  • Here’s a 40-year-old semi-dark sounding PAPER THIN 18”. And that’s not that easy to find these days - most thinner Zildjians succumbed at the end of a 2B stick outside Altoona, PA in 1987.  

  • This one is remarkably THIN 1280 grams. And PLAYS like a Paper Thin. 

  • RAZOR THIN edges with that paper-thin complexity. 

  • No need to spend more money on a big box store Zildjian when you can get an actual, hard-to-find TRULY THIN 18” CRASH that’s 40 years old! 

  • Here’s that classic 1970s A tone - but in a Paper Thin. 

  • Weighs ONLY 1280 grams and sounds exactly like it was plucked out of a Fleetwood Mac album. 

  • Glorious semi-dark and complex 1970s Crash that remains responsive compliments of that light weight and thin edges. 
  • The tone we’ve heard for generations of rock, pop, and soul. 

  • Of course, if you have a light touch, you can easily use this 18” as a small Light Ride or a swelling Crash Ride. When you crash ride on it, it unleashes a gorgeous torrent of white noise that has a broad spread.  

  • Magnificent condition for a half-century-old Zildjian. Nice golden brown patina. Light use.

  • Great shape. 

  • Vintage As are always in style, and this 1970s 18” Paper Thin Crash is exceptionally hard to find these days. 
  • No need to paw through an ocean of modern Zildjians to find one that kinda-sorta sounds vintage-ish.   

  • The REAL DEAL right here! Only 1280 grams.
