The K Custom Series is where the Zildjian Sound Lab went 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 hi-hats, K Custom cymbals all create a uniquely beautiful
K Customs, 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.
Recommended for modern jazz, studio, country and medium rock. K
