The real history would take awhile. Let’s just keep it very simple...and to current made As and Ks. Basically in a nutshell, As are brighter B20 cymbals and tend to be very versatile to fit many styles. They tend to have only a moderate (if that) amount of complexity in the tone. Ks represent a darker tone, and in general, have a greater amount of hammering. They have a more complex nature than the As. Depending on which K that you’re dealing with, some of those can be quite versatile as well. Zildjian has so many variations nowadays within each line, which could cause some confusion to a newbie.I wish I could get a nutshell answer as to the diff (besides price) between the A's and the K's. I've asked once already...
This is only a high level overview (without going into the deep history). Hope this helps.
