      Strong China sound with medium decay and a high pitch.

      The A Series Zildjian is the world's most popular and most versatile cymbal. It is created from cast bronze alloy of 80% copper, 20% tin, and traces of silver. It is symmetrically machine hammered, and lathed with a traditional wide groove. The result is an exuberant cymbal that bursts with a classic voice that is pure, bright, and expressive.

      I got the 20" China boy high about a year ago, and man...it has been a wild ride. This thing is almost perfect, it has a nice full sound, trashy, and all around great.However (for me) it is super long. the ringing goes on for almost 20 seconds. But this was easily fixed by throwing some good old duct tape and perfection was achieved. that is yet another reason why it's so nice. It can be high pitched and ringy (still sounding awesome) or dampened and get dark and fast (still being super loud). BUY IT NOW

      I used this cymbal in a jazz ensemble last year and I just didnt like it very much. To put it plainly it felt "stiff" when i hit it, it didnt produce much sound, and it felt like i was going to shatter it whenever I hit it. Not a comfortable feeling when trying to keep a beat. I prefer the sound of Sabian's chinas over this. It's just not sturdy enough in my opinion.

      Okay...

      Comments about Zildjian A Series China High Cymbal:

      I haven't owned it more than 6 months and it already cracked, but it was owned before me. I almost cried! I'm a hard hitter though, so I expected it. The tone seemed too HIGH for me.. hence the name! I think I'll try the low next.

      great

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Zildjian A Series China High Cymbal:

      ok so, personally i like this china pretty much alot, the sound is super trashy and loud (own the 20") and it has a great fell with the initial stroke. however it is a LITTLE high pitched for me but still great, currently i think a Paiste Wild China might fufill the need for a lower pitched cymbal, but whatever

      Amazing.

      By PxMoney

      from paducah

      Comments about Zildjian A Series China High Cymbal:

      This china sends chills down my spine with every stroke. it has such a great trashy sound and so much brash i nearly tear up at its beauty =D. i just bought it from a local dealer, and i have to say its one of the best cymbals ive ever owned. so far it has done nothing but pleased me. I think anyone who has broken theirs has either tightened it far too much, or had it bell-side up, which is always a no-no with any china. but still, this china is loud, bright, and damn brutal. i definatley recommend it.

      Great China!

      Comments about Zildjian A Series China High Cymbal:

      I honestly think that the people that have cracked their chinas have played too hard. It's a great sounding china, very explosive and great for trashy moments. Also, look on Zildjian's web site. The thickness is "thin," which means be careful haha. Great cymbal overall!

      Comments about Zildjian A Series China High Cymbal:

      I cracked this cymbal within a matter of months. It may just be me but this cymbal does not last. Great sound though when it functions.

      Comments about Zildjian A Series China High Cymbal:

      I didnt like this one much. Its not too loud and it just not enough china for me. I prefer a ZBT china over this one, screams like a champ. Look around, mix and match.

      Good Cymbal

      Comments about Zildjian A Series China High Cymbal:

      Good China, but expensive. I had mine for about 5 months and then it cracked, about a 1.5' crack, and it happened instantly. You can always hear when a cymbal cracks, it rattles, so it was strange when a crack that large appeared that quickly. Oh well. Thank goodness for warrantys. Good cymbal, GREAT sound. Breaks too easily...

      great china

      By barneythebarnicle

      from san diego ca

      Comments about Zildjian A Series China High Cymbal:

      Fantastic full china sound. sounds great played soft or hard, with brushes or marching snare sticks (not recommended) for jazz or metal. Among my favorite china sounds along with the oriental china trash a great and similar cymbal with its own personality. I use the 18's in both.

      Great Classic China

      By drumskins

      from Central LA

      Comments about Zildjian A Series China High Cymbal:

      If you're looking for a great versatile China that will fit about any genre, then this one should fill the bill. Nice and explosive with a fairly quick decay, yet can be expressive when played lightly. You can't go wrong with this or the Oriental China Trash.
