The Zildjian K Constantinople 18" Crash Cymbal gives your kit a no-nonsense accent. Dark and warm, the K Constantinople Crash conjures the sound of the Zildjians made in Turkey in the first half of the 20th century. The classic Old K dry overtones are there along with a silky-smooth decay, a sound favored by legendary bebop-era vanguard drummers such as Elvin Jones. Hand-lathed by skilled artisans, the K Constantinople retain pits and other surface impurities that modern finishing processes remove. The result? Pure tone. You want distinctive? The Zildjian K Constantinople Crash is a sure bet.
