The tonal identity of the Kerope series can be described as dark and complex. When playing the cymbal you can hear the rich detail that gives life and character to your playing. This 18" Crash is the smallest crash in the Kerope series, and so is the highest in pitch. However, it still has plenty of depth and mysterious character for a rich and brooding crash.
Zildjian builds on its long illustrious history as a cymbal maker to create the Kerope series design; a dark sounding authentic vintage recreation using a 14-step process designed from 390 years of experience. This unique design gives Kerope cymbals a played in feel right out of the box.
With the Kerope series, you get all the awesome feel and style of high quality cymbals of the 50s and 60s, yet with a distinctive modern flavour to bring them in-line with the playing styles and cymbal technology for the drummers of today.
