What We Think

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.

 

Manufacturer's Description from Zildjian

These hand crafted cymbals look as they sound – rich, dark, and complex. Reminiscent of cymbals from the 50s and 60s yet distinctly modern and relevant for today’s music, Kerope cymbals further solidify Zildjian’s place as the originator of the authentic K sound. Highly crafted cymbals that draw their inspiration from the very best cymbals in the Zildjian vault. We carefully studied every nuance of decades-old cymbals -- their bells, profiles, hammering, lathing, tapers, and weights to achieve an old world look and sound being sought after by so many artists today.
