This cymbal has no lathing, which makes it very dry with a well defined, woody stick sound. The bell is small and precise which makes for a perfect fusion style ride. The body has tremendous definition and very little crashing capabilities but will do well in jazz fusion or rock gigs.
Combines a warm, dry stick sound with a lush, dark, dry, warm, and full-bodied crash sound, ideal for accents. Provides both these sought-after qualities in a single, unlathed, and extra-hammered but thin cymbal design. Ideal for electric and acoustic jazz. The K Custom cymbals are specially designed to provide more volume and cut with a quicker attack and decay than traditional K Zildjians.
