  • Heres an iconic tone: the Earlier Zildjian K CUSTOM Ride in the famous Steve GADD 18” size. Indeed! This was the inspiration behind the STEVE GADD Zildjian K Custom 18” SESSION RIDE.

  • 1992 grams. Very pronounced stick attack and articulation with that famous unlathed, unhammered penetrating bell.

  • This hard-to-find 18” is more controlled, defined, and refined than its larger brothers but it still has that famous bell.

  • And this particular one is lower pitched and much darker for being the 18”. It’s darker than even some of the 20s”.

  • It has enough weight to penetrate a mix but perfectly fits the bill when you need a smaller Ride or Left Side Ride that remains controlled.  It still has that famous semi-dry K Custom attack that put the entire series on the map 40 years ago. Playable. Collectible.

  • This is the GADD model before there was a GADD model.
