Zildjian K Constantinople Cymbals

Zildjian K Constantinople Cymbals

Dark, warm, lush and gorgeous. Recreating the classic “old K” sound with the same dry
overtones and smooth decay similar to the Ride cymbals that have proved so popular. Fast,
full-bodied response with an exceptional “Vintage” feel. 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.

Specs

ALLOY:
   80% Copper, 20% Tin, Traces of Silver.
HAMMERING:  Exclusive K Zildjian random hammering. K Constantinoples feature
extensive extra hammering that characterizes their vintage sound.
LATHING: Traditional wide groove lathing.
FINISH: All Traditional
SOUND: Beautifully dark, dry, warm and vibrant. K Constantinople has additional depth
and character, recreating the sound of the original K’s made in Turkey.




 

Zildjian Kerope Cymbals

Zildjian Kerope Cymbals

The Avedis Zildjian company is proud to announce the addition of the Kerope (pronounced
K. rop’) Series to its legacy K family of cymbals. These hand crafted cymbals look as they
sound - rich, dark and complex. Reminiscent of cymbals from the 1950s and 1960s yet distinct
modern and relevant for today’s music, the cymbal line is named in honour of Kerope Zildjian,
who presided over one of the most storied periods in Zildjian history. From 1865 until his death
in 1909 in Constantinople, Kerope continued to develop the classic K Zildjian sound, coveted
by the world’s greatest drummers.
Exhaustive research into cymbals dating back to the 1950s and 1960s was critical in capturing
the authentic look, feel and sound of K Zildjian cymbals, renowned for their rich, dark tones and
crafted, old world appearance. Zildjian carefully studied every nuance of decades-old cymbals
- their bells, profiles, hammering, lathing, tapers and weights to achieve an old world look and
a sound sought after by so many artists today.
