Zildjian 20" K Constantinople Renaissance Ride Cymbal

Overview

Developed as the company flagship series, the K Constantinople cymbals are crafted to emulate the handmade cymbals Zildjian produced in the early 20th Century. Designed to develop a more complex character as they age, each cymbal is hand-hammered, producing a unique character even between cymbals of the same size and model.

The Renaissance Ride is a medium-thin cymbal featuring smooth lathing, an un-lathed underside bell and hammering clusters for a sedate response ideal for smaller environments.

Years of production: 1998-present

Composition: Zildjian Secret Alloy (80% copper, 20% tin, traces of silver)

Notable players: Ringo Starr, Billy Cobham, Glenn Kotche
