Be the first to review this product

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." K Constantinople cymbals speak with the dark warm sound associated with Zildjian cymbals made in Turkey in the first half of the 20th Century.

Description

Zildjian K Constantinople 14" Hi Hats (2012 Model - Pair)

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." K 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.

The 14" K Constantinople HiHats have received a makeover. Incorporating the same features as the new 15”, 17”, and 19” K Constantinople Crashes, the HiHats now utilize new hammering techniques allowing the cymbal to open up with more dark overtones, distinction, and musicality than ever before.

The new pin lathe, added to the top and bottom of each cymbal, serves as an additional tonal groove, adding to the overall complexity of the sound produced. Additionally, the new pin lathe enhances the visual appearance of these cymbals adding a vintage look of the Ks of the past.
