      Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Ride (445428)
Availability:  


Dark and brilliant sounds coexist within the K Custom Hybrid!

The K Custom Hybrid series is another innovative and musical line developed in conjunction with Akira Jimbo, a leading drum stylist. The Hybrids combine the unlathed, brilliant finish of the K Custom Ride on the inner half with the traditionally finished K Zildjian lathing on the outer half of the cymbal. This results in the possibility of two 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 20" Ride combines the defined stick attack and strong bell sound of the K Custom Ride with the crash-ability and increased spread of a thinner, lathed cymbal. 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."

  • Beautiful sound, great versatility!

    As reviewed by MOFDrummer on 4/30/2007

    I'm extremely pleased with my K Custom Hybrid Ride. It has a great dynamic range, as well as a fantastic tonal range that makes it very interesting to play. It's very crashable, and the bell is beautiful and powerful. I play Rock/Pop music, and this ride gives me the versatility I need to play heavier or lighter tunes. Plus, with that unique, half-lathed look, it makes my setup stand out, and wows my friends!

    recently bought this cymbal gentley used. I was just looking for something cheap to use as a secondary ride and the local GC had one for half price so I picked it up. It very quickly became my primary ride. the huge variety of tones shouldn't be underestimated. I play anything from jazz to metal and this cymbal can produce a different sound at every inch of its radius making it suitable for almost anything.

    I bought the 21'' version of this cymbal, and it is quite possibly the best cymbal I have ever heard/played. You can pretty much do anything with this cymbal as it serves multiple purposes and creates beautiful tones. It is simple to see the craftsmanship put into this cymbal.
