20 is in the main slot here, right? "Middle" of the three, next to the tom?Sure there are. At least A custom fast crashes, A paper thin crashes, K sweet crashes and these K cluster crashes are paper thin.
Here are my 17", 18" and 20" K cluster crashes. As you can see and hear, they are so responsive that they open up even with finger taps. I absolutely love these!
There were 22” Kerope swish prototypes and I want one desperatelyEasy one here, since I've beaten dead horses about this on the forum before:
Bring back the 22" K Crash Ride in traditional finish. Keep it to 2600-2800g range. Large bell. Or, just bring out a 22" K Sweet Ride.
The only real all-around 22" K ride in that weight range is the Custom Dark, and that cymbal tends to have a wet, more sparkly tone. I'm talking about a basic, versatile cymbal that leans dry and low-pitched but still has good body and response.
K Light isn't it. Every one I've played has tended to be so light that it has no real body. Too much airiness. Bells tend to be smallish.
There is also a serious china missing from the lineup and has been since...always? Real low, trashy and musical. Something not targeted toward the metal bashers but players who want to use a china for more musical situations. K Custom Dark Thin China, perhaps? K Con China? Kerope China?
Istanbul knows how to do chinas. So do several other companies. Why doesn't Zildjian?
Other ideas: K Dark Medium-Thin Ride 22". Larger bells on Constantinoples.
At the very least, I think they should add something in the K Custom Dark line.There were 22” Kerope swish prototypes and I want one desperately
Previous 10 years it was a Skiba-modified 22" Zildjian High Definition Ride. Been looking for its replacement ever since I sold it when I sold all my gear. This is it. K Con Medium and K Con 22" Bounce were close but never perfect. So, yes, I can tell you my favorite ride going back about 20 years. Before the Skiba, it was a 20" EAK Light Ride.eah? what was it last year do you remember? ;
Same, would love some brilliant A's and K's.Z has already gone beyond my narrow scope of thinking. Nothing earth shattering here, bring back the Brilliant Finish to the A and K line. 22" / 24" A Ping & K Heavy Rides.
Ping is too clangy. Back when I was playing A Customs extensively I used both A and A Custom ping rides a lot but it was too clangy and I preferred the Projection ride, but that was only available in 20".But...in the 22 size...the A Custom medium and ping is probably “close enough for jazz.”
