Le côté obscur de la force
K rider, 20.06.2017
Cette Dark Ride est effectivement très sombre, autant qu'une Constantinople medium thin low ou bounce ride, mais le wash est très réduit.
Pas de halo mystérieux, mais une résonance grave aux fréquences délimitées, le ping est puissant et rond, le dôme bien sonore.
Seul le crash est balourd, contrairement aux Constantinople qui explosent et révèlent subitement des aigus insoupçonnés. Cette K Custom, comme de nombreuses K ride n'est pas dans son meilleur rôle en cymbale crash.
On peut lui trouver de multiples situations où elle fera merveille, big band ou grand orchestre où puissance et précision sont préférables à des résonances subtiles, salle un peu dure où les aigus agressent les oreilles non protégées, répétitions dans un salon où une Constantinople fatigue les autres musiciens, restaurant où il faut jouer feutré, là il faudra jouer doucement, la cymbale ne s'en chargera pas d'elle-même. Elle sera à sa place en variété où elle se fondra dans le mix, plus que dans un trio jazz où l'on attend nettement plus de richesse et de possibilités sonores.
C'est une excellente cymbale avec une personnalité marquée, sans être un monstre d'originalité, qui sera à son aise dans de multiples situations.
