An excellent and affordable step-up from a beginners brass cymbal. The Zildjian I Series 16 Crash Cymbal features a B8 bronze construction offering a bright tone with exceptional durability and versatility. This medium-thin weight 16 crash cymbal produces a bright and fast sound that is ideal for any musical style. The 16 diameter is a must-have for any drummer due to their versatile size. They are small enough to be fast and bright but big enough to project and stand out. The small-bore hammering and lathed finish provide a mature wash and glassy responses that help the cymbal stand out in any mix.
