The new 17" K Constantinople Crash compliments the 16" and 18" Crashes currently in the product line. It features a new hammering technique, an additional pin lathe on the top and bottom, and a new vintage-style cup. These new features allow the cymbal to maintain the dark, expressive quality of the K Constantinople line sought by drummers the world over and incorporate even more overtones and nuances. The cymbal is thin in weight and the new pin lathe feature also gives the cymbal an appearance similar to earlier Ks from the 60's.
The legendary "K Con" is the pinnacle of the Zildjian cymbal line, renowned for its perfect blended sound quality. Complex hammering contributes to the cymbal's unique sonic identity and dark tones that can be at once cutting and smooth. Made in small batches using a 14-step process, every K Constantinople has its own signature voice.
