Plenty of give, texture, and "crashability."  Combination of top articulation and bottom spread provides excellent stick articulation.  Higher in pitch.


The legendary "K Con" is renowned for its perfect blended sound quality. Complex hammering contributes to the cymbals' unique sonic identity and dark tones that can be at once cutting and smooth. Made in small batches using a 14-step hammering process, K Constantinople has its own signature voice.

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.
