Crafted with a light weight through the bow, complex over-hammered surface, and highly responsive character that can easily complement or cut through a mix, the Zildjian 18" K Thin Dark Crash is a jack of all trades for a cymbal arsenal. Capable of delivering atmospheric, explosives crashes with a slightly elongated decay, this cymbal's size and character also make it a great understudy as a left-side ride or accent piece. Whether you're headed to the jazz club for an evening session or interested in adding more flavor to your fusion, pop, or rock setup, the Thin Dark Crash delivers on every front.

    This is a great all purpose crash, put it in my right hand power position. The one I've been looking for.

    It was exactly what I needed. A great "work-horse" all around crash.

    I love thin crash cymbals because they open up really easily and get out of the way fast. It doesn’t feel like this cymbal would withstand incorrect hitting technique, but this cymbal cuts through without bashing on it. I use this as my main right side crash and it works perfect! You could probably also put some tape on the bottom and use it as a second or third ride.

    This is my favorite line of crash cymbals from Zildjian. I currently play the 18" thin and I've also owned the 20" thin, they're all smooth like butter and roar like thunder.
