Dark and classic, with modern clarity. The finest qualities of Constantinople passed down through the ages. Crash it for rock, ride it for jazz. The Constantinople 22'' medium-thin ride is buttery and soft to ride on, yet explosive when crashing. The larger diameter enhances the already clear stick definition and provides a darker sound than the 20''. Dark and washy undertones protrude every delicate stroke, but they are well-controlled and don't ring out. The bell tone is incredibly full, dark and clear, with an industrial-like sound. Perfect if you want real impact.
The low profile of the 20'' Constantinople ride ensures a lower-pitch timbre, with a controlled sustain that's ideal for playing fast passages. Although it has its roots in jazz, the K Zildjian Constantinople ride has a huge bell tone and is super crashable, making it great for jazz, rock and everything in-between.
