      OVERVIEW

      An affordable crash made from the same B20 alloy as many high-end cymbals.

      The small sizes and medium-thin weight of these Wuhan crash provide an excellent balance of quick, explosive response and rapid decay. This balance of characteristics makes them perfect for adding crisp accents to musical passages.

      The best crash cymbals money can buy? No.
      The best crash cymbals so little money can buy? Absolutely.

      Wuhan cymbals don't presume to challenge the sound quality, variety, or reputations of the fine professional-level cymbals on today's market. But when it comes to being affordable, that's another story.

      Generally, "affordable" cymbals are made of less-expensive sheet alloys, using shortcut manufacturing methods and finishing steps in order to keep the cost down. With the resulting cymbals, you pretty much get what you pay for.

      Wuhan cymbals are made of high-quality, cast B20 alloy. Handcrafted in China according to two-thousand-year-old traditional methods, this crash cymbal is buffed to a brilliant finish, and stamped with an unobtrusive but attractive logo.

      FEATURES

      An affordable, good-sounding alternative crash.

        I play in a metal band and I bought these cymbals for their dark signature sound. They are not by any means bright-sounding, but rather dark and explosive. If you are a hard hitter, think twice before buying these cymbals. They are medium cymbals, not heavy cymbals. I bought mine 5 months ago and they have severely cracked beyond repair and don't sound nearly as good as they did before (obviously). While I know how to play them without breaking them, one of my bands guitar players got on my kit a few times and completely destroyed them, leaving large cracks over just a few hours total of playing. Be careful with these, and use proper technique. They are not incredibly loud or piercing, so it may be tempting to hit them pretty hard - don't! The bright side is that they're very affordable to replace.

        I own both the 16" crash and the 18" crash/ride. Interestingly enough, the 18" has a higher tone than the 16." I typically used the 18" crash/ride for heavier riffs coming off the hi-hat, used my 18" Wuhan china for most heavy breakdowns, and switched to the 16" for the really slow and nasty breakdowns because the 16" has the lowest, darkest, and meanest sound. They're great cymbals, but fragile. Use some love and care.
        Dark, gloomy sound.
        Brilliant finish, good metal and sound.
        These are the best bang-for-your-buck cymbals you can get today. If you're on a budget, these cymbals are for you. High quality B20 bronze cymbals cannot be found anywhere else at this price.

        Where to begin. Lets start with pro and cons.Pros: B20 alloy, loud, decent sound, and inexpensive.
        Cons: ( with mine ) Out of round. 3 rust spots from the lathing clamp that won't come out. The weight is very lopsided, you can feel when you hold it. 2 small cracks on the edge from flattening the cast. I also don't think it was rounded or edged. Very poorly lathed.
        Bottom line: I wouldn't purchase onother one. Typical product from China. Poorly made.
        If you're looking for cheap disposable entry level cymbals I'm sure these should hold you over for a year or so. If you're a pro or heavy hitter these won't last. Because of all the positive reviews I thought I would go ahead and take a chance. I'm going to keep mine as a back up. It's not worth the hassle to return. You always get what you pay for. Go Sabian or Paiste.

        Comments about Wuhan Crash Cymbal:

        This is honestly one of the best buys you can make for your drum set. I use this cymbal at our church as kind of a filler cymbal with my aax xplosion crashs, ride, splash, and hats. The Wuhan costs less than half the cost of any of my other cymbals and it delivers a very good quality sound. The only downside is that it won't last as long as the expensive cymbals. This is definitely a great buy for someone with a low budget and that doesn't hit hard. I highly recommend it.

          Comments about Wuhan Crash Cymbal:

          I received one of these for my birthday and it has blown me away. I play anything from classic rock to metal, and this cymbal gets it all. It has the nice crash-y sound everyone looks for but is hard to come by in cheaper cymbals. The quality is amazing and you get a lot of amazing sound for such a low price. Generally speaking, cheaper crashes aren't the greatest, you usually end up playing them and they almost sound like a very large splash cymbal, but not this. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone, novice or experienced alike! The only con i could find is that if you would like to play the bell for an effect type of sound, it lacks there. But leave that for your effect cymbals, not your crash.

                    Comments about Wuhan Crash Cymbal:

                    Wuhan makes some nice cymbals but their crashes are lacking. I own a 16 inch. It's pretty bright and has very annoying overtones. Piercing, unpleasant, unmusical overtones. The general tone of the cymbal is just unpleasant. It's made of B20, but in certain spaces, I could easily confuse it for an entry level, generic brass cymbal.

                          Needless to say, this is a bargain. More importantly, I've been looking for a thin crash, with as little bell quality to its sound as possible, for some time now. This one's it! Very responsive, and a variety of sounds available if you take time to study the cymbal. It may appear a bit gong-y (and it is) when you try it first, but again, there's much more to this Wuhan than meets the ear. Highly recommend

                                I bought the 14" and I love it! This crash beats any of the big brand machine-made cymbals in a heartbeat.

                                I purchased it to complement my 16" Zildjian Paper-thin and I seriously think this Wuhan is actually louder.

                                You really can't beat the quality and sound for the price!

                                    I've been drumming for around 8 years. I play many different styles of metal music. Spending 200-300 per cymbal is just not an option for most people right now. Thank goodness for Wuhan. I started with a china about a year ago. I was so surprised with what I got for my money that 6 months later I ordered this crash(16"), again so surprised with the "bang for buck" that Wuhan offers, I ordered the 14" crash. These cymbals are worth a try. Seriously!
