      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.

          Just got this piece and I am very glad I did. I will not be using it by its lonesome, but I WILL be using it a lot on a double hit. It works as a FANTASTIC tie-together sound with my other Cymbals. Accent, accent, accent....makes a difference.

          Comments about Wuhan China Cymbal:

          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! :)

              Comments about Wuhan China Cymbal:

              In my opinion, the 14" Wuhan China is just too small to get that deep, trashy sound that I associate with as a china. This cymbal sounds more high pitched and tinny - with wooden sticks - and worse with nylon tips. They may sound good with some soft ball mallets, but I don't play that style music.

              I think in this case, you get what you pay for. The cymbal has a nice sound for what i was looking for. Although, the paint job on it is a bit lazy. Other than that, i've given it quite the beating and it holds up pretty well. I payed 30 and i expected a 30 cymbal, so all in all, its great for the money.

                      I have played with all different sized wuhan China's , they all have one thing in common, though they may sound nice at first they do crack very easily. The 16 and 18 inch I had previously lasted atleast a little longer than the 12 I just tried out. I used the 12 inch at my bands practice twice and it started cracking and not it is in many different pieces. These are cool for beginners but definitely not if you looking for a quality cymbal that will last through the playing.

                        I've only played drums for 4 years and I've always loved china cymbals. This was my first China and I wasn't disappointed when I set it up and played around on it. This China doesn't have magnificent tone, but you'll hear it, and I highly suggest it to all drummers, especially novices.

                        Finally, a cymbal that I like AND use that didn't cost me an arm and a leg! I'm not a slammer but, I don't spare the horsepower either. As long as you treat them like you should, they last. I own 5 of these in various sizes, 10", 14" and 16". Most importanly, know what you want. If you want a big ringer, this isn't your cymbal. If you want one that is snappy, trashy and goes away quickly (like a ninja in the night) this is your cymbal!

                              I just recieved my cymbal from UPS, and was very disappointed to find the bell extremely rusted, and it has a bunch of rusted dings in it as well. I've owned hand-hammered cymbals before, so I expected imperfections. Now I have to do an exchange and wait another week for my cymbal. You'd think they'd inspect product before shipping it out.
