Soft, delicate and subtle without being mushy. Unique, ultra warm and
dark sound, ideal for acoustic jazz and studio work. Though "chick"
sound is very dry and warm, it is full-bodied with plenty of "presence."
Constantinople cymbals speak with the dark warm sound associated with
Zildjian cymbals made in Turkey in the first half of the 20th Century.
"Old Ks" first resurfaced during the 1950s and 1960s in set-ups of bebop
era vanguard drummers like Elvin Jones.
K Constantinoples are
hand-lathed by skilled artisans using old-style cutting tools. Pits and
other surface impurities, that modern finishing processes remove, are
retained, preserving the original tonal quality.
