Zildjian K Paper Thin Crashes: The New Sound of Jazz, Fusion, Pop, Rock and More

Zildjian has launched a new series within K Family, namely K Paper Thin Crashes. These cymbals are inspired by the paper-thin cymbals that Zildjian began offering as early as the 1950s. After a careful review of over 70 years of cymbal trends for musical needs that still exist today, Zildjian has revived this weight class that many drummers have been asking for.

K Paper Thin Crashes are available in sizes 18", 19", 20", 21" and 22", and combine the popular paper-thin properties with the characteristics that are unique to larger cymbals. These cymbals are as strong as they are light, and offer an explosive dark crash sound with short decay, and a smooth feel under the stick. A key factor is a reformed three-step hammering technique that unlocks flexibility and sonic nuances that contribute to the unique signature of these cymbals. The very thin profiles provide extra shimmer when crashed, and provide a low-frequency resonance that is not found anywhere else in K Family.

If you want a crash sound that stands out from the crowd, and that is perfect for jazz, fusion, pop, rock or other music where you want dynamics, expression and personality, then K Paper Thin Crashes are for you. Try them today! You won’t regret it. You can buy them at Trumslagaren. If you want to hear how they sound, you can check out these video clips:
