Zildjian K Paper Thin Crashes August 01 2023

New cymbals from Zildjian!  As strong as they are light, K Paper Thins offer an explosive dark crash with quick decay and a buttery under-stick feel.

A reimagined three-step hammering process unlocks flexibility and sonic nuances that contribute to the unique signature of these crashes.  The very thin profiles allow extra shimmer when crashed, providing a low-end resonance not found anywhere else in the K family.

Available in 18", 19", 20", 21", and 22" sizes:

New Meinl Byzance Foundry Reserve Series February 28 2019

The NEW Byzance Foundry Reserve collection is a limited selection of cymbals that showcases the stunning, sonically rich works of art that our cymbalsmiths create with layers of tonality and nuance; however, that is only half of the beauty, as they are visually striking from the one-of-a-kind hand-hammered marks. The extra hammering creates many deep craters across the surface. When this hammering is coupled with the fully lathed top and bottom, it produces a clear, dry stick-attack note over a lush bed of low undertones – otherwise known as “the roar.”
