The Perfect Metal China Cymbal

As a metal drummer influenced heavily by such drummers as Lars Ulrich, Mike Portnoy and even The Rev as of late, I've always been a big fan of the power, raw sound and sheer brutality of a good china cymbal. A china is definitely a flavor to a set that I think every metal drummer should have. But, the trouble is finding a china cymbal with enough cut, brutality, and even musicality to fit the heavy music around you. Well, I was at my local Guitar Center looking for a new china, when, on an impulse, I tried out the 18" Oriental China. I could not believe how quick and brutal the sound was. It was so unbelievably unique and tasteful that I fell in love with it immediately. A few months later, I began to want more sounds to my set (like every other superflous set-loving prog drummer) and tried out the 16" Oriental. Again, I was more than amazed. This one had even MORE brutality, cut and sheer VOLUME than the 18". I was so pleased with the 16 and 18" Orientals that I also purchased the 12" which had an amazingly tasty, almost ping-like bite to it that I absolutely adored. After playing these three chinas, I can honestly say that I will never need to search for another type of china cymbal ever again.

i've been through two of these chinas:an 16" and 18". both of which i had for about 5-7 months before they broke. the sound is very worth the money but if you play hard, i would recomend getting the replacement insurance thing. other than that it's a very good china.

It was nice

By Skyler Kensinger

from Canton, IL

I recently bought this product, barely played it and it started cracking!!!! Hopefully a defect in the process of being made. It sounded great until it broke. NOT DURABLE IN MY EYES!!!!!

Perfect

By James Duford

from Brownstown, MI

If anyone is looking for the perfect rock or metal china then look no further. This cymbal sounds exactly like every China you've heard in a heavy song. It is fast and bright while still retaining the "trashy" sound. I chose this specific cymbal after checking out Zildjian's website, where they have sound bites of each cymbal and I would highly suggest you give it a listen to see if it is actually what you're looking for.

Best China I've ever heard/played!

By Troy Edlin

from Louisville, KY

Just by the nature of what a China cymbal is, it's usually harsh, above the mix and in your face. The 14" Zildjian Oriental Trash, however, has a nice wash and a quick decay that rests in the mix. It has a clean tone and a beautiful sound. This is easily the best China cymbal I've ever heard/played.

Not Durable

By Paul Pomerleau

from White Lake Michigan

I bought the 12 inch china and 8 months after I bought it, it cracked. I wouldn't recommend hard hitters to buy this.

Great sound BUT broke...

By Ben Rodems

from Buffalo New York

Bought this china and it sounded great however it broke within like 3 weeks of playing it. After playing one show with it the china had a huge crack in it. I would not recommend this for players of heavier music...

Get the Pro Coverage if you buy the 12"!

By Michael Priest

from Conway, Arkansas

As far as sound is concerned, I LOVE IT! The 12" is brutal enough for breakdowns and light enough for accents. I believe that the sound of this cymbal is diverse enough to be applied to most genres of music. Unfortunately, after a year, my 12" has developed a crack in the bend of the cymbal. I was smart enough to buy the Pro Coverage, so it's all good. I wouldn't even consider buying this cymbal without the Pro Coverage. IT WILL BREAK EVENTUALLY! So make sure you're taking care of your investment buy getting that Pro Coverage.

Awesome China

By Mordecai

from Perris, ca

I play a lot of hardcore / southern-core music, and this china definately gives me the sound I am looking for. It has a perfect tone and ring to it. If you're looking to play any type of hardcore music, I definatley recommend this china. The price isn't that bad either.
