Absolutely love the product, great sound, great quality
Euan Jenkins, 17.08.2017
I had been researching cymbals for a while and decided to go with these to start off my more higher quality cymbal setup.

The cymbals quality is fantastic and they sound great, the sound is quite dark but has a lot of volume and richness to it, a very well made cymbal which fits easily into most styles, but be careful! Don't just buy the cymbals for the brand. The cymbals have a very specific sound which not everyone would like. The hi-hats I got for instance are very dark and the 16" crash is also dark; but I personally love that sound and i think it's great. I looked into tons of different cymbals and tried most of them out in person, and so I would suggest doing the same thing before buying this set if possible.

The price is quite high, but is immediately justified when you see the time and effort that has gone into each cymbal. A truly fantastic sounding cymbal set and would recommend for any advanced drummer looking to get a good set of cymbals!

All round excellent cymbals
JCWIlliams, 26.03.2020
The K Custom Dark box set is exceptional value for money. The 4 cymbals in the box would add up to a far bigger price if bought seperately. The Cymbal quality is as you would expect for professional grade cymbals. The sound quality of each cymbal is very musical.
The 14" hi hats have a really good sound either open or closed a good "chick" one of the best hi-hats I have played.
The 16" crash is good with a defined dark crash sound however the 18" crash is just better. It has a great attack and projects itself well.
The 20" ride is lovely however the ping isn't as defined as I would prefer, however that is personal taste.
Overall, the cymbals are excellent, my favorites are the hats and the 18" crash, the 16" crash would be third followed by the ride however all of them are worthwhile purchases (and being in the box set they were all excellent value)

The first time I used them I was a little disappointed. The problem was that my ears were calibrated to the previous cymbals which were extremely loud and cutting.

After using them for a while I came to realize that this is how the cymbals should sound and behave. Correct, warm sound, good decay, good pitch, good everything.

I am now extremely pleased of the set.

Cymbals that making you play better
Ilya Getsin, 06.05.2020
I have two sets of cymbals Paiste Signature and these K Custom Dark cymbals. Each set is beautiful, but these sets are different.

Paiste Signature set has cutting higher pitched sound. More agressive and bright cymbals with sandy character.

Zildjian are warm and not so agressive. These cymbals sound excellent in not very loud situations. Also they work nicely in studio, when you need wide mid-range spectrum of sound. Not too bright, not too dark.

And what is really cool is that K Custom Dark Cymbals are not thin. Medium weight allows them to give full sound for rock music, work well with mics on stage.
