          Comments about Zildjian ZHT China Splash:

          This is the greatest splash on the market. Half the price of an AAX, Paragon, or even HHX splashes. It is loud enough to cut through a china, yet soft enough to be used for jazz, bluegrass. Anything. It is also aggressive enough to even be used for extreme music. Usually splashes wont fit the bill for heavy metal but this one will fit anything. It is a thin cymbal and cracks in less than a year, so i would recommend buying it with a warranty but besides that, there is nothing bad about this cymbal.

            I have played perhaps fifty or so splashes in the music stores I have been to, and this bad boy held its own against even the most expensive models I tried out. The 10" ZHT China Splash was my first upgrade from the ZBT line, and I loved it so much that I was moved to purchase my beloved Mastersound Hi-Hats from the same series. As I upgraded my other cymbals to the 16" A Medium Crash, 20" A Custom Projection Ride, and 21" Sweet Ride, I noticed that my splash still sounded amazing alongside the more high-end cymbals I had. The one thing that the China Splash has that the other splashes I tried lacked was a full yet balanced tone. Most splashed I tried were either bright or dark, while my China Splash is right in the middle, just dark enough for jazz, while maintaining enough brightness for cutting accents in rock music. Plus, if you get two of them like my friend did, they make for a pair of killer mini hi-hats! I would recommend this cymbal to anyone who has yet to find the perfect splash, because it might be this one!

            This china/splash has the exact sound I was hoping for. Good price, good sound, good value. Just airy enough, not too oriental sounding, and cuts through with extreme penetration.

            Not a bad little cymbal

            I got the 10" with the stick rebate and was skeptical until just last night when I finally got to really play it at a big gig. When you give it a good whack its got a nice splashy shimmer. If you hit is lighter you get more of the china/oriental sound, which too has its place. It worked great as a supplemental splash to my 10" A Zildjian splash. It wouldn't be my only splash, its great. It's different, but in a good way!

            I also got this cymbal with the Zildjian stick rebate and as soon as i got it i loved it. I use it along with and 8" Meinl Splash and it sounds great. If you are considering this cymbal, get it.

            Great sound but overpriced

            Comments about Zildjian ZHT China Splash:

            I got this free with a Zildjian stick deal also. Intended to sell it b/c I have all A Customs. Decided to keep it once I heard it though b/c the sound is a great compliment to my 12" A Custom. This would not be a good choice as an only splash though. Its dark and slightly china-sounding. Not loud enough to cut through for live unmiked performance. I would have returned it if I had given the going price though since a comparable sound can be had in other brands for less than 2/3 the price.

            Like the review below, I also got this cymbal for free with the zildjian stick rebate. A friend of mine has a full set of zht's and they sound pretty good. This cymbal though, is much better than pretty good. I actually LOVE this cymbal. I have been searching for this splash sound for a while and have finally found it. I have played the oriental splashes, but do not own them. From what i remember, i actually believe this splash sounds even better than the oriental splashes.

            Awesome!

            Comments about Zildjian ZHT China Splash:

            I got one of the 10" free with the Zildjian Stick Rebate. I wasn't expecting much from it. I was very impressed with the sound!I own the 9" and 11" Zildjian Oriental Trash Splashes, and this sounded nearly identical to them. It was actually the about the same pitch as the 9", but with a little more high end. ZHT's are bright cymbals, so it makes sense that it would have more highs. I am wanting to get the 8" so I can have a "full set" if you will. If you dig the Oriental Trash Splashes, then you will really dig these. They sound virtually identical(again, a bit more high end) and are less than half of the cost of the Oriental Trash Splashes. I recommend them to you!
