      After hearing lots of tracks featuring this cymbal and watching some videos on YouTube, it was a matter of time for me to buy it. I couldn't be more happy now, I can assure this is among the best cymbals I own. Highly recommended!

        Comments about Sabian AA Holy China Brilliant:

        When it comes to Chinas, I've always been very old school and Wuhan centric. How could a Swiss, German or Turkish style cymbal process possibly create a better China-boy than the Chinese? You just can't beat that Chinese trash sound and the Wuhan price point swamps the competition, but .... Chad Smith's Signature Sabian has made a believer of me. The Holy China is simply one-of-a-kind awesome. I'll never give up my Wuhans, however, the Holy China had added a new demission to my arsenal and a new color to my sound pallet. Trashy and bright (unlike the darker Wuhans), this noise-maker provides fast biting accents that cut through anything, substantial volume with quick decay and white-noise wash like noting else. It's a specialty cymbal to be sure - use sparingly - but, when it sings, it screams WAKE-UP, the apocalypse is upon us. If I could deploy only a single China, this would be the one, but it blends well with my Wuhans and complements my entire rig blending especially well with my Sabian Ozones and K Zildjians.

          Comments about Sabian AA Holy China Brilliant:

          This 21" china is SUPER loud. It has such quick response, not overly trashy, very bright and focused. I like that I can't hear it ringing minutes later, to me cymbals that go to long interfere with the other effects. You hit it...beat it to death...it sings...and it's out. I played about 10 Chinas from all different companies and this was what I landed on. I have the Sabian AAX series Xplosion crashes, a few Darks, and the Freq crash. This pairs very well with them.

          Comments about Sabian AA Holy China Brilliant:

          I have the Vault Edition of this China, but its basically the same china. At first response, the tone was quick, straight to the point compared to an Zildjian A Custom china, which is more bold and musical. Using this in a recording situation will cut thru the mix and will be heard. Live its almost piercing but adds to the live spectrum of the music.
