New to Zildjian 2019
We are excited to announce the new Zildjian cymbals already now. Some of them are actually in stock!
NEW ADDITIONS TO THE K FAMILY
Introducing the new K Cluster Crashes and the addition of the new 14” K Sweet Hi Hats. These new additions in 2019 complement the more traditional K Family cymbals and offer a broader range in dark, alternative sounds.
K CLUSTER CRASHES:
The new K Cluster Crashes venture into new sound colors that are dark, funky, and trashy, filling the drummer’s need for alternative sounds. The K Cluster Crashes feature the traditional K style hammering technique with additional “cluster” hammer marks generating a "dirty" sound that drummers seek. They are extra thin in weight and include an unlathed bell for greater tonal spread and additional sound frequencies.
- Available in 16", 18" and 20" sizes
- Traditional K Style hammering with specific "clusters"
- Traditional finish
14" K SWEET HIHATS:
The New 14” K Sweet HiHats feature extensive K hammering, a thin top and extra heavy bottom resulting in a solid chick. This popular size complements the 15" and 16" K Sweet HiHat cymbals.
The K Sweet Collection extends the iconic K Family into a new direction of tonal colors that are dark, sweet, and responsive. K Sweet cymbals feature the random hammering of a K Zildjian and a traditional finish that keeps each instrument sounding beautiful, warm and vibrant.
NEW ADDITIONS TO THE FX FAMILY
The 2019 reintroduction of the fx line includes the launch of Zildjian fx Stacks and the 22” fx Oriental Crash of Doom. The new fx cymbals have been crafted to meet the demands of today’s popular music, and the desire of drummers to create unique, and alternative accents to their sound, and truly express their creativity.
The new Zildjian fx Stacks allow drummers to explore a variety of pitches and quick, brilliant staccato sounds in one versatile cymbal pair. The fx Stack cymbal pairs are available in 8", 10", 12", 14" and 16" sizes.
Using the exclusive Cymbolt® mount, easily switch from a stack to a traditional Hi Hat setup, transitioning from bright, fast, and cutting sounds to trashy and raw, simply by adjusting the wingnut. The fx Stacks feature two unique alloys: a Proprietary Alloy top; and Cold Rolled Steel bottom.
22" ORIENTAL CRASH OF DOOM:
Not for the subtle, but those looking for a booming accent. The new 22” Zildjian fx Oriental Crash of Doom continues to offer the dark, explosive, monstrous sound that characterized the 20” size.
- Creates a “one of a kind” monster crash sound
- Trashy, dark, low-pitched sound
- Traditional finish, thin weight with a long sustain Ideal for drummers or percussionists looking for an explosive sound
