Right I know youre gonna go on about how stupid I was to do this but i recently bought my first ever china cymbal for over $200 and it is a Paiste RUDE 20" (Ithink its quite an old one, the bloke who sold it to me said it was from 1984 or something like that!!!), anyone know how i should play it like some diagrams or something like where i should hit it. I've been playing for nearly 5 years and with a Heavy/Thrash Metal band starting to take off I was in desperate need for one so can someone gimme some help?

first of all, turn the china upside down on the cymbal stand, hitting it on the reverse side of the cymbal will garentee a much longer life. and as for angles etc... theres many different ways u can have it, but always make sure you have it so you'r hitting the edge of it and not the centre.
