Here's what the Andertons Drum Department say about K Series Cymbals
The Zildjian K Constantinople cymbals are cymbals for drummers who want the highest quality of cymbal Zildjian offer. The sound is rich and warm, with lots of clarity and an amazing chick from the hi hats. The crashes give you a wide dynamic range and allow you to play the crash lightly and still get lots of body and stick definition. There is a Constantinople ride to fit in any drummer's cymbal bag, be it the over hammered, renaissance, bounce etc, they have dark and warm tones and great bells. The only drawback to this sound is that it doesn't come cheap.
A lot of people think that the Constantinople's are just "Jazz" cymbals and this isn't true. That is where the sound has been born from and where the cymbals have been used the most but these cymbals are more than that and will fit many genres of music. It's the drummer playing them that decides the sound to draw from them. The Constantinople's are not thick heavy cymbals and are similar to K and K custom, apart from clear, uniform lathing pattern and light hammering. A great cymbal if the drummer can afford it.
