The new K Constantinople Hi Bell Rides explore a bell shape that was modeled after a 100 year-old pair of Zildjian orchestral cymbals. The larger surface area of the bell provides a wider range of frequencies, yet is not overpowering.
Zildjian Hi Bell Rides also feature a combination of traditional K Constantinople lathing and innovative "Spiral" lathing techniques. The new technique of Spiral lathing allows the cymbal to remain controlled while still making the Ride "crashable" and delivering an articulate stick sound. The Spiral lathing is employed from the bell to the middle of the cymbal only, with traditional lathing on the remainder of the cymbal.
Plenty of give, texture and "crashability." Combination of top articulation. Higher in pitch.
