Product Description

Zildjian K 16 Inch Dark Crash Cymbal: Dark, warm, low-pitched crash. Fast decay. Complex, full-bodied. Very musical.

Dark Warm + Expressive
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.

Can't get enough of this thing. Opens up to the lightest hit and washes out beautifully. Works in any musical situation.

Don't Let The "Dark" Designation Deter You!
What is your opinion of this product?
My review is of the 16"med-thin & 18"thin Dark crashes. Easy to describe the sound of these crashes - take the brilliant hi frequencies of the new "A" series, add in some low and mid-low frequencies, and you have the Dark crashes. Hi frequencies abound, and the additional lows give the cymbals a very "round" sound. VERY pleasing from the drum throne, but I doubt that an audience would be able to distinguish them from the new "A" series. Highly recommended, but don't expect the kind of "dark" sound you would get from an Istanbul, for instance.

Dark Power!!
Yes, very strong for a thin model. Not a perfect finish some spots in model but I didn't complain because once I heard the sound I was in love.
Dark, powerful, Musical, many different tones throughout cymbal. Bell is nice but not overwhelming. Can be played loud or soft. Great for Recording. Warm wash and will give you chills every time.
Your general opinion of this product.
Yes, the 19" is pricey in the 300 range but worth every penny. Can be used as a ride so it really kills two birds for me. Buy this Crash!
Slight imperfections but quite beautiful otherwise.
