The new 15″ K Constantinople Crash compliments the 16″ and 18″ Crashes currently in the product line. It features a new hammering technique, an additional pin lathe on the top and bottom, and a new vintage-style cup. These new features allow the cymbal to maintain the dark, expressive quality of the K Constantinople line sought by drummers the world over and incorporate even more overtones and nuances. The cymbal is thin in weight and the new pin lathe feature also gives the cymbal an appearance similar to earlier Ks from the 60’s.
Developed as the company’s flagship series, K Constantinople cymbals are crafted to emulate the handmade cymbals Zildjian produced in the early 20th Century while still in Turkey. Designed to develop a more complex character as they age, each cymbal is hand-hammered, producing unique attributes even between cymbals of the same size and model.
Constantinople Crashes are crafted with a vintage-style bell, thin weight, and pin lathing for an umbrous character with nuanced atmosphere and decay.
