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.

This cymbal has an enormous sound. It cuts through everything when playing live, and its really good for breakdowns. The quality is horrible though. I literally had it for a few months and it got a crack in it. Gradually that crack became bigger, and bigger, then chunks started to fly off off it until it sounded like hitting some sheet metal. You're better off buying one of the cheap wuhan china's than this,(which sound just as good) unless your a Zildjian fanboy. The biggest flaw in my opinion is the price, for the quality of the product, the price is ridiculous.

Comments about Zildjian Oriental China 'Trash' Cymbal:

Sounds incredible. This cymbal is perfect for marching bands and drum corps. I would not recommend this for heavy hitters, or people who use their china cymbals a lot. I used to be in a metalcore band, and this china started breaking in 3 months. After using it for 6 months, it was too broken to use. I did not play with poor technique and I used cymbal springs. It's perfect for accents, but it's not durable enouigh for frequent use (unless you have the money to get a new china twice a year).

    Comments about Zildjian Oriental China 'Trash' Cymbal:

    This cymbal sounds amazing. Sounds just like a china you would hear in a metal album. Same cymbal Matt Griener of August Burns Red uses, and so do many other drummers. Decay is nice and fast. Perfect for breakdowns. Really cuts through the rest of the band. I love playing live shows with this cymbal. Everyone compliments its sound.

    Comments about Zildjian Oriental China 'Trash' Cymbal:

    I got this cymbal (the 16" model) as my first china because I wanted to play heavy metal and was astounded by its sound in my local percussion shop. The sound is amazing- Very bright but a hint of dark, extremely trashy, extremely short sustain, and cuts through ANYTHING. Yes the sound was amazing, but I don't think this china is meant for heavy use like breakdowns every song or even for very hard hitters. After about 8 months of semi-frequent use, it has developed a small crack parallel to the turned edge, right where it meets the body of the cymbal. Fortunately, the sound is still alight, but now I have to be very careful with it, using it for accents only and no more breakdowns. The crack has been slowly growing and leaves this horrible sizzle if you play the china by itself. Overall this is a near perfect sounding china, but its just not durable for heavy hitters/music. And at this price point this is quite disappointing. I'd probably buy the exact model again and use it for only accents, and get a cheap replaceable china like a Wuhan for breakdowns and such. So it's a great cymbal, just be nice to it :)

    Comments about Zildjian Oriental China 'Trash' Cymbal:

    This was my first china cymbal, I have had the 16" model for about 8 months now and the sound is amazing. It's bright but just a hint of dark, extremely trashy, short sustain, imagine the perfect breakdown cymbal that is also perfect for a bright, crisp accent. My only gripe with this cymbal is that at such a high price point, it is not durable for heavy use. Mine developed a crack in the brim, which fortunately doesn't render the cymbal unusable or take away too much sound, but we all know once a cymbal cracks its the beginning of the end. I would buy this again, but refrain from using it heavily as I don't think it's intended as a workhorse cymbal. I imagine if I only used it for accents it would last years or longer

        The 18" is my second china. I am a music gear snob and only play Zildjian cymbals. But hey, they sound the best to me. This one is no exception, took me a little while to get used to it but it accents snare hits so well. glad I own it

        Best china ever. I really don't think there is any other china that sounds better. I tried out every single one at my local music shop, and I picked this one for a reason. Zildjian has been around for several hundred years, so they've established a good name and reputation for themselves. This cymbal just stuck out to me, soundwise and lookwise. I got it, and it's now on every kit I play. This cymbal is my baby. I would recommend making it yours too.

        By James Duford

        from Brownstown, MI

        Comments about Zildjian Oriental China 'Trash' Cymbal:

        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

        Comments about Zildjian Oriental China 'Trash' Cymbal:

        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.
