  • Sabian AAX Chinese 18"

    Sabian AAX Chinese 18" - "Ridiculously Cutting Sound!"


    The Good: - Brilliant finish allows it to cut through every kind of cymbal and drum I've ever heard. - Can be crashed for a LOUD sound, or tapped lightly for a nice washy jazz china/ride. - Very piercing - Good for a live setting when you need to be…

  • Sabian HHX Chinese 18"

    Sabian HHX Chinese 18" - moosers's review


    The Sabian HHX China 18" is a higher end china cymbal for use in your drum kit. I wouldn't say that china cymbals are exactly essential cymbals to have in your drum kit like crash, ride, and hi hats are, but it's another color to consider having. I…

  • Paiste 2002 Thin China 16''

    Paiste 2002 Thin China 16'' - moosers's review


    The Paiste 2002 16” Thin China is a colorful cymbal that is a great addition to anyone’s drum set. I’m not a drummer myself, but have played extensively with a drummer who has one of these and who uses it all the time. I’ve heard it used across the…

  • Zildjian K Custom Hybrid China 19"

    Zildjian K Custom Hybrid China 19" - sanjuro's review


    The K Custom 19" Hybrid China is one of the most interesting cymbals I have played, both in appearance and sound.  I have a specific taste in China cymbals, and this passes my tests.  I first encountered these hybrid cymbals a few years ago at a Zild…

  • Paiste 2002 China 18''

    Paiste 2002 China 18'' - sanjuro's review


    As much as I love the Paiste 2002 line, I am not a big fan of their China cymbals.  These have the other admirable 2002 qualities such as durability or uniqueness. However, as chinas they don't sound great.  The alloy sounds similar to that of the Wu…

  • Sabian Paragon Chinese 19"

    Sabian Paragon Chinese 19" - sanjuro's review


    The 19'' Sabian Paragon China cymbal is without a doubt my favorite china cymbal ever.  It is reasonably affordable and comes from an impressive Niel Peart line of Paragons.  It looks different than many other chinas, with such a deep groove turning …

  • Sabian AA Metal X Hats 14"

    Sabian AA Metal X Hats 14" - moosers's review


    The Sabian AA China 18'' is a unique sounding cymbal brought to you by the fine makers of cymbals over at Sabian, one of the world's leaders in cymbal making.  For those of you who don't know exactly what a china cymbal sounds like, I would definitel…

  • Sabian AA Metal X China 18"

    Sabian AA Metal X China 18" - moosers's review


    I've been using the Sabian AA Bright Crash cymbal for about two years for recording and while it is a good sounding crash cymbal, I have used better ones that I would use over this one any day. The cymbal is 16" around and has a nice bright soun…

  • Zildjian Avedis China High 18'

    Zildjian Avedis China High 18' - Audiofanzine FR's review


    (Originally written by kokidrum/translated from Audiofanzine FR) I've been using it for about 2 years. Very good china cymbal because of its size and it's higher pitch than china lows. What I like the least? That I've only had the chance to play i…

  • Zildjian A China High 20"

    Zildjian A China High 20" - BGugino's review


    Now I’ve never owned one of the Zildjian China Boy Highs, but I’ve definitely played on one countless times at my private drum lesson teacher’s house. He’s had this cymbal since I met him 3 years ago, and we both agree that this is one of the best Ch…
