North American Ks

It seems like you have a North American K Zildjian. These are different from the K Zildjian Istanbul cymbals, but included here so people don't mix them up.

Click on the image which most closely matches your cymbal.

Is there an extra bottom line starting with 2 letters? Do the letters look like they are formed by a series of thinner lines?


Is the stamp like the one above but without the extra serial number line?


Does the Arabic portion look like this? Is the K larger than ZILDJIAN? No MADE IN TURKEY wrapping around the crescent moon?


Does it say A Zildjian rather than K Zildjian like this one?


Start over with the K Zildjian Istanbul Key
