Zildjian
K Custom Dark Crashes

Zildjian’s product catalog already covers a wide swath of tones, from the bright, all-purpose sound of the A series to the deeper, warmer vibe of the K line to the vintage-like complexity of Constantinople and Kerope models. The K Custom series is an offshoot of the basic K and is where the company places its more contemporary and modern designs, like the popular half-lathed Hybrids and unique rides like the Special Dry, High Definition, and Organic.

The K Custom series also includes a full range of more all-purpose cymbals, from 10″ splashes to 22″ rides. In response to requests from artists and dealers alike, the company recently expanded the K Custom crash collection to include larger 19″ and 20″ models that offer the same warm, rich, and expressive qualities as the smaller cymbals but with added volume and sustain. These crashes also feature larger bells to help boost their cutting power.
