Designed with Akira Jimbo to combine darkness and brilliance. Thin Crashes and Splashes to project like heavier cymbals due to the un-lathed bell.

Designed with Akira Jimbo, the K Custom Hybrid models combine the un-lathed, brilliant finish on the inner half with the traditionally finished K Zildjian lathing on the outer half. This results in the possibility of two different sound dynamics depending on where the cymbal is played. Additionally, the un-lathed section helps to control the wash and sustain, renering them ideal for recording sessions and live situations.

    This cymbal is awesome...I've been using it for the past few years live and in the studio. It's super balanced and never gets out of control. Everyone always asks about this cymbal when I use it!

      Comments about Zildjian K Custom 17" Hybrid Crash Cymbal:

      When I went into the store I went in with the mindset of not looking at brand or price, but was leaning towards sabian after being a K player for many years. I played ever crash cymbal they had and kept going back to these. the sound was bright yet not overbearing. I played my first show with them last night and WOW. the sound was a full crash and great from loud to soft. musically they fit well with the band. hard accents sounded just as good as soft taps on the bells. the price my seem a little high but i'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for and these are worth every penny.
