Best china ever. I really don't think there is any other china that sounds better. I tried out every single one at my local music shop, and I picked this one for a reason. Zildjian has been around for several hundred years, so they've established a good name and reputation for themselves. This cymbal just stuck out to me, soundwise and lookwise. I got it, and it's now on every kit I play. This cymbal is my baby. I would recommend making it yours too.

This cymbal has an enormous sound. It cuts through everything when playing live, and its really good for breakdowns. The quality is horrible though. I literally had it for a few months and it got a crack in it. Gradually that crack became bigger, and bigger, then chunks started to fly off off it until it sounded like hitting some sheet metal. You're better off buying one of the cheap wuhan china's than this,(which sound just as good) unless your a Zildjian fanboy. The biggest flaw in my opinion is the price, for the quality of the product, the price is ridiculous.

    Comments about Zildjian Oriental China 'Trash' Cymbal:

    This china is awesome!!!I'm a huge August Burns Red fan and Matt Greiner uses this china in his set up. Cut's through beautifully. Easily my loudest cymbal. Decays fairly quickly for the size and overall is a great buy.As great as this china sounds, it's not going to sound great right out of the box. It needs time to be "broken in" from my experience at least. Give it some time, and this will be a great sounding china.

    Comments about Zildjian Oriental China 'Trash' Cymbal:

    I have the 18" and the 13". These chinas are BEAST. Matt Greiner of August Burns Red uses the 18" and the 12", but I personally like the 13" better than the 12" so I got the 13". Absolutely brutal sounding. The 18" is perfect for breakdowns and the 13" is perfect for an extra small china effect. WARNING: The red letters come off much easier than the black letters if you clean your cymbals. It actaully look my red lettering entirely off. Doesn't really matter though, I wasn't a fan of the red anyway.

    I own the 18 inch cymbal and it is a wonderful addition to my other Zildjians! It really adds to the effects and it cuts through any type of music. It goes quite well with the 11 inch china splash! I highly recommend this cymbal.
    Excellent quality!
    Well worth the price!

        This cymbal sounds amazing. Sounds just like a china you would hear in a metal album. Same cymbal Matt Griener of August Burns Red uses, and so do many other drummers. Decay is nice and fast. Perfect for breakdowns. Really cuts through the rest of the band. I love playing live shows with this cymbal. Everyone compliments its sound.

        Comments about Zildjian Oriental China 'Trash' Cymbal:

        I got this cymbal (the 16" model) as my first china because I wanted to play heavy metal and was astounded by its sound in my local percussion shop. The sound is amazing- Very bright but a hint of dark, extremely trashy, extremely short sustain, and cuts through ANYTHING. Yes the sound was amazing, but I don't think this china is meant for heavy use like breakdowns every song or even for very hard hitters. After about 8 months of semi-frequent use, it has developed a small crack parallel to the turned edge, right where it meets the body of the cymbal. Fortunately, the sound is still alight, but now I have to be very careful with it, using it for accents only and no more breakdowns. The crack has been slowly growing and leaves this horrible sizzle if you play the china by itself. Overall this is a near perfect sounding china, but its just not durable for heavy hitters/music. And at this price point this is quite disappointing. I'd probably buy the exact model again and use it for only accents, and get a cheap replaceable china like a Wuhan for breakdowns and such. So it's a great cymbal, just be nice to it :)

        Comments about Zildjian Oriental China 'Trash' Cymbal:

        Picked this up about a month ago. I'm a china-a-holic (I usually have four on my kit at a time), and after being frustrated with lack of quality in mini-chinas from other brands, I decided to stop fooling around and get a Zildjian China Trash. It has the perfect sound. Super bright and cutting yet trashy and fast, it has the best of both worlds. I use it for accents during blastbeats and funky fills or an alternate china for breakdowns. They are a bit on the pricy side, but you absolutely get what you pay for. I've tapped on most of the sizes available, and they are definitely some of the best quality chinas I've heard no matter the size.

        I bought an A 20" trash in a pawn shop and didn't know what a jewel I had until I brought it home and played it with my set. I like to hit it along with a regular cymbal for a completely differnt sound. I would recommend Zildjian trashes to anyone that wants to add a new dimension to their kit.

        I bought this used off a friend of mine. This thing is AWESOME!! This is actually the first china I've ever actually owned (other than little 10" and 12"), but I've used Wuhans and the only thing they have over this thing is the price. GREAT quality! Unlike a Wuhan, I think I could run my car over this thing without damaging it! Great sound, great quality, if you have the money, BUY IT!!

          Pretty good, but the edge seems to knick easily. I got it used for pretty cheap. 145, pretty much brand new. But the edge has some knicks that will probably turn to cracks. I had it going on a year now. Amazing cymbal. I bought it to replace my Sabian AA Metal-X china 18 inch. I still use the Sabian as my Main china and the oriental to my left. I need to buy a 14 or 16 because I broke my HHX 14 inch china in half. And I dont have bad technique either.

          Sounds incredible. This cymbal is perfect for marching bands and drum corps. I would not recommend this for heavy hitters, or people who use their china cymbals a lot. I used to be in a metalcore band, and this china started breaking in 3 months. After using it for 6 months, it was too broken to use. I did not play with poor technique and I used cymbal springs. It's perfect for accents, but it's not durable enouigh for frequent use (unless you have the money to get a new china twice a year).

          This was my first china cymbal, I have had the 16" model for about 8 months now and the sound is amazing. It's bright but just a hint of dark, extremely trashy, short sustain, imagine the perfect breakdown cymbal that is also perfect for a bright, crisp accent. My only gripe with this cymbal is that at such a high price point, it is not durable for heavy use. Mine developed a crack in the brim, which fortunately doesn't render the cymbal unusable or take away too much sound, but we all know once a cymbal cracks its the beginning of the end. I would buy this again, but refrain from using it heavily as I don't think it's intended as a workhorse cymbal. I imagine if I only used it for accents it would last years or longer

          This china cymbal is one of the best i have ever used ( Zildjian ZBT, ZXT, K custom, etc.). I bought the 14" to use as a mini-china to hold my two mounted toms. It is very thin but has a great sound to it. This is not the china for metalcore or screamo drummers but i might recommend the Zildjian ZXT effects package for a china and a ZXT flash-splash.

          Comments about Zildjian Oriental China 'Trash' Cymbal:

          It took me months of trying different chinas to find the one that sounded best, and this is definitely it. The 14 inch has the sweetest sound and a moderately fast decay, you can play it fast and not have a large build up of noise. The only problem is that it breaks easily. I'm going onto my 5th one in 2 years.
