K CONSTANTINOPLE RENAISSANCE RIDE
Designed with renowned jazz drummer Adam Nussbaum, the 20" K Constantinople Renaissance ride is a complement to the 22" version, but with some unique qualities. The 20" Renaissance Ride offers a smaller, over-hammered bell, for a sound that's more contained, more integrated with the overall cymbal, and less chimey. A thin, versatile, "crash weight" (between 1,786-1,871 grams) provides clean stick definition and offers drummers the added flexibility of alternating between ride patterns and crashing without overwhelming the stick.
Developed in conjunction with renowned jazz drummer Adam Nussbaum, the 22" K Constantinople Renaissance Ride is a versatile instrument that works well in small to medium size musical settings. This cymbal features smoother lathing on both sides and a bell that is unlathed underneath, adding stick definition to the instrument. Three rows of over hammering and four large hammer clusters give it a dark spread with overtones and a bit of "trash." The K Constantinople Renaissance Ride is medium-thin in weight.
