The K Zildjian Series--Sound That's Always in Style.
Legend. Legacy. The innovative cymbal work of Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, Tony Williams or any one of a sweeping collection of the greatest drummers in history. They've all been fueled by K Zildjian cymbals. The deep, dry and shimmering sounds developed by Kerope Zildjian in 19th Century Turkey continue to inspire drummers today. Elaborate hammering and lathing work our secret alloy into versatile cymbals with a wide-ranging blend of high and low frequencies that can be mellow or intense. It all depends on how you play them.

  • Alloy: Zildjian Cast Bronze: 80% Copper, 20% Tin, Traces of Silver.
  • Hammering: Exclusive K Zildjian random hammering.
  • Lathing: Fine pattern of narrow symmetrical grooves that create just enough stiffness.
  • Finish: Traditional or Brilliant available on most K Series models.
  • Sound: Beautifully dark, dry, warm and vibrant.

Zildjian Cast Bronze Cymbals
Cast Bronze cymbals are individually poured and cast from raw molten metal. Each casting is cooled and sorted by weight for each cymbal model, then the castings are put through a complex sequence of heating, rolling, shaping, hammering, and lathing techniques unique to each cymbal range.

Cast Bronze cymbals have a rich, full-bodied sound that improves with age, and have greater projection, clarity and durability than any other cymbals. Zildjian cast cymbals are made from the Zildjian secret alloy, which is comprised of 80% copper, 20% tin, and traces of silver.

Among Zildjian's 16" crashes this and the Zildjian K Custom 16-Inch Session Crash Cymbal are probably the best. Like that one, this opens fast on attack and quickly decays. That makes it perfect for marking the next phrase or ending a fill to mark the first beat of the next bar without lingering sustain.

Because this has a lower fundamental (although it is actually higher pitched than the name implies) it will work well for recording. It also will work beautifully as a sonic color if you use a few crash cymbals. It's certainly the polar opposite of its bigger sibling - Zildjian K 18-Inch Dark Crash Cymbal Thin - so pairing the two will give you a wide range of sounds in your sound palette.

I prefer cymbals that I can both ride and crash. In that respect this falls a bit short because it sounds tinny when you ride it. However, since this is sold strictly as a crash cymbal it deserves every one of the five stars I awarded and should be on your short list of crash cymbals if you are in the market for a new sound.

The crash has a great dark sound and came very promptly. The thing I was disappointed in is that the description says "new" but it is clearly a used crash. There are the marks from it being on a crash stand and also scratches on the crash and some discoloring on the back. I felt like I had been a little deceived and am disappointed in Amazon. I know these crashes usually go for a long time but I would still like to have the comfort to know it is a new crash. I need it for a performance I am playing in 2 weeks, so I don't have time to return it but I hope that this is an exception and unintentional.
