The best crash cymbals money can buy? No.
The best crash cymbals so little money can buy? Absolutely.
Wuhan cymbals don't presume to challenge the sound quality, variety, or reputations of the fine professional-level cymbals on today's market. But when it comes to being affordable, that's another story.
Generally, "affordable" cymbals are made of less-expensive sheet alloys, using shortcut manufacturing methods and finishing steps in order to keep the cost down. With the resulting cymbals, you pretty much get what you pay for.
Wuhan cymbals are made of high-quality, cast B20 alloy. Handcrafted in China according to two-thousand-year-old traditional methods, this crash cymbal is buffed to a brilliant finish, and stamped with an unobtrusive but attractive logo.

Picked up the 16" on sale for $40. Wasn't expecting much and I had verified that I could return it for refund/credit just in case. But I was instantly amazed at the sound and clarity. Only time will tell how durable it is. Since I don't pound on my pies my hope is that will last for quite awhile. Definitely not in the same class as K's or 2002's, but also not anywhere in the same price range.
The 16 is darker than the 18" Crash/Ride. I wouldn't use it in a recording situation, but for playing for drunk people, they sound great!.
I just recently purchased both the 14" and 16" crash and they are very very good....I would highly recommend this!!
When I first got it, I tried it on my kit...It has the worst sound to it ever. But not only did it sound terrible, but it cracked in 2 months. It might be good for a beginner when all you need is something there to make a cymbal sound.
Don't let the negativity fool you. They are wrong. I once thought These wuhan crashes would've sounded awful because the price and how underrated they were. I've learned my lesson never judge a cymbal by its price :). As corny as i make it sound these cymbals make my day everyday. They are bright and sound perfect. I myself have the 14' and the 16' and they are really good. I have a video of myself playing my own drumset along with the set of wuhan cymbals and I was told from a guy on youtube that crashes sounded really great. And I've told em' they were Wuhans. He also agreed that wuhan are really good cymbals. these cymbals are RAD ! Awesome price. Awesome looks. Perfect sound. buy these bad boys !
For what the price is it is totaly worth it, especially if your just starting. Its a nice cymbal. Ive had it for a while and it still sounds (and looks) amazing. Im 100% satisfied with my purchase.
The previous Wuhan crashes were almost a perfect rock cymbal; low price, good durability, and the sound was a wash with almost no initial ping (not surprising from the splash/trash experts). They pulled those off the market, so a number of us have been waiting to see what came back out... got mine this week, and unfortunately they've tried to "upgrade" to a more traditional-sounding crash, and the results are mediocre. Sitting on my rig next to a Zildjian A Custom, the differences in sound are striking. The Wu doesn't have that cheap brass clang of a "included with kit" Pearl or anything, but the tone is very subdued, the wash is too quiet for rock, and the initial tone is neither crisp nor clear. STILL not bad for the price (neither is a trash-can lid...for the price...) but hardly what I was hoping for based on my love of the previous line.
This is a cymbal specifically for beginners who are only in need of a cymbal-like noise. It has no tone whatsoever, it's essentially a cookie sheet molded into a circle. I regret buying the cymbal and I definitely don't recommend it to anybody who knows what a good cymbal sounds like.
