Great performance for contemporary styles
The K Custom Series is where the Zildjian Sound Lab went into innovation overdrive. K Customs arm you with a collection of modern K voices like no other. In this range you'll find sounds that set the standard for modern cymbal design. Whether it's the warm shimmering tones of a ride cymbal, or the complex sizzle of a pair of hi hats, K Custom cymbals all create a uniquely beautiful sound. K Customs enable drummers to vary their K sounds to meet the demands of contemporary music.

Cast bronze cymbals for premium tone and projection
K Customs, like all Zildjian cast bronze cymbals, are individually poured and cast from raw molten metal. Each casting is cooled and sorted by weight for each cymbal model. Castings are then put through a complex sequence of heating, rolling, shaping, hammering, and lathing techniques unique to each cymbal range. Cast bronze cymbals have a rich, full-bodied sound that improves with age. They also have greater projection, clarity, and durability than any other cymbals. Zildjian cast cymbals are made from the Zildjian secret alloy, which is comprised of 80% copper, 20% tin, and traces of silver.

Session Hats

I bought these hats about 12 years ago, and they have been on every rehearsal, live, and studio session I've done. The top cymbal is a bit thicker than the bottom cymbal which might throw some people off as to how they sound, but they are the most musical hats I've played. They can cover any genre. The foot chick is very audible because of the different circumference, and if you set the tilter on your hi hat stand correctly, it's a whole new dimension to what you can get out of these. The heavy hammering has a very pleasing effect and you'd be hard pressed to find a pair that sounds, and more importantly 'fits' jus about every musical style. I highly recommend these. The added bonus is they last forever.
