A versatile crash cymbal that every K Series lover needs.

The Zildjian K Sweet Crash Cymbal provides a dark, sweet tone with enhanced resonance in a versatile and responsive package. Its thin weight and unlathed bell allow notes to sing with a long sustain and rich harmonics. The traditional K-style hammering technique helps produce a fast, articulate response that cuts through musical textures.

Thin Weight and Unlathed Bell Create Resonance

The K Sweet Crash is crafted to be extra thin, which results in a resonant, vibrant tone with lush harmonics. Its unlathed bell further enhances resonance and sustain, allowing notes to bloom and shimmer. The thin weight also provides a sensitive, articulate response that reacts quickly to your playing.

Traditional Hammering Provides Fast, Articulate Response

Zildjian employs their traditional K-style hammering technique on the K Sweet Crash, which involves painstakingly hammering the cymbal by hand. This process helps produce a fast, articulate response with a musical, shimmering quality. The hammering also strengthens the cymbal, allowing it to open up fully without cracking.

Versatile for Various Musical Settings

With its blend of darkness, resonance and articulation, the K Sweet Crash pairs well with a variety of musical styles. Its versatile tone works for rock, jazz, electronic and fusion, as well as orchestral settings. The crash is available in 16", 17", 18", 19" and 20" sizes so you can choose the ideal option for your needs.

High-Quality, Handcrafted in the USA

Like all Zildjian cymbals, the K Sweet Crash is handcrafted in the USA using high-quality, proprietary alloys. Zildjian has been producing premium cymbals for nearly 400 years, using traditional techniques passed down through generations. You can rely on their expertise and craftsmanship to deliver a professional-quality instrument.
