  • Well here’s a collectible Zildjian! This 20” is from the now-famous Zildjian K Constantinople’s FIRST FEE YEARS - the Original “LIGHT”. 

  • It’s 23 years old and wonderfully CLEAN! Strong logos.  Armand Zildjian emblazoned logo on the underside. 

  • And a 23-year-aged thin K Constantinople 20” LIGHT is a damn nice cymbal!  Hell it’s almost “vintage” by now.  

  • This is the DRIEST one of these I’ve ever heard!

  • Weighing in at an eponymously LIGHT 1961 grams, this 1st Run K Cons is aptly named.

  • This ORIGINAL 20” does it all - great stick attack - especially on this one - compliments of that 23 year aged mellowing.  The metal has aged and settled in beautifully.  It’s DARK sounding and low pitched, it sounds vintage because mostly halfway there. 

  • Being a thin LIGHT, it has a subtle complexity that is simply gorgeous - much mellower than the newer Renaissance and Bounces rides that have yet to settle. 

  • This is the K Cons Thin LOW before there was a Thin Low.

  • At 1961 grams this Original K Constantinople Light is incredibly crashable. It’s hammered all the way out to the edge like these early ones were - rippled plain.  Telltale early K Constantinople look. Very dark tone. 

  • Main Ride. Light DARK DRY Ride. Left Side Crash Ride  - whatever you decide this 23-year-old Original K Constantinople LIGHT 20” is one of the nicest modern Zildjians you will come across….becoming less modern with each passing day.

  • Why buy the stiff new one for even MORE money and then wait decades for it to chill?!! This one is very rare, sounds incredible and definitely clean and collectible.
