      The legendary K!

      Zildian's K crash cymbals are complex and sweet with tons of expressive possibilities. Dark and warm with a strong high end. The cymbal won't overpower the kit but gives the rest of your sound a smooth wash.


      A new ride is like a whole new personality for your playing.

      This is hands down the best cymbal I have ever owned, it is endlessly versatile. I have played this crash everywhere from the bar to church and it always performs just how I want it to. With every other cymbal in my set-up I have alternatives e.g. a deep ride and a thin ride, heavy hats and light hats, etc. This is my main crash and there is no other crash I would even think of putting in its main spot. I alway ask myself, "If this cymbal broke or was stolen, what would I replace it with" the answer to this question is the true test of wether you have a great cymbal or not, my answer for this cymbal is I would relpace it with the exact same cymbal no question!!! I did get my crash in brilliant finish because I dig how that looks and all my other cymbals are brilliant, it still sounds darker than my other cymbals, it is a very complex cymbal. If you are looking for a main cymbal that can rock when you need to rock and can mellow out when you are looking for sophisticated, this baby is for you.

      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:

      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.

      Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

      Buy this cymbal with confidence, today you'll received a boom stand free.
      I just received this cymbal and can't stop using it. No matter nylon or wood tip, it sounds amazing. Very loud ( high ) for open stages, and good acoustic for indoors. I hope don't bother my pastor.

      Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

      i have had the 18" cymbal for 8 months now and it works not only great as a crash, but sounds incredible used as a top hi-hat over my 18" medium thin cymbal. the wash is absolutely wonderful and really gives a definite sound. you won't be disappointed after buying this. worth the price!

      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.

      My 16

      By Justin-Ba4nf

      from New Orleans

      Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

      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!

      not what i expected

      By mmain

      from MI

      Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

      i bought a 19" used off another site for way cheap. i even saw a clip of the exact cymbal i was buying. however, now that it's arrived, it lacks the fullbodiness i expected, and every time i crash it, the edges wobble quite visibly, which is a little scary for me. this was quite a letdown

      Incredible Crash

      By Chimpson

      from Canada

      Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

      This is an INCREDIBLE Crash, and it is my favorite of all-time!! Even though it is expensive, it is still a really good value. I have the 18" Dark Thin K and it really sounds perfect. The only reason I did not give it a 5 on Features is the Bell, it's kind of bleh. Still though, buy this Crash! The Bell on the Zildjian K Rides however are perfect. I might even be getting the 17" soon. Anyways, if you need a reliable, full sounding musical Crash, buy this one!! It works for all types of music, the Dark side of it fits any hardcore rock or even Metal, but it is a perfectly made Jazz cymbal as well. Thx a bundle Zildjian :D

      Beatiful voice!

      By Jazz drummer87

      from San Diego

      Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

      I have the 14" and it has great attack (almost like a splash depending on how its played). I would suggest that you play soft-medium as they are thin. I like to push it sometimes to get that beautiful "maxed-out" shimmer sound out of it... however I mainly play this cymbal with the knowledge that it is thin and will break if I hit it too hard. I have had it for 2 years and there are no cracks or keyholing. Very musical cymbal and needs a musical drummer to be fully appreciated. Check it out at your local music store to see what everyone means.
