No two cymbals are exactly alike, and when it comes to choosing the right ones to add to your percussion setup, there's more to think about than just the shape, style and material: there's also weight, and if you're looking for the loudest, hardest-hitting and most sustain-rich cymbals around, heavy is the way to go. So it's no wonder that heavy China cymbals are popular: with the gong-like character of a China cymbal, that extra power goes a long way! These might be some of the most dramatic cymbals you'll ever put on a stand, so if you're ready to make your signature drumming style stand out, you've come to the right place.
There are a few kinds of heavy China cymbals to choose from, and you can usually tell the difference by the bell shape (and the finish, of course, just like any other cymbal). A conical or square bell, like what you'll find on the Paiste Rude China, can be your ticket to an aggressive and powerful crash well-suited to heavy metal and hard rock. On the other hand, if you'd like a cymbal that's a little more crisp and potentially even louder, the Meinl Mb20 Rock China Cymbal could be the way to go. No two drummers are exactly the same, so it's completely up to you to find the best fit for your personal style.
If that style calls for high volume and distinctive tone that resonates right down to the floorboards, then heavy China cymbals are great candidates for your next kit upgrade. Whether you're taking things up a notch by replacing a lighter China, or maybe experimenting with this family of cymbals for the first time, it's all good - once you've heard one of these babies in action, you'll probably get a rush of inspiration for how to put it to work in your percussion set.
