i have a 12" that i bought about 6 months ago for $12. i play it bell down so im hitting the lip. there are 2 cracks totaling about 3" on the inside of the lip but the cymbal still sounds good.

wuhan chinas are the most personal cymbals you can buy because they all sound very different. i looked at getting another one just a couple days ago and the lips on the 12" ones varied between 1 and 2 inches and none of the ones i played sounded good but i loved the way mine sounded new. these cymbals even sound different if you hit the same one in different spots. if you want to get one you have to play it first to know what youre getting.

Agreed. Wuhans are outstanding Chinas for the price. They are handmade, and as anavrinIV said, you will need to play each one, as they are all completely different. Many drummers (both famous and not famous) use Wuhans, including Neil Peart, who before signing with Sabian and creating the Paragon line, had 2 Wuhan Chinas in his setup that in his own words he "held sacred".

Beware, they crack easily. They sound kind of cool with a crack in them though. You can't go wrong with them for the price.
