  • Best China Around For Metal

    As reviewed by Mike Giorla on 7/4/2009

    This Chin Is the Best i have ever played. But it sounds good only for matel and rock and any style like that. I recommend getting this china in the 21 because it has the darkest and loudest sound out of them all but thats my opion. I love paiste and their cymbals their the best aound..

  • AWESOME!!!

    As reviewed by Check_out_my_band_Seeking_Zero on 2/6/2010

    So i was looking for a small, short decay, kinda high pitched, nice bite china.. So i ordered the 14 2002 thin china.. but apparently they discontinued it.. So while looking i found this 15 inch.. i completely love it.. it sounds awesome by its self but when mixed in with your kit.. its ten times better.. the only thing about it is that its medium volume then again i have a 19 inch crash and a really loud 18 inch china so they kinda drown it out a little bit but you can still hear it.. i recommend you go buy it right now..
