Zildjian’s K line has comprised some of the company’s most popular models for good reason; they sound rich and warm without being overly dark or stylized. As a result, regular K hi-hats, crashes, and rides are relied upon by many working drummers to cover a wide range of applications. For 2018, Zildjian developed a new line of K cymbals that’s inspired by some of the ideas first implemented on the popular A Sweet rides. These new K Sweet cymbals are thinner and softer to make them even more expressive, and the crashes feature unlathed bells. The series consists of 15" and 16" hi-hats ($474.95 and $499.95), 16"–20" crashes ($259.95–$349.95), and 21" and 23" rides ($389.95 and $459.95).
