Zildjian sound samples
One of Japan's top drummers, Akira Jimbo has collaborated on a new set of exciting K Custom Hybrid cymbals.
Available in ride, crash, hi-hats, China and splash models, the K Custom Hybrid Series combines the unlathed,
brilliant finish of the K Custom Ride on the inner half with the traditionally finished K Zildjian lathing on
the outer half of the cymbal. Besides having a cool new look, this results in two different sounds and dynamics
depending exactly where the cymbal is played. Additionally, the unlathed section helps to control the wash and
sustain--an added plus for recording and live gigs.
The 20-inch ride amazingly combines the defined stick attack and strong bell sound of the K Custom Ride with the
sound of a thin, lathed crash. The 17 and 19-inch crashes, 9 and 11-inch splashes and 19-inch China also feature
a thinner design, but project like heavier cymbals due to the unlathed bell area.
The 13 º-inch hi-hats, like all the Hybrids use Hybrid Hammering where reversed Mastersound grooves are caused
by hammering into the bottom of the cymbal from the opposite side. This results in increased surface area contact
between the top and bottom cymbals, a warmer chick and wash than normal Mastersound hammering.
