great WHATEVER cymbal

Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

i have the 18 inch crash and MAN does it sound amazing! when i got it i had already liked the K series since playing a set in my schools jazz band. i really liked the sound so i decided to buy the 18 (they had the same one on the jazz set)i got it thinking it was only going to be for when i play jazz but man i was wrong. i can use it for everything and it sounds great for everything i play. i want to get a 16 or 17 to add to my set in the future. i LOVE this cymbal and its %100 worth the money for it!

      Comments about Zildjian K Dark Thin Crash Cymbal:

      I bought an 18" model to be used as the only cymbal (along with hi-hat) on a mini kit that I take to house parties and acoustic jams. This baby does it all: great ride sound when playing the middle or edge, killer ping ride sound from the bell, and a sweet, controlled crash. It sounds great when played with a brush or "cool rod" as well. Most of my use is soft playing at low-volumes, but this cymbal is capable of being heard under any conditions. I love this thing so much! I fully recommend the 17" or 18" model.
