Great things always come in small packages. True for gifts, true for cymbals, too! But calling this Zildjian a mini china seems out of line because it really does sound and play much larger than the name would imply. The china rings for just a short time after its struck to create more impact and less distraction, and its deep, dry and shimmering sounds project well in smaller and larger venues.
Developed by Kerope Zildjian way back in the late 19th century, K cymbals to this day inspire drummers from all walks of musical life, from soft cool jazzers to pop rockers to drummers who march to a completely different beat outside mainstream forums. As they were back in Keropeís day, K Zildjian cymbals still continue to be made from the Zildjian familyís exclusive cast bronze alloy. Itís a formula so secretive, itís only revealed to a select few Zildjian family members on a need-to-know basis. Elaborate random hammering and controlled wide groove lathing work K Zildjians into versatile cymbals that push the limits with a wide-ranging blend of high and low frequencies that can be mellow or intense. How you play them determines the sounds you hear.
For drummers looking to add-on or upgrade, the K Zildjian is perfect as that first china or as a secondary go-to china. Once you put wood stick to metal cymbal and give this china a go, youíll be glad itís there for you every time you play.
