Zildjian

K Custom Dark Complex Rides and Hybrid Trash Smash

by Michael Dawson

Three of the more interesting pieces that Zildjian has released this year are the medium-thin 21″ and 22″ Dark Complex rides and the funky-looking 19″ Hybrid Trash Smash. All three cymbals fall in the K Custom series, which is where Zildjian’s Sound Lab places unique designs that offer modern sounds while still carrying the traditional K flavor. Although at first glance these cymbals may seem to be one-dimensional and of limited application, what we discovered was a different story altogether.
