A hand-lathed ride cymbal with soft, dark tones and a haunting resonance.
Developed in conjunction with renowned jazz drummer Adam Nussbaum, the Zildjian 22” K Constantinople Renaissance Ride is a versatile instrument that works well in small to medium size musical settings. The cymbal has an ambient and distinct ping and escalates quickly to a resonanting crash.
Along with a vintage appearance, this cymbal also features smoother lathing on both sides and a bell that is unlathed underneath, adding stick definition to the instrument. Three rows of over hammering and four large hammer clusters give it a dark spread with overtones and a bit of “trash.” The K Constantinople Renaissance Ride is medium-thin in weight.
