  • And that it is!!! Only 1277 grams. Pretty damn clean for 40 years old! 
  • Here’s a beautiful fairly complex-sounding 1970s Zildjian THIN 18”. And that’s not that easy to find these days - most thinner Zildjians succumbed at the end of a 2B stick inside the Rainbow Room in 1987.  

  • This one is wonderfully THIN 1277 grams. And PLAYS like a THIN to even PAPER THIN CRASH. 

  • Slightly bendable 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 is that classic 1970s A tone - and it’s a true Thin Crash. 

  • Weighs ONLY 1277 grams and sounds exactly like it was plucked out of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road or an Ohio Players record. 

  • Glorious semi-dark and complex 1970s Crash that remains responsive compliments of that 1277 gram weight but is FULL when you really lay into it. 
  • 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.  

  • It’s thin but it has that 1970s complex cut! complex cut! 

  • Magnificent condition for a nearly half-century-old Zildjian. Clean. Light use.

  • Great shape. Hard to find thinner weight. 

  • Factory stamped! 

  • Vintage As are always in style, and this 1970s 18” 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!
