Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark China Cymbal:

I saw this cymbal on the website when i was looking for a great china to complete my cymbal lineup, i have to say, i found everything i wanted in this china. I tried tons of cymbals, from Zildjian, Sabian, and Paiste. I ended up choosing between this 17" dark, the Z3 20", and the Sabian AAXtreme 19". I picked this one and i am so glad i did. It is my favorite and loudest cymbal, it has such a bright high pitched attack with a clean decay, it can be the punch of a metal breakdown, a nice accent, or just a change up instead of a crash. This is a light cymbal, but it can take abuse from hit after hit without even a scratch. No matter what type of music you play, this will make a great addition to your kit. It is an expensive cymbal, but it will be worth every penny.

Comments about Zildjian K Custom Dark China Cymbal:

i hear alot of people saying these are jazz cymbals. i say no, i play thrash metal and these are the toughest cymbals around. i have the hats, three crashes two rides two chinas and a few splashes. only like two are zildjian a custom. mix em up a bit, they sound simply amazing. this china itself is loud, trashy and is an overall amazing buy. way better than zildjian oriental.
