K Custom series cymbals, like all Zildjian cast bronze
cymbals, are individually poured and cast from raw molten metal.
Each casting is cooled and sorted by weight for each cymbal model.
Castings are then put through a complex sequence of heating,
rolling, shaping, hammering, and lathing techniques unique to each
cymbal range. Cast bronze cymbals have a rich, full-bodied sound
that improves with age.
They also have greater projection, clarity, and durability
than any other cymbals. Zildjian cast cymbals are made from the
Zildjian secret alloy, which is comprised of 80% copper, 20% tin,
and traces of silver.
Drawing from the spirit of the legendary K Zildjian range, K
Custom cymbals are dark, rich and dry and enable today's drummers
to utilize complex K sounds in a more modern musical environment.
They feature traditional K hammering, plus a variety of additional
modern hammering techniques that produce unique sonic capabilities.
