  • Here’s an amazing beauty!  I’ve only seen one or two of these before - they were made for Zildjian artists who wanted a K Sizzle Ride! 

  • This is 22 year old 18” K Dark Crash Medium Thin with 6 FACTORY ZILDJIAN RIVETS in the classic Vintage Zildjian configuration.

  • Yes. All intact. This is the SIZZLE you WISH Zildjian made!  This beauty was hand selected for a studio, and that makes sense, because it’s amazing. For real.  Have a listen yourself. 

  • The edges on this K Dark are incredibly thin and bend with ease - unlike most Zildjian K Crashes. This one is very flexible.

  • And it’s very, very dark sounding, compliments of the low profile. 
  • Remarkable straight up Dark Crash with the light after glow of 6 Zildjian factory rivets. 

  • Sounds like it’s right out of 1950s - back when 18” Sizzle Crash Rides were everywhere.  

  • Makes a gorgeous 18” Light Ride with a light touch - smoky and dark but it remains controlled. 

  • Lay Into the edge to ignite explosive Crash accents.  

  • Strong, rounded over bell cuts very well, especially for a thin 18” Sizzle. 

  • Comes to life with the lightest swipe.  Roars when crashed upon with force.  

  • An amazing vintage sounding Dark Crash Sizzle or Light Crash Ride. 

  • Zildjian offers nothing like this Dark K 18” Sizzle. But you can get this one.
