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."

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid China:

Best china I've ever played with. Beats any paiste or other zildjian china out there. Cuts through everything, and is great as a base cymbol for breakdowns.

Perfect addition

By Braden

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Hybrid China:

I recently purchased this cymbal while comparing it to the sound effects chinese, which has a much trashier sound, which I love. The salesman suggested the hybrid and I tried and it and loved it immediately. Not near as trashy, but thats ok. The cymbal is beautiful, and cuts right through everything else on my kit. I have yet to see how it will hold up, but I purchased a two year warranty so I'm not too concerned.
