^^^ Yep, you really haven't played many chinas if you think that's a really trashy china. Not talking trash, just saying. :)

How well do Wuahans fit into a cymbal bag? i have a 16' crash a 20' ride and a 18' crash. I ask because of the exaggerated bell on it. Also do they dent easily? I have heard that they do.

Aye, decent china but not all that trashy when compared to a traditional. :)

That depends on how big your bag is.

They're very thin and hand hammered cymbals so they do dent/crack/break easily if you just hammer on them all the time. But, on the flip side, any cracks just add to the trashy sound.

oh yeah they crack easily. but they're CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP. I have no problems cracking a cymbal that I paid less than 50 bux for. Just get another one, heh.

However, I'm seriously babying my 14" early 80's vintage wuhan I just bought from poboy. It's thinner than the modern wuhans, and I want to keep it good for as long as possible. it's not replaceable.

You really can't go wrong with Wuhan. I have an 18" china that hasn't cracked yet. I've had it for several years and I hit it quite a bit. Sometimes I'll even play a blast on it but it hasn't cracked yet.

i know ur probably looking for a bigger china, but the only one i have ever had was a 12 inch wuhan. it only sounded good with guitars in my opinion. but it was only 12 dollars. do the math. break up once a week if u wanted. :shock:
