Lets face it, these are probably the most expensive crashes Ziljidian has to offer (at the time of writing).
If you are reading this, with the potential interest of buying a K-Constantinople Crash, then be assured, you will not be disappointed.
I purchased an 18" & 16" which were pretty paired up in terms of chromatic pitch... A welcomed Bonus !
The sound they produce though, is simply, mind mindbogglingly good. Complex, dark and very responsive. With an incredible dark driven trashy wash. the cymbal really does ooze sophistication in a non pretentious manner.
I use these in Jazz, and slightly more modern electronic environments & sound scapes etc etc , which is a bit niche admittedly, but hopefully signals versatility. I'm certain, these would fit in about musical genre, aside from thrash metal maybe.
The craftsmanship of the cymbal, is exquisite... You can but admire the work that has shaped this wonderful plate of metal to produce such sonic paradise.
Compared to the 'Old Style' Constantinople, of which I have tried, until proven otherwise, I much prefer the New Style. There is a trashy difference of the overall undertone, compared to the older style constantinople and they just sound much more alive when played in either a live scenario or recorded.
