Of all the new cymbals Zildjian is introducing in 2012, these two K Custom Dark Complex Ride Cymbals are the most unique that have come out of development in the Zildjian Sound Lab!

A new marvel of a ride cymbal model from the K Custom series, the K Custom Dark Complex Ride Cymbals are unlathed but are extensively hammered throughout the body, including the bell. After the cymbal goes through the manufacturing process, a satin finish is applied using a proprietary method which adds to its unique appearance. All of this creates a cymbal that is dark and complex, one that is dry but with plenty of spread at the same time. This is one that must be played to hear the complexity of it! A great cymbal to forge your own style and sound with!

Both 21” and 22” sizes are medium thin in weight. The 21” will have a higher and brighter dominant pitch and sound, the 22” will be deeper and darker.

The K Custom Series

Based closely on the long tradition of Turkish made cymbals and the timeless state of the art shown by the K Zildjian line, the K Custom Series is where the Zildjian Sound Lab goes into innovation overdrive. K Customs arm you with a collection of modern K voices like no other. In this range, you'll find sounds that set the standard for modern cymbal design. Whether it's the warm shimmering tones of a Ride cymbal, or the complex sizzle of a pair of HiHats, these cymbals all create a uniquely beautiful sound. K Customs enable drummers to vary their K sounds to meet the demands of contemporary music. A “K” is a cymbal that you will always have and will always play!

    i bought this cymbal a little over six months ago, and i have to say: best purchase ever. its sound is compared to a gongs wash, with the tone of the regular k rides, perfect for crashing and using as an accent crash with double bass or for smooth jazz playing. the dynamics of this cymbals allow for use in every style of music. Get one TODAY!! :)
