Thin in weight and bow design and built with a randomized machine-hammering process to produce a dark, atmospheric character, the Zildjian 16" K Custom Dark Crash is smaller in size, but incredibly rich in its response. Producing a low-pitched dark response with a short decay, this cymbal can easily work as a left-side ride in jazz or add a new facet of crash to a garage setup.

    Great combined with my 18" crashes. Nice crash sound, quick decay. Great for accent "pops" with a rimshot.

    This crash is amazing. Warm body from the smallest tap, great full crash sound with a fast decay. Don’t expect to ride on this cymbal in small settings for much (if at all). Jumping from Sabian B8 Pros to these, i never knew what I was missing till now. Holy cow!

    I like that you don't have to hit it too hard to get a big, full bloom. It has a fast decay also. Like most Ks I love this cymbal!!!
