Designed as a modern rendition of the classic K series, the K Custom line was designed to provide added volume while retaining dark tonal character. Utilizing machine-hammered techniques, the K Customs feature a drier, more staccato attack and decay with more pronounced projection. The 17" Hybrid Crash, designed by Akira Jimbo, responds sharply as a crash and also offers stick articulation when played on the bow and bell.
