K Light Rides are excellent all-around rides equipped to perform in any genre. They are described as having a "smoky" sound, but are very responsive and able to generate a vast array of articulation and colors. The K Lights feature larger and smaller K style hammer marks, and smooth K Zildjian lathing customary found in other K Zildjians. Coming in at thin to medium-thin despite their name, they are crashable but also provide full, clear stick definition. The 24" model has a slightly smaller bell to retain a solid stick sound.
