Overview: Zildjian’s K Constantinople Crash Cymbals
Specifics: Zildjian has added three Crash cymbals to its line of K Constantinoples—15-inch, 17-inch and 19-inch—to complement the 16-inch and 18-inch Crashes currently in the product line. These instruments feature a new hammering technique, an additional pin lathe on the top and bottom, and vintage-style cups (on the 15-inch and 17-inch models). The pin lathe feature also gives the cymbals an appearance similar to earlier Ks from the ’60s. The 15-inch and 17-inch Crashes are thin in weight. The 19-inch K Constantinople Crash Ride, which provides a left side alternative, is medium-thin in weight. The K Constantinople 14-inch HiHats, and 16-inch and 18-inch Crashes, have been improved, incorporating the same features as in the new 15-inch, 17-inch and 19-inch Crashes. By utilizing new hammering techniques, these Crashes open up with more dark overtones, distinction and musicality than ever before. The pin lathe, added to the top and bottom of each cymbal, serves as an additional tonal groove, adding to the overall complexity of the sound produced. The 16-inch and 18-inch Crashes are thin in weight, whereas the 14-inch Hihats have a medium-thin top and a medium bottom.
