      Wuhan is unbeatable in the china cymbal arena if you want an explosive attack and rapid decay. One drawback is that every cymbal sounds completely different so you never know what you're getting. One guarantee though, at their extremely affordable price, you can always use an odd sounding wuhan as a great effect! I will only buy wuhans when it comes to chinas and I am going to take a chance on a crash as well.

      Gave my conservative kit just the trashy edge it needed, for when I'm feeling naughty! Sounds like hitting a controlled trash can lid. But that's what we're looking for, right? For the price, it was worth it. It's quite thin so, I installed it with a medium Aquarian cymbal spring to make it last. Recommended!
      A very rough, 'hand-made' look to it. Leaves stick-marks very easily. The inside of the bell is unpolished and looks like raw casting but your cymbal felts should cover that up for the most part.

      Comments about Wuhan China Cymbal:

      I have been playing Wuhan Chinas for 30+ years. Absolutely love them. In those 30 years I have never cracked one, and I play in projects ranging from jazz to prog metal to everything in-between. Now if you are looking for a washy sound, these are not the cymbals for you. I have sizes from 12-20 inch so I can change depending on the job at hand. Hey if they were good enough for Mr. Peart (until he went to Sabian) who am I to argue. Great cymbal of you are looking for a quick, trashy accent.

        Comments about Wuhan China Cymbal:

        After years of looking at China cymbals in music stores, playing with them on other drummer's sets and researching on YouTube, I finally decided to part with some cold, hard cash and get one for myself.

        Normally; I'm a Zildjian user, but after numerous visits to YouTube to see and hear what other drummers had to say as far as comparing Wuhan to Zildjian, Paiste, Agazarian and so forth, there was something about the Wuhan that kept bringing me back, so I took my chances and purchased a Wuhan 18" and let me say for the record, I'm glad I did.

        From my research, I've noticed that folks noted that each Wuhan has it's own distinctive sound and the main complaint was that they have the tendency to crack easily. While I found the remarks about the sound to be true, I do believe that the complaints about cracking come from folks who beat the life out of their cymbals for no reason.

        I jammed with 2 different bands (a Doom/ Sludge Metal and an Alternative band) and this bad boy fit in well with both and mixed with my Zildjian Custom A Fast Crashes perfectly.

        You don't need to hit the 18" with the force of Thor's hammer to get the sound you are looking for. Deep trashy sound that we all look for in a China at a price that comes in WAY lower than what the big boys can offer. My only complaint is that I waited so long to purchase one.

          I can't imagine why anyone looking for a trashy China would use anything else. This is EXACTLY what a china is supposed to sound like and the given the price it should be a no brainer. Do not spend big money for fancy "name brand" chinas. This is all you need.

                    I have owned three wuhan chinas in different sizes. For the price, and being B20, these are great. Very explosive in the larger sizes, a bit dull in the smaller sizes when played softly. I'm under the impression they're all the same thickness, no matter the size.
                    At 20 something doll hairs for a 12 inch accent cymbal, NEW, it's a good deal. It's not high end, but it's as close as you can get for under 100 smackers.
                    I like my chinas very trashy and less bright and clean like a Zildjian A for example. Wuhan chinas fit the bill, and are really reasonably priced. Just throw one on your next order and try it out.

                        If you're looking for a light weight cymbal with GREAT (and I do mean GREAT) tone then Wuhan is the way to go. I use them primarily for recording and they do the job just as good (if not better) than some of the more "expensive" cymbal lines. They appear to be more of a light weight cymbal so I would not recommend them for any hard hitters. So if you're into small venues or recording save yourself some money and check into what Wuhan has to offer. You'll be pleasantly surprised and you can thank me later! :)
