    Default Zildjian K Logos

    I have an 18" K dark med-thin crash and a 19" K dark med-thin crash. I bought the 18" new and the 19" a week before off ebay. The seller claimed it was only 3 months old and it appeared to be, so I took his word for it. But there's something different about the logos on it and I've noticed them on other K's. My 18" has the Zildjian logo on the bottom and my 19" has a K logo on the bottom. Its not really a big deal, but I am curious is to why. Thanks.

    The older K's had the Zildjian logo on bottom, and the newer K's have the K logo on the bottom.

    All my K's and K Customs have the Zildjian logo on the underside.

    The early 80's K's had the K on the bottom. At some point after their introduction in the 1980ís, they put the Zildjian logo on the bottom. Recently (around 2005) Zildjian started putting the K logo on the bottom again. I really donít know if it is a limited run or certain models, but there are recently made Kís with the K logo on the bottom.

    You know what my bass player said when he first saw a K cymbal?... he said
    "What, is that from Kmart or something..." He's such an idiot!

    The post-2001 K Zildjians also have slightly different lathing & hammering patterns.
