The Zildjian 20” K Cluster Crash Cymbal delivers dirty, dark, trashy tone thanks to its cluster hammer marks. Offering the signature warm, vibrant, expression of the Zildjian K series, this crash produces a twist of rawness to provide a sound outside the norm. With a thin weight for fast attack and an unlathed bell for great tonal spread, this is a crash like no other.

Cluster Hammered Crash

Introduced at NAMM 2019 and following the popularity and award-winning success of the Zildjian K Sweet Crashes, the K Cluster series was designed to provide diverse drummers with a sound different to the norm.

The 20” K Cluster crash features a paper-thin weight to deliver a fast blast of attacking tone and a cluster hammering technique to produce a trashy aspect to its sound.

The cymbal surface features various small clusters of deep hammer marks which serve to deliver a trashy edge to the sound without the need for slots or holes.

Delivering a short, sharp, trashy burst of dark tone, the Zildjian K Cluster Crashes were made for those who want something a little different.

Zildjian 20” K Cluster Crash Cymbal Key Features:

  • Extra Thin Weight
  • Traditional K Hammering with Additional Cluster Marks
  • Unlathed Bell
  • Dark, Funky, Trashy Tone
  • Fast Attack
  • Short Sustain
  • Available in Various Sizes

Fast Attack, Short Sustain

The K Cluster crash takes the characteristics of a standard K crash cymbal and adds to it a trashy, dirty raw edge.

The extra thin weight of the 20” K Cluster crash allows it to open up extremely quickly to produce a standard quick crash response for a fast burst of attacking sound.

The K crash also features a short sustain to ensure a compact, neat and tidy overall sound for short, sharp blasts of accenting tone.

The result is a cymbal that springs into action with the slightest touch then fades neatly to deliver a punch of instant attack and a compact sound with impact.

Cluster Hammering

The unique feature of the K Cluster Crashes is the combination of traditional K hammering, used across the Zildjian K cymbal range, and the added clusters of deeper hammering marks.

Providing this cymbal with its signature sound, the small hammered clusters which are dotted around the cymbal surface serve to inject a “dirty” character to the tone.

Offering a unique twist on the standard crash cymbal response, the hammering technique creates a crash sound with a dark, trashy nature.

As standard many cymbals utilise holes and slots to achieve a trashy tone which also results in the addition of a white-noise characteristic to the sound.

With the K Cluster Crash, Zildjian have utilised the cluster hammering to create a trashy crash sound without the electronic white noise tone.

Dirty and Dark

Slotting neatly into the Zildjian K Series, this 20” crash cymbal is dark yet remains well suited to a wide range of musical styles.

Offering the deep, warm, expressive sound synonymous with the Zildjian K range, this Cluster crash adapts the tone slightly to deliver a new sound filled with dark, funky, trashiness.

Providing the ideal way to add a twist to your standard cymbal sound, the Zildjian K 20” Cluster crash offers a dark, low pitch of trashy rawness for an overall dirty sound filled with character.

Unlathed Bell

As with the Zildjian K Sweet Crashes, the K Clusters feature an unlathed bell which serves to deliver a greater tonal spread.

The unlathed bell design also provides additional frequencies to the crash sound for a much fuller sound response filled with added impact.

The combination of the hammering pattern and the unlathed bell means the 20” K Cluster Crash is filled with trashy wash yet always remains controlled to provide a short, sharp flash of accenting tone.

Select Your Size

Available in sizes 16”, 18” and 20”, the Zildjian K Cluster Crash series has a sound option to meet your requirements.

The largest of the range, the 20” crash offers the lowest pitch to provide a deeper dark edge to the trashy sound.

As the diameter of the crash reduces the pitch increases with the smaller 16” crash offering a higher variation of the dark, trashy sound.

Combining the Cluster Crashes also works really well to deliver a range of complementary tone within your cymbal set up.


The Zildjian K Cluster Crashes take the standard darkness of the Zildjian K range and add a touch of dirtiness to it to provide drummers with something a little different.

The extra thin weight allows the 20” crash to open up quickly for fast accents while the short sustain means the cluster crash always produces a neat blast of accenting tone.

Delivering short, sharp flashes of musical punctuation this is the ideal crash to inject some alternative tone into your set up.

Combining the natural characteristics of a crash cymbal with the raw trashy tone of an effects cymbal, the 20” K Cluster Crash is the perfect option for drummers who want to stand out from the crowd.
