Hundreds of deep hammer marks across the entire surface of this K Constantinople ride supply a sound that is dark, crisp, and eminently complex — one that's tailor-made for jazz and sits great in a studio production. The Zildjian K Constantinople 22" Thin Ride Overhammered is thin-crafted in small batches using Zildjian's legendary B20 bronze formulation. An involved 14-step hammering process and skilled hand-lathing conjures the sound of some of Zildjian's most prized Turkish cymbals made in the first half of the 20th century. As a ride, you get a defined ping and a dark and crunchy bell tone. As a crash, you get a buttery warmth and explosive power that dynamic players are sure to love. Even better, the lines between these applications blur significantly with technique — the rich harmonics melting into one another to create a unique sound with every performance. Players the world over are discovering their dream cymbal tones in the Zildjian K Constantinople series.
