Multiple tonal options from this hybrid China.
The K Custom Hybrid series is another innovative and musical line developed in conjunction with Akira Jimbo, a leading drum stylist.
The Hybrids combine an unlathed, brilliant finish on the inner half with the traditionally finished K Zildjian lathing on the outer half of the cymbal. This results in the possibility of 2 different sound dynamics depending where the cymbal is played. Additionally, the unlathed section helps to control the wash and sustain, rendering them ideal for recording and live situations.
The K Custom Hybrid China has a thinner design that lends it a broad, breathy quality but still abundantly projects due to the unlathed bell. It provides a unique musical statement that will challenge and inspire your artistic expressions.
Akira said, "Maximum versatility is the main idea with the Hybrid series. I worked with Zildjian to design a line of cymbals where brilliance and darkness co-exist. I think the sound we came up with sets the new standard for the 21st Century."
