What We Think

Zildjian has applied its centuries worth of cymbal knowledge to bring us the K Sweet Family, a line of cymbals that presents drummers with a new take on the classic Zildjian K sound. Featuring extensive hammering and lathing, the extra-thin K Sweets exhibit dark, fast responses with plenty of tonal complexity, thanks to the extensive, random hammering patterns. The unlathed bell seen on the crashes and hi-hats adds an additional dimension of dark, complex tone. These cymbals are dark yet sweet, complex yet articulate, classic yet modern. They're perfect for funk, fusion, gospel, pop, and rock drummers looking for a sound that is both timeless and contemporary. 

Cymbal Anatomy 101 - Sound Pure Gear Tip

In this edition of our cymbal series, Sound Pure percussion specialist Paul Spencer describes five physical characteristics of a cymbal (diameter, thickness, weight, bell shape, and curvature) and the impact that these characteristics have on the cymbal’s sound.

Manufacturer's Description from Zildjian

Available in a full offering of Crashes, Rides, and HiHats including larger and thinner sized cymbals to meet the versatile demands of today's popular music. K Sweet cymbals feature the random hammering of a K Zildjian and a traditional finish that keeps each instrument sounding beautiful, warm and vibrant.

K Sweet Crashes, available in 16"-20", are extra thin in weight with an unlathed bell and feature the traditional K style hammering technique that helps to deliver a darker sound with a fast attack and great response.
