This cymbal has drilled holes that makes this china to have quick decay it doesn't choke the sound but it is very loud and aggressive thank you Chad Smith.
This cymbal is so loud and trashy! i had it set up next to a 19" and it is just as trashy just a little bit brighter. Great buy!
I got this about a month ago because my local GC was out of the 19" Vault holy china, but now I'm glad I got this. Obviously the first thing I noticed about both this and the Vault was the bell, which gives this great diversity in being a china you can just ride on. The next thing I notice was that this cymbal is LOUD. It has a really sharp with a quick response and pretty short sustain, so the AA Holy is perfect for accents.
I was looking for a china cymbal that has the sound of a real china, not like the ones that are out now but something not normal unlike other china cymbals. I formally was a fan of Zildjian chinese cymbals starting from ZXT,Avedis Zildjian China Low, and Oriental China Trash. None of this cymbal product lines gave me the sound that I was looking for until last years new Sabian products which was the Holy China by Chad Smith. I recently tried out the 19"inch version which was nice but I wanted something a little smaller but the same profile. I just purchase the 17" inch and what can I say. It's awesome! I like the unqiue design of the cymbal kinda looks like the ozone crashes with the holes drill into them very unique, making it more louder and trasher with dirty bite. Very aggressive response very fast,and cutting. This is one of the best china cymbals i've ever played in my life. And thanks to Chad Smith my prayers have been answered.
I purchased this at the Guitar Center in Little Rock, and I have to say that this may be the perfect china. If you thought the 19" version was just a bit TOO much, and the 21" was perhaps too "gong-y" then the 17" is for you. It has the right amount of trashy high end that bites hard but quickly gets out of the way. If you're looking for subtlety, this ain't it. And thank goodness for that.
