Possessed of the same deep, dark, warm, low-pitched tonal characteristics associated with K Zildjians. But featuring the distinctive fast, clean Mastersound “chick”.
Hammered groves in the bottom cymbal of these HiHat pairs rapidly vent trapped air for a fast, clean and clear “chick” sound.
Based on requests from players for a lighter weight version of our heralded K HiHats, these K Light HiHats have a medium thin top paired with a medium bottom to give them a dark and slightly delicate feel with a light blend of overtones. Good for most applications including rock, pop, country and jazz.
The 22″ K Zildjian Dark Medium Ride is designed to perform in rock and jazz settings with equal effectiveness. This cymbal features a large bell for excellent projection in rock settings, and special hammering and lathing to open up the cymbal for broad tonal complexities in jazz settings. Exclusive “Pin” lathing enhances the crashability and gives the cymbal a distinct appearance reminiscent of 1960’s era K Zildjians.
This 24″ beauty is designed to generate wide variations of sound. Thin in weight, it has a dark sound with plenty of overtones. The cymbal can be used as a straight ahead ride capable of handling light playing in a trio setting to a rock ride that cuts through loud, amplified settings. It features a smaller bell and exhibits a moderate degree of edge wobble. Drummers like Joey Castillo, Travis Barker and Ronnie Vanucci have already made it their main ride.
The K Light range now also features a 22″ K Light Ride to complement the existing 24″ model. The 22″ K Light Ride features the same “smoky” sound and excellent stick definition of the 24″ model but in a smaller, more controllable size. The Ride is perfect for rock, jazz, country or anything else you throw at them.
