What We Think

New for 2018, 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. 

Manufacturer's Description from Zildjian

The K Zildjian Sweet Collection extends the iconic K Family into a new direction of tonal colors that are dark, sweet, and responsive. 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 Rides, available in 21" and 23", deliver darker overtones than the legendary A Zildjian Sweet Ride. They are medium thin in weight, crashable, and have a fully lathed appearance. These rides are your new workhorse, featuring a clear bell and clean stick definition for all genres of music.
