      Holy china!! I could not be more happy with this purchase. I bought the 16" china. It has a low and dark tone and fades fast and yet it has somewhat of a brilliant sound to it. Its everything a china should be: Trashy, and quick. It's great for metal, death metal, accents, and breakdowns. Also has a great bell. It's simple yet colorful and dark yet bright. UNDERSTAND?! Enjoy your new MEINL China!!

                          Bought this product for my son. He has been playing for just over a year and loves Linkin Park and other hard rock bands. This cymbal is one of his favorites and provides a great sound when he is rocking out in the basement.
