if your looking to add a new unique cymbal to your set, try this out...
i bought a 10' wuhan splash for 10 bucks out of a catalog, not expecting much. and well... i diddnt get much. it has no attack and a really, really ugly overtone :?

so i got bored and started messing with it, and since these cymbals are so thin, i managed to pop it inside out.

and believe it or not, it actually sounds really awesome like this. i actually get comments on it and people wanna know where i got the messed-up looking splash. it sounds like a small splash (its higher pitched than my 8 inch splash) and a kinda trashy china sound at the same time... i love it. it sounds really awesome stacked with my 14' zildjian zxt trashformer, but ive been using it alone lately. just a cool idea you might wanna try :D for 10 bucks, what do you have to lose?

HA!!! I bought the 12" at GC for . . . $12. It sounds like a china in a dry room, but ain't half bad in a more open sounding room.

That's what Sabian did when they began selling the B8, B8Pro, AA and AAX China Splashes. I had the AA model. One of the coolest cymbals that I ever had before I began endorsing Saluda.

Maybe they could arrange some signature series cymbals for you?

i had a few stagg cymbals lying about so popped them insideout(back to front / upside down) or however you described what you do with them they sounded cool defo ring like a bell alot more. i popped the 18" stagg crash and it was great for riding on as a crash ride.

another thing to mention... those splashes are so damn thin and flexible, theyre nearly impossible to break. had that one for 3 years, not a scratch on it.
