  • Here’s a 60-year-old semi-dark Complex sounding RINGO style 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 ONLY 1293 grams. 

  • And PLAYS like a true Paper Thin.  Thinner edges with that paper-thin complexity. Fairly steep profile on this one gives it that full RINGO thing. Fairly complex for an 18”. 

  • 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 60 years old. 

  • Here’s that classic 1960s A tone - but in a Paper Thin.  

  • Weighs ONLY 1293 grams and opens up very quickly with a broad spread.  

  • Glorious semi-dark and complex 1960s Crash that remains responsive compliments of that 1293 gram weight! 
  • 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 patina. Light use.

  • Great shape. No issues. Beautiful swirled style craftsmanship.  

  • Vintage As are always in style, and this 1960s 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!
