Out of stock



The Zildjian ILH16C 16″ crash is a must-have for any setup because it is such a versatile size — small enough to be fast and bright, but big enough to project and be heard.

Zildjian’s I Family of cymbals beckons drummers to explore new Zildjian sizes and designs without breaking the bank. The 16″ Zildjian I Crash gives you high output and expression thanks to its thin-weight B8 bronze construction. Small-bore hammering across the entire face of the cymbal, as well as a fully lathed playing surface, lends the 16″ Zildjian I Crash a mature wash and glassy response that can really stand out in a mix without overtaking it. A medium-sheen, traditional finish gives this cymbal a look that will be right at home among the rest of your Zildjian collection.

Zildjian I Series: an overview
Zildjian’s intrepid I Series cymbals are thinly crafted from bold, cutting B8 bronze and treated to extensive small, round hammering to unlock the rich musical character within. Fully lathed surfaces give each cymbal in the line a glassy response, while thin weights and slim profiles provide maturity and expression that can normally be lacking in this price range. If you’re a drummer who’s looking to round out a cymbal collection or branch out into trash crashes and mastersound hi-hats, the Zildjian I Family of cymbals comes highly recommended by drummers.

Inspiration at every turn
The “I” in “I Series” comes from ilham, the Turkish word for inspiration. We feel this is a fitting name, not only for the sonic variety to be found in this cymbal series, but also for the value it offers in its price point.
