Redesigned by Terri Lyne Carrington for 2008, the 22" K Custom High Definition Ride is thinner than the original model for greater "crashability" and feel while riding. It features the same spiral lathing on top but the bottom has been left unlathed to help retain the dryness and stick definition. Perfect for use in both electric and acoustic settings, this Ride has a great amount of body and tone while still sounding "dry" and controlled.
Important information about this cymbal:
This cymbal is hand-crafted using processes that give it a unique and deliberately varied finish. Variations in color, hammer marks, pitting, and other visual marks are expected and are inherent of these special processes to achieve this cymbal's look and unique sound. Such variations should not be considered a defect in workmanship. We do not recommend cleaning any of our natural finish cymbals with cymbal cleaning products as they should only be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth.
Drawing from the spirit of the legendary K Zildjian range, K Custom cymbals are dark, rich and dry and enable today's drummers to utilize complex K sounds in a more modern musical environment. They feature traditional K hammering, plus a variety of additional modern hammering techniques that produce unique sonic capabilities. Recommended for modern jazz, studio, country and medium rock. K Customs are designed with today's diverse music scene in mind.
