  • Here’s a 60 year old wonderfully dark sounding, Hand Hammered 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.  

  • 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 50 FROM THE EARLY 1960s. 

  • Here’s that classic RINGO wash.  

  • A True THIN CRASH that weighs ONLY 1309 grams and sounds exactly like it was plucked out of a Beatles recording. 
  • Beautiful early 60s Hand Hammering on the underside that gives it a bit more complexity and fullness than most.  

  • It has a robust 1960s wall of crash ride when you lay into it. 

  • This is 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 is lush, semi-dark, and full. 

  • Medium-low in pitch. Wonderfully dark, classic 60s Zildjian A tone. 

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

  • Vintage As are always in style, and this Early 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.  

  • Just get this. It’s a thin one too!!
