Hand crafted cymbals that look as dark and complex as they sound.
The Avedis Zildjian Company is proud to announce the addition of the Kerope (pronounced: Kè rõp) line to its legacy K family of cymbals. Reminiscent of cymbals from the 50s and 60s yet distinctly modern and relevant for today's music, the cymbal line is named in honor of Kerope Zildjian, who presided over one of the most storied periods in Zildjian history. From 1865 until his death in 1909 in Constantinople, Kerope continued to develop the classic K Zildjian sound, coveted by the world's greatest drummers. In memory of Kerope's contribution to cymbal making and his deep committment to craftmanship, the Zildjian family is introducing a line of cymbals that includes 14' and 15' Hats as well as 18', 19', 20', and 22' models.
