K Zildjian cymbals continue to inspire drummers today with their deep, warm, and expressive sounds developed by Kerope Zildjian in 19th Century Turkey. Elaborate hammering and lathing techniques work the Zildjian alloy into versatile cymbals that are dark yet well suited for a wide variety of musical genres from jazz to rock.
The K Cluster Crashes are extra thin in weight with an unlathed bell, and feature the traditional K style hammering technique with additional “cluster” hammer marks that create a darker, trashier sound with a fast attack and great response.
