Zildjian Kerope (pronounced: Ke rop) is the latest addition to the K family.
These handmade cymbals look like they sound - rich, dark and complex.
Very reminiscent of cymbals from the 50s and 60s, but more distinct, modern and relevant to today's music. They take their name from Kerope Zildjian, who led the company through one of the most storied periods in Zildjian's history. From 1865 until his death in 1909 in Constantinople, Kerope developed the classic K. Zildjian sound so coveted by the world's best drummers. To commemorate Kerope's contribution to development and his deep commitment to craftsmanship, Zildjian introduces a series of cymbals that includes 14" and 15", hi-hats, as well as 18", 19", 20" and 22" models. Note that Kerope is not defined as ?crash? or ?ride?, ?thin? or ?medium?, etc., but Kerope actually has all of these characteristics. Instead, each cymbal is labeled with its exact weight on the underside of the cymbal. The definition is up to you?
