- 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.
