Medium Thin China Cymbals
Product Price $120.00
In the world of music, names can sometimes be misleading (did you know that the English horn was actually created in France?). But if there's one family of instruments that you can usually trust to live up to their titles, it's the cymbals. Take China cymbals for instance: they're basically a cross between gongs and effects cymbals, scaled to a size and strength that fits seamlessly into a standard drum kit. Like most other cymbals, they also come in a range of weights, or thicknesses. Medium-thin China cymbals are on the thinner side, but they still have a bit of meat on their bones - just enough to give them a hint of volume and sustain, which makes for a pretty versatile cymbal.
You'll find lots of variety here to choose from, so not only is each cymbal versatile in and of itself, but you can also pick and choose to get the best fit for your personal style. If you like your cymbals dry, with a gritty aesthetic onstage, check out the Meinl Byzance Extra Dry China Cymbal. If you like a sweet-sounding status symbol, maybe the Paiste Formula 602 Modern Essentials China would be up your alley? Or maybe you'd just like to follow the trail blazed by one of the world's greatest drummers - in that case, you'll probably want to take a look at the Sabian Neil Peart Paragon China (or its close relative, the Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Chinese Brilliant).
The catch is that, since drumming is all about personal preference, nobody can tell you which medium-thin China cymbals belong at the top of your wish list. You'll have to figure that out yourself! But that's the silver lining right there: you've got the freedom to decide exactly what you're looking for. So feel free to take your time and weigh all the pros and cons of the cymbals you see here. Read up on some reviews, consider the ratings, and imagine each cymbal sitting on one of your stands - you'll find your next China cymbal soon enough.
