Zildjian K 16" Dark Medium Thin Crash Cymbal
Zildjian's 16" K Dark Crash Medium Thin is a cymbal with many names, which is important to note because there are many other cymbals that are very similar. It's important to note that this is a "K" cymbal and not a "K custom" cymbal as the two lines are made from a different combination of metals and therefore sound different from one another; I find some "K custom" cymbals to be more "pingy" than "K" cymbals. The K Dark Crash Medium Thin is a darker cymbal but not too dark, with a long sustain and low pitch. It also has a very mature sound that works really well in the jazz genre to add some depth to your sound.
While the jazz genre doesn’t generally require a lot of heavy hitting, this cymbal is still very durable and can be played intensively. I love using this cymbal in combination with brighter cymbals for a great one-two punch. While this pick sounds especially good for jazz music, it can be useful for rock music. It has a traditional finish that I think looks great when surrounded by a jazz drum set.
