The new Kerope from Zildjian draws upon all of Zildjian's rich history and cymbal-making expertise to bring forth the most authentic vintage K recreation to date. The Kerope gives you the same darkness, complexity, and feel of vintage K cymbals of the '50s and '60s - Kerope is the closest you can get! Made of cast bronze, each cymbal is individually weighed and has its gram weight handwritten under the bell.Each cymbal is meticulously hand-crafted .
Made from a secret alloy (comprised of copper, tin, and traces of silver), this Zildjian Kerope was individually cast and shaped via a complex sequence of heating, rolling, shaping, hammering, and lathing. It's painstaking techniques and traditional methods like this that give each Zildjian Kerope its unique tone and broad range of expression. Cast bronze cymbals such as the Kerope present you with a rich, full-bodied sound that only improves with age. They also provide you with exceptional projection, clarity, and durability that far outstrips most other cymbals.
