This new 22″ K Constantinople is thin in weight to give it a nice dark pitch and plenty of wash. An additional series of over hammered marks on top of the traditional K Constantinople hammering yields a slightly drier sound with excellent stick definition for marking time. Very controllable in that it doesn’t get away from you when playing fast patterns. Great for small to medium sized group settings.

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.

The 14″ K Constantinople HiHats have received a makeover. Incorporating the same features as the new 15”, 17”, and 19” K Constantinople Crashes, the HiHats now utilize new hammering techniques allowing the cymbal to open up with more dark overtones, distinction, and musicality than ever before. The new 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. Additionally, the new pin lathe enhances the visual appearance of these cymbals adding a vintage look of the Ks of the past.

The 14” Hihats have a medium-thin top and a medium bottom.

Plenty of give, texture and “crashability.” Combination of top articulation and bottom spread provides excellent stick articulation. Higher in pitch.

K Constantinople cymbals speak with the dark warm sound associated with Zildjian cymbals made in Turkey in the first half of the 20th Century. “Old Ks” first resurfaced during the 1950s and 1960s in set-ups of bebop era vanguard drummers like Elvin Jones.

K Constantinoples are hand-lathed by skilled artisans using old-style cutting tools. Pits and other surface impurities, that modern finishing processes remove, are retained, preserving the original tonal quality.

Designed in conjunction with Jazz legend Kenny Washington, this newest edition to the K Constantinople line is medium thin in weight, which produces a pitch that can ride over the band and cuts through most small to big band settings. The “Bounce” ride has traditional K Constantinople hammering but with more pronounced lathe/tonal grooves, and produces plenty of sustain and wash. This cymbal has a unique series of eight “cluster” over-hammered marks on top that are visually distinct and give it just enough trash and ‘dirt.’ You’ll dig this one.
