  • That’s not a typo!

  • 1124 grams! On an 18”. 

  • This is one of the THINNEST Vintage 18s” you will find.  
  • 40-year-old 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 the Rainbow Room in 1987.  

  • This one is remarkably THIN 1124 grams. And PLAYS like a true Paper Thin. Easily bendable edges with that paper-thin complexity. 

  • No need to settle for a big box store stock photo guess 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 1124 grams and sounds exactly like it was plucked out of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road or a Gorden Lightfoot album.

  • Glorious semi-dark and complex 1970s Crash that remains responsive.  

  • Very responsive. 
  • 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 nearly half-century-old Zildjian. Nice 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! And it can take years to find one this thin - I know because I just did it.
