might be to "gongy" but once surrounded by the other live instruments it blended beautifully. How come paiste doen't have on of these?
