gewaltige Unterschiede innerhalb einer Serie
Wuggu, 13.11.2009
Ich habe dieses Becken als Ergänzung zu meinen 15er,16er und 17er K Thin Dark Crash Becken gekauft.
Während die vorhandenen 15er bis 17er K Thin Crash Becken klanglich eine Reihe bildeten, hatte das erstandene 18er doch einen deutlich kräftigeren Klang, sofern man das Becken kräftig genug angeschlagen hat. Die kleineren Becken fauchten auch bei leiserer Spielweise schon schön, während das 18er bei leiserer Spielweise eher nach einem Gong klang. Jetzt hängt das Becken in einem Zweitset, dass ich für laute Musik verwende.
Da setzt es sich neben einem 20" Crashbecken auch sehr gut durch und macht auch Spaß. Trotzdem bin ich darüber erstaunt, wie unterschiedlich die Becken der K Serie klingen können. Teilweise muss man zueinander passende Becken längere Zeit suchen.

K > All.
AntoineBlueMaze, 13.01.2013
De la très très bonne cymbale. Elles sont simplement pour moi les meilleures, je joue de la pop, du rock principalement.
J'ai longtemps hésité avec la gamme Avedis, le son est plus clair.

Le son de cette cymbale pourrait se situer grossièrement entre une crash et une ride, bien qu'on se rende bien compte qu'elle est trop fine pour constituer une ride.

Le son produit est très profond, un peu gras je dirais, il se diffuse sans fausse note, vraiment un très beau son, envoutant.
Le bon vieux son K, peut-être remis au goût du jour, je crois déceler une petite différence avec celle que je possède qui datent des années 80, la fabrication n'étais pas la même non plus ;)
La cloche est très plaisante à utiliser également.


Concernant la fabrication, je ne peux émettre d'avis, je n'ai aucune connaissance afin d'émettre un avis, je précise tout de même l'évidence, elle est de très très bonne facture, pas d'irrégularité, j'ai tendance à frapper fort sur mes cymbales, aucune déformation ou autre alteration de la forme de la cymbale.


Si vous savez que ce son vous convient, foncez.

Sehr gut klingendes Becken mit suboptimaler Verarbeitung
AudioPhil, 22.05.2019
Die K-Reihe von Zildjian hat nicht ohne Grund einen guten Ruf - zumindest in Sachen Klang. Das 18er Thin Crash, welches ich geordert hatte, war schön explosiv, sehr ausgewogen im Klang, eher dunkel / tief angesetzt, mit tollem Rauschanteil, sehr gut verwendbarem Ping (-> alternatives Ride) und stets gut kontrollierbar.

Ich musste es leider noch einmal umtauschen, da es herstellerseitig Qualitätsmängel hatte, welches bei dem aufgerufenen Kurs aus meiner Sicht mal gar nicht geht. Offenbar hat Zildjian seinen QC-Prozess nicht im Griff.
