Zildjian New for NAMM 2017

17 January, 2017

Zildjian just announced for 2017 their new line of K Custom “Special Dry” cymbals. This new line adds a new “voice” extension to their world renowned K Custom family of cymbals.

The Special Dry series has a three step hammering process, distinctive shape, and extra thin weight giving the cymbals a fast attack, while shutting down quickly with just enough sustain. The trashy dark sound, combined with the raw top appearance, make the new K custom Special Dry exactly what today’s drummers and percussionists are looking for.
