A. Zildjian flat was the first, quite heavy
I hear the 18" size is more rare....?
Would love to hear this one! Maybe a custom order? I recall at least catalog that didn't list a thin/light flat ride. The flat was advertised along with the mini-bell ride as a tight "ping" sound with minimal wash. The few ones I got to try were all on the heavy side.They were available in different weight classes, probably the full range of weight classes. The idea that they were all heavy is based on overgeneralizing from an inadequate sample. For example the 20" diameter range from
20" 1875g Ex Thin
