What We Think

This 20" Medium ride has a dark character, with stick definition that is clean and warm, but also provides a deep smoky wash and spread reminiscent of '60s era cymbals. For low volume and medium volume settings, there is enough weight to hear the wood in the stick but without being too heavy that you cannot crash the cymbal. The low profile bell is articulate with pristine tones and clarity without attracting too much attention. 2214 grams

Manufacturer's Description from Zildjian

Both early Turkish-made Ks and American Avedis Zildjians from the 1950s/1960s have become increasingly sought-out cymbals in recent times. All of the modern cymbal companies have their vintage-style lines and these Keropes are probably the closest yet.

Slightly more volume than the standard models, these are perfect for any musical setting. The slight increase in weight allows for more stick definition without sacrificing the integrated bell and rich, dark crash sound.
