Rhythm (4/2006) test results:
While Vintage Ks will always be sought after by collectors, these cymbals show that modern equivalents can sound just as special. If the existing K Constantinople range was already held in high regard, these new cymbals manage to surpass the standards set. Paul Francis has taken over where Armand Zildjian left off and produced some of the most complete rides that Ive ever heard, while the hi-hats are nothing short of a revelation. All of the cymbals here work across various dynamic boundaries and though they have clearly been designed with the needs of jazzers in mind, they should appeal to a broad range of drummers. Musical players from pretty much any genre would be advised to take a listen. Outstanding cymbals that are full of character and bursting with musicality. Such individuality means the cost is high, the range is currently restricted to rides and hi-hats only.
Rhythm test results:
Clearly these cymbals are outstanding, while being far more versatile than you might think they are not so easily musically pigeonholed. There is no denying they are really expensive but they are well worth the investment.

If you've got the cash, the K Constantinoples are well worth the investment.
