Pure dark tone with an explosive attack. Beautifully articulated sound across the dynamic spectrum. The 18 Medium Thin Dark crash benefits from greater projection thanks to the medium-thin weight. With a larger diameter than the 17 you can expect more volume ride-ability and dark tone. The initial attack is explosive and full-bodied quickly dissipating into a dark and smooth decay. With clear stick definition and a medium weight its also great for light riding. Sweet enough for jazz and loud enough for rock the Zildjian K Medium Thin Dark crash is an ideal versatile option for your kit.
