  • Here’s a 40-year-old semi-dark VERY FULL sounding Medium Thin 18”. This beauty harkens from the days of CLASSIC ROCK. 

  • Terrific Vintage Full Crash or Medium Thin Crash Ride vibe on this one. 

  • Anointed with the rare Factory Stamp “MEDIUM”, which at 1420 grams is today’s Medium Thin weight. 

  • No need to spend more money on a big box store Zildjian when you can get an actual, hard-to-find 18” CRASH that’s 40 years old! 

  • Here’s that classic RINGO wash. Big.  Full.  Great for that white noise wash. 

  • 1420 grams puts this beauty right at around a Medium Thin Crash Ride.  
  • Classic golden lathing on the underside. 70s style hammering.  Glorious semi-dark 1970s full-sounding Crash that cuts without clanking, compliments of that 1420 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 is lush, semi-dark, and full.  Not harsh or clanky. 

  • Medium to Medium-Low in pitch. Wonderfully semi-dark, classic 70s Zildjian A tone. 

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

  • Great shape. 

  • Vintage As are always in style.  No need to paw through an ocean of modern Zildjians to find one that kinda-sorta sounds vintage-ish. 
  • Here you are….
