Zildjian K Constantinople 22" Renaissance Ride


Developed in conjunction with renowned jazz drummer Adam Nussbaum, the 20” K Constantinople Renaissance Ride is a versatile instrument that works well in small-to-medium sized musical settings and complements the original 22", but with a little less volume output. Its unique hammering features borrow from other K and K Custom series, resulting in a beautiful hybrid with a wide spectrum of sound applications. Three rows of over hammering and four series of large hammer clusters on top give it a slightly 'trashy' sound, and beautiful spread of dark overtones. This cymbal features smooth lathing on both sides for a little extra give, and a smaller bell than the 22" that is left unlathed underneath and overhammered on top. The result is a 20" ride that can handle strong accents and has a nice initial wash, but is still very articulate and easy to control in its smaller size.

For 400 years, Zildjian has singularly focused on your limitless musical expression, by creating instruments with infinite sound capabilities.  It's been our commitment to creating the sounds that excite your imagination, and the tools that unleash your playing potential, that has kept us at the forefront of music across continents, across genres, and across centuries.  From Avedis Zildjian's first strike of the anvil at the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire's palace to the 15th generation of Zildjian Family members today, our pursuit to create the best and most relevant instruments and tools continues.  From our factory floors to our global Artist family, wherever you are on your musical journey, we hope to inspire you and help you take your sound to the next level...and beyond. 


When it comes to making cymbals, we are referred to as the “Gold Standard”. This is ironic because, in 1618, alchemist Avedis Zildjian was trying to make gold. Instead, he accidentally formulated what's arguably the best cymbal material on the planet. Today at Zildjian, we still use that same secret alloy in every cast cymbal we craft. Avedis’ spirit of experimentation and discovery lives on in our factory; it continually drives us each day to create the highest quality instruments we can, so you can continually create, experiment, and discover your own sound.


In 1623, the Sultan granted Avedis the family name "Zildjian," which literally means "cymbal smith". After leaving the palace and starting his own foundry, he spent years perfecting his cymbal-making techniques. His process of combining copper, tin, and silver is still a closely guarded family secret, and the casting it produces possesses an extraordinary musical quality and tone. Our skilled craftsmen combine old-world cymbal-making artistry with modern technology, and a dash of cutting-edge innovation to transform Avedis’ alloy into boundless varieties of superior-sounding cymbals for every genre of music.
