When you want to get a sense for what a cymbal is like, one of the first places to look is the name. Case in point: this lineup of medium-thin China cymbals. When you think "China" and "cymbal," one of the first images that pops into your head is probably a gong, and that gives you an idea of what to expect from these cymbals. They sound kind of like miniature gongs, but in terms of playability, they're much closer to other cymbals around the same size. And since this section is focused on the medium-thin weights, you can also expect an impressive level of nimbleness and playability that makes these little China cymbals well-suited to just about any playing style.
For those who like to follow in the footsteps of legends, maybe the best medium-thin China cymbals to check out first would be some of the signature models? For example, take a look at the Sabian Neil Peart Paragon China, replete with HHX hammering to deliver that traditional aesthetic and tone. Or maybe you'd prefer a brighter version? That comes in the form of the Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Chinese Brilliant. Of course, there are plenty of non-signature options to choose from as well, including the Istanbul Mehmet El Negro China, the Meinl Byzance Extra Dry China Cymbal and the ultra-high-end Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials China.
No matter which cymbal looks like the best one for your setup, anything you find in this section is a good choice. After all, that's one of the best things about percussion - everything in your kit is up to you to customize to your heart's content. When that means getting a cymbal that's restrained enough to use in the most demanding recording studio and small-stage applications while still having a bit of weight to it, medium-thin China cymbals are some worthy candidates for adding to your collection.
