The 18" Alpha Rock China cymbal has a bright, clear, full, aggressive sound. Medium-range, fairly clear mix. Very loud and explosive with a hissing shatter. Very strong China cymbal for all musical applications in louder playing styles.
Alpha Cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Since then, the Alpha Series has been highly successful on an international scale. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well-known for their first-class sound and fair prices. In 2006, Paiste presented a completely revamped Alpha, which advanced these trusted qualities and took Alpha cymbals to a new level.
In recent years, Paiste has invested heavily into the perfection of its high-tech processes, seeking to faithfully reproduce the principles of Swiss hand craftsmanship in its modern production facility in Germany. The updated Alpha cymbals are manufactured using this top-notch technology. They are then enhanced using traditional hand hammering. The combination of hi-tech and traditional methods brings about never before realized quality levels in a highly efficient production environment. Alpha cymbals thus fulfill high demands in quality and function while taking into account the financial realities of today's active drummers.
Paiste designed the updated Alpha series specifically with the global demands of today's music in mind. Global music increasingly combines stylistic and cultural backgrounds into new musical forms, requiring cymbals with wider application range. By applying modern design concepts to the individual models including the Alpha Rock China, Paiste has met these requirements convincingly. The assortment offers a wide choice of models and sizes, and covers a wide range of music styles. It allows the drummer an optimal variety of sounds in the cymbal set. Despite all of these improvements, the company is offering the new Alpha cymbals at unchanged retail prices.

I was looking for a short decay and a crisp but load sound. This cymbal's decay is long and load, i think it would work as a china ride mostly. it is very strong and lasting though! i've had it for about 8 months and it has never chipped! although i have broken a lot of my sticks on it, hahaha.
This is a good china. Just good, not great. I was looking for a china that had a short decay, and this doesn't. It would be used best as a crash china or ride china. So if your looking for a short decay, don't buy this. But, it is very powerful and sounds amazing!
