Its unique shape makes both the bell and downward turned china edge accessible at once. For unique applications and percussive settings.

  • Overall a great and VERY powerful cymbal!

    As reviewed by Peter T. on 6/2/2011

    Got it as a gift about 4 months ago for xmas. Playing in the metal genre, i must say that it is a great cymbal. However, keep in mind that it isnt a "trashy" cymbal. If your looking for the classic china sound, dont get this one. This cymbal has a more "gong-like" sound. Overall, it is a great cymbal. VERY LOUD too! Recomended for rock, metal and maybe even hip-hop.

  • A beast of a China.

    As reviewed by Mike on 4/22/2011

    Inferno of Behemoth got it so I had to get it. I picked up the 20" version and am using it with my 18" wuhan and 16" Sabian hhx-treme china. This one is used as my main and it has enough power to cut through any metal guitarist's rig. It's loud and chaotic but not overpowering. The novo china fits in my setup better and looks way cooler than your normal china cymbal. All in all, it's a perfect main china for any extreme metal drummer. Don't worry about cracking this thing because IT IS THICK!!
