I've played and owned MANY, MANY crashes over the years and the 16" K Dark Thin is my all-time favorite. I generally like thinner cymbals (except for my ride and bottom hi-hat) and even though I play various styles of music, this crash never lets me down. The quality of this cymbal is VERY consistent considering it's a hammered cymbal. I broke one after about 6 years (hey, it IS thin, and it IS my main crash) and the one I replaced it with is very, very close in sound. I give it a four in value because of the price -- i don't think Ks should cost THAT much more than any of Zildjian's other crashes. But, I'll pay what I have to for it. I also wouldn't be too afraid of cracking this cymbal because its thinner size allows for more "give." It does, however, bend and become kind of china-ish sounding. So be careful when hitting the edge. You really can't go wrong!

If your looking for a crash that explodes with musicality and can function in any musical situation,these are the ones. So dark and tonefull,can whisper or rock. The tone in the size 19 range sounds like the crash in "Reeling in the years" by Steely Dan. I Highly recommend !!

      Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

      I was impressed by the sound that I'd heard on the various YouTube videos for this crash but I was worried that it might take a little bit more force to get that full bodied sound from such a big cymbal. However, it was very responsive and I was pleasantly surprised bell. Its actually bigger than it seems in the pictures reaching all the way to the top of the K. I actually prefer this bell to the one on my 20" K custom dark ride.

      • Rock

      Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

      This cymbal rocks. I play rock music. Very big and wooshy. In the context of my kit it sounded a little 'tin'ier than at the store where i tested it, but this could be because all of my other cymbals havent been cleaned in years.

      My kit: Tama rockstar.
      Other cymbals I have: K custom fast crash
      A custom ride
      Sabian AAXtreme Chinese

      But overall a great buy.

      Exactly What A Crash Should Sound Like

      By Avar

      from Boston, MA

      Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

      I own the 17" and 18" (also have a 20" K Custom Dark Ride and a 19" K Custom Hybrid Crash). These cymbals are the best in the Zildjian line. If you were considering A Customs don't bother, these outperform in all aspects. Not too dark, not too bright - they scream quality.

      The epitome of beautiful

      By Sean Osbourne

      from San Francisco, CA

      Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

      I have had the 19'' for two years. I play in a Black Metal band as well as a jazz ensemble (interesting combination, I know). And let me just say, that contrary to popular belief, this cymbal is NOT just for jazz. I use it as my main crash when I'm playing with my band, and when playing jazz I use it primarily as a ride. It has a strong, dark but warm at the same time when crashed, and buttery, warm and with beautiful overtones when used as a ride. It is safe to say that this is the best sounding, most versatile cymbal I have ever heard.

      If you're looking for that dirty, fast, trashy sound than this is the crash for you. Louder than you would expect from a K series crash and spreads with the lightest strike of a stick.
