If you need something fast go with a Wuhan. They range from about $10 to $60. But for a good high end china go with a Sabian AAX or AA.

you know my friend, if you are looking for a quick fix chinese cymbal, wuhans are cheap and are pretty good chinas.

I actually prefer the Sabian XS20...even though it's not a high end sabian it still works very well for me. the only thing about this cymbal is that u have to break it in...once u do it gets a great sound.

i currently have a 19" sabian paragon china....and that is an absolute beast! im selling it for 180 if you are interested. i also have an 18" zildjian avedis china low.... and that is a good mellow cymbal....i use that more for funk and the paragon for rock. the paragon cuts like no other.

I like wuhans because they're cheap and trashy to the core. Hell, you could break three and it still wouldn't cost you as much as most chinas out there. I've never owned any sabian chinas so I can't comment there, but I do like the Zildjian "Oriental" trashy china. It does have more "kaanng" than a trashy sound and some people don't like that. Both my chinas at the moment are Paistes (a prototype that sounds like a cross between the dimensions line and the reflector series; and the OLD swiss made discontinued Alpha line). I like the Paiste signature heavy china in a 20". I don't own it, but I heard it at a show recently and really liked it.

Nothing i've tried or heard stands up to the Ziljian 18" Oriental Classic China.

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 have a 16" Oriental China (Zildjian) that complements my kit very well. It is a bit loud on the kit, but recorded, it sounds like breaking glass when played with the snare. Just beautiful. Played on its own in a ride pattern, it is very trashy with a short decay.

Zildjian K.
or wuhan, won't last you too long, but it should suffice.

Wuhans are the way to go if your need one right now, but you may want to consider buying two or three of them just for back up.

Myself, I use a 20 inch Oriental Crash Of Doom. It has a nice low end sound. Sounds quite evil.
