The New Zildjian Kerope Cymbals

Zildjian Kerope Cymbals

2014 seems to be the year a lot of established brands are looking back over their history and revisiting old products with a whole new outlook. Zildjian for example have looked right back through their rich history and picked some of the best cymbals to bring up to date.  What’s interesting about Zildjian is how they make their cymbals, it's still a very traditional process and although the technology may differ the ethos remains the same. The passion the Zildjian team have for creating quality cymbals is evident in this “behind the scenes” video.

Moving forward to 2014 sees Zildjian, who are still very much still a family business, introduce their new Kerope series. These cymbals are available as 14” and 15” Hats as well as 18”, 19”, 20” and 22” models, created from designs that have been kept in Zildjians’ archives for decades.

The Kerope name is a tribute to Mr Kerope Zildjian himself who ran Zildjian from 1865 until his death in 1909 and these cymbals have been lovingly handcrafted following designs and specifications from cymbals of the 50’s and 60’s.

These are highly crafted cymbals that draw their inspiration from the very best cymbals in the Zildjian vault. We carefully studied every nuance of decades-old cymbals -- their bells, profiles, hammering, lathing, tapers, and weights. Our goal was to achieve an old world look and sound being sought after by so many artists today,” said Paul Francis, Zildjian Director of Research & Development

History Aside, Zildjian wanted to make these cymbals to be very relevant for today’s drummer so a lot of input was gathered from some of the top artists in the world and in particular Zach Danzinger who worked very closely on the project, Here we have Eric Harland & Kendrick Scott.
