Norwell, MA:The Avedis Zildjian Company will unveil two unique K Custom Dark Complex Rides from its Sound Lab at the 2012 NAMM Show. Unlathed, but extensively hammered throughout the body and bell, the K Custom Dark Complex Ride features a proprietary satin finish that adds to its unique appearance. Available in 21” and 22” sizes, these Rides are dark and complex, with good stick definition and just enough spread. Both sizes are medium-thin in weight.
Another innovation of the Zildjian Sound Lab is the K Custom Hybrid Trash Smash. Designed in conjunction with Akira Jimbo, the 19” Trash Smash is ideal for both crashing and riding, either on the outer edge or main body. With its inverted bell, extensive hammering, and thin weight, this cymbal lives up to its name, delivering plenty of trash when it’s smashed. A very playable and controllable cymbal, the K Custom Hybrid Trash Smash features an abundance of overtones for a completely new sound. The K Custom Hybrid Trash Smash is thin in weight.
