Comments about Paiste Signature Thin China Cymbal:

I buy the 16" and is perfect! very explosive, versatile, full and it have a weird bright//dark sound but is really beauty, it have a quick sustain and the "Well suited for softer volume" is wrong, with mics is perfect for ALL kinds of music, it worth every penny!

Quality Cymbal

Comments about Paiste Signature Thin China Cymbal:

Bought the 18in. This cymbal is loud! I'd say has a moderate sustain, and is semi-dark. This china sounds better (in my opinion) used basically how you'd use a crash. I think it sounds better as a one hit accent than used as a main cymbal for say a breakdown. I dont think it is washy/trashy enough for that. Great alternative for a crash, adds a great dynamic to any kit.
