Zildjian 18-inch Kerope Crash Cymbals are individually hand-crafted to bring you the sounds of the 50's and 60's, using a secret 14-step process that includes all of the advancements the company has made in their nearly 400-year-old history.
This cymbal's crash is full-bodied and complex in character, starting out dark and finishing with long-ringing icy overtones that ring for quite a long time. The small bell creates a deep, earthy tone, while the ride is surprisingly clear. You could certainly use this cymbal as an alternative ride!
A proprietary patina process gives these cymbals the sound, look, and feel of instruments that have been around for decades, with a complex and dark sound.
Use these cymbals anywhere you want the audience to talk about how tasty your crashes sound, especially in the jazz/funk/blues genres. To further add to the quality, Zildjian has hand-written the gram weight of each cymbal under the bell.
