Zildjian K-Custom Session Ride 20 "

Benjamin aus Z., 19.02.2010
To buy a new ride, I went to Thomann to Treppendorf and tested what was going on. I chose the K-Custom Session Ride, which I would like to describe here as objectively and neutrally as possible. I point out that everything I write here is my personal feeling and tastes are different.

Appearance:
The look is the hammer. The brilliant finish shines the basin in the light and the black K of the pool company Zildjian always stands for quality. In any case, a real eye-catcher in every set!

Sound:
When you play, you notice what makes the high price. The basin sounds quite deep with little overtones. The bell is bright and penetrating. The reason I gave only 4/5 stars is that the sustain is too long. This is, as I said, taste. When playing, it takes a long time until you hear nothing more. In addition, the pool rocks quite quickly. The sound is very strong. Although Zildjian says that this basin embodies the modern jazz sound, it would be too loud for me personally.

The crawling of the pelvis is very loud and deep, and it also sounds somewhat 'hard' compared to the K-Custom Dark Ride.

Processing:
As always with Zildjian is top, there are no quirks.

Conclusion:
If you want a penetrating, deep sound, should access! For jazz, I would rather recommend the Dark Ride. Otherwise it fits in my opinion to all the musical directions very well and integrates well into a set with other Zildjians (eg my A-Custom Crash).
