Zildjian K Custom Hybrid 16" Crash Cymbal - Multi-surface Finish
The Zildjian K Custom Hybrid 16" Crash Cymbal offers up a diverse range of tonal options that provides the player with a versatile array of application choices. Developed in conjunction with legendary jazz-fusion drummer Akira Jimbo, this crash features a hybrid finish; an unlathed inner half and lathed outer half delivers a complex range of dynamic character depending on which strike zone you play. Ideal for both live and studio setups, this crash possesses the signature K Custom character with a unique, high-contrast sonic delivery. You'll quickly fall in love with the new dimensions of expression it offers.
This K Custom Hybrid Crash offers a Jeckyl & Hyde-esque experience. It has a dark, luxurious side and a crisp brilliant side, both of which transition seamlessly when played from bell to edge. It gives you access to levels of dynamic expression that cannot be achieved with single-finished cymbals and adds a new facet of character to your percussive setup. This versatile crash is ideal for all kinds of music, whatever your preferred style or genre may be.
Crafted from B20 Bronze alloy, this brilliant crash cymbal is individually poured, cast and cooled before being exposed to an expertly-conceived sequence of heating, rolling, shaping, hammering, and lathing entirely unique to this particular cymbal range. These processes imbue the cymbal with the signature K Custom sound - dark and alluring, with great projection, clarity, and durability.
