24" Zildjian KR24R Limited Edition Kerope ride, 3240 grams
Named after the company's most successful president of the 19th Century, Kerope cymbals are hand-crafted by Zildjian's most experienced cymbal smiths to emulate the look, feel and sound of a vintage cymbal. The Kerope series is made in a fourteen-step process similar to the process originated in Turkey; the cymbals are finished with a proprietary patina which provides a warmer, more sedate character and vintage visual aesthetic. Each cymbal features its weight in grams written on the under side of the bell.
The Kerope Ride pairs a medium-light weight with a 24" construction for a smoky, responsive sticking presence and large, sustained wash.
