It sounds great as an accent cymbal, on it's own, or with a snare. Can use it in a beat as well. Very versatile.


I couldn't agree with you more. I love that china. That cymbal has great sound at any volume. I can play quarter notes aggressively with it while doing double bass patterns, and I can blend it in smoothly with my splashes. I swear by that cymbal.

Wuhan. China cymbals... from china.

They may break quick but they are really cheap. I have a 20" and a 22". The bigger the better sound in my opinion.

Come to think of it actually, I've only ever broken wuhan splashes. I've had the same chinas for years now.
