A Crash From the Past, the New Zildjian K Series Paper Thin Crash Cymbals

The new K Paper Thin Crashes are a classic example of Zildjian’s greatest strengths – giving nods to the most resonating moments of its 400-year history, leading the charge in cymbal innovation, and rewarding the trust of drummers worldwide with cymbals that deliver and exceed the demands of players in the modern era.


  • Thinnest crashes in the K Family
  • Explosive, dark crash sound with quick decay
  • Buttery under-stick feel
  • Cymbal flexibility unleashes a shimmering effect and max response
  • Three-step hammering process for more nuanced playing
  • Largest Paper Thin Zildjian cymbals ever
  • Available in sizes 18-inches thru 22-inches


Zildjian began offering Paper Thin cymbals as early as the 1950s.  After an exhaustive review of over 70 years in cymbal trends for musical needs that still exist today, the result is a resounding answer to years of customers demanding the return of this weight class.  Thanks to new advancements by Zildjian’s R&D team, this new assortment joins the iconic K Family with 18-inch, 19-inch, 20-inch, 21-inch, and 22-inch crash offerings that blend the popular Paper Thin qualities with the characteristics unique to larger cymbal sizes. As strong as they are light, K Paper Thin cymbals offer an explosive dark crash with a quick decay and a buttery under-stick feel.  A key feature is a reimagined three-step hammering process which unlocks flexibility and sonic nuances that contribute to the unique signature of these crashes.  The very thin profiles allow extra shimmer when crashed, providing a low-end resonance not found anywhere else in the K Family.
