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

The Medium Thin Low Ride is marked by a full, rich response and dark, low-end wash. The cymbal features a larger swath of hammering on the lip for added character.

 Years of production: 1998-present

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

Notable players: Ringo Starr, Billy Cobham, Glenn Kotche
