If you ask almost any old rocker what they'd pick as the cymbal of their dreams, they'd almost certainly at least mention the 1950s Zildjian Kerope cymbals. With that in mind, Zildjian came to the rescue and have now brought out an immensely faithful replication of the 50s line.

Using some of the most complex and arduouses process in cymbal manufacturing, Zildjian have painstakingly recreated the exact methods and alloys used in the original line; the results were breathtaking and these new cymbals have become an instant classic.

Zildjian Kerope cymbals are amongst the very best cymbals in modern production, each and every cymbal has had so much attention put into it that it has developed its own personality and complexities. Providing an unmatched level of playability, you'll instantly create a bond with the cymbal as you experience the cymbal responding to your every movement.

When it comes to rhythmic playing and quick, over the top stick movements, the Zildjian Kerope is perhaps second to none. Jazz players will love how each tap will respond with staggering accuracy and tone.

Playing it in a crashing motion it remains calm and gives out a vintage style, classy wash that is again easily controllable, and as you play harder it can reach some exceptional volume but maintains the superb high class tone.

Last but not least, the bell pings out with the high class and incredibly warm tone that sends echoes from the 1950s legends.

Overall, here's a cymbal that oozes class. It may be vintage style, but a cymbal this good will last for ever. Maybe in 60 years time, people will be looking back for the Keropes from 2016!
