A new Zildjian K 16" Dark Crash will set you back in the hundreds and this fine cymbal is in mint condition and looks brand new and hardly used. 

We highly doubt any new one will sound as great as THIS ONE!! This K sounds is a thin early 90s Ks. If you're a K fan than you know the ones I'm talking about.

We are happy to report that there are NO, nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this Dark gem. This K is in Mint Condition, with a light patina that has befriended it.  

The more Ks that pass through our hands, the more we come to appreciate the 80s/early 90s ones. They're darker and they just seem to breathe and open up better. And this 16" is no exception.

In general, the newer K crashes are more focused than the Ks from the 80s and early 90s.

With a weight of 1040 grams this Dark Crash plays like a Thin  K. The edges are easily bendable and it is extremely responsive at moderate volumes. The tone is SUPERDARK, warm, and complex. The wash opens up well for a 16". And the spread is fantastic.

THIS is the K TONE that you hope for. DARK, responsive, thin t, warm, very musical. A beautiful sounding Zildjian!!

This Zildjian K 16" Dark Crash is remarkably versatile. Its darker leanings, K wash, and broad dynamic range make it a welcomed addition to any jazz, blues, ballads, soul, or folk setup. And its ability to open up and project nicely for a dark cymbal make it perfect for funk, fusion, country, gospel, hip-hop, and even pop and rock. It can be used as a Dark Fast Crash in these settings.
