The original Vintage model. More attack, projection and articulation than the 18" Medium Light pairs. The Vintage series possess a rich, powerful and dark expression of a cymbal sound normally found only in cymbals over one hundred years old.
K Constantinople Vintage Orchestral pairs give the percussionist a cymbal voice for pronounced crashes and quicker passages. They project a drier sound, with more articulation for executing short, syncopated rhythms. The Vintage K's are generally heavier in comparison to other Orchestral K's, so their sound can be described as a little more 'platey', particularly when playing the Medium Heavy weight. Resonating with complex harmonics, Vintage Orchestral cymbals possess a bold, dark sound that is characteristic of all K Constantinople hand cymbals.
