^^^ Yep, you really haven't played many chinas if you think that's a really trashy china. Not talking trash, just saying. :)

How well do Wuahans fit into a cymbal bag? i have a 16' crash a 20' ride and a 18' crash. I ask because of the exaggerated bell on it. Also do they dent easily? I have heard that they do.

Aye, decent china but not all that trashy when compared to a traditional. :)

That depends on how big your bag is.

They're very thin and hand hammered cymbals so they do dent/crack/break easily if you just hammer on them all the time. But, on the flip side, any cracks just add to the trashy sound.

Guys, how bout Zildjian O'trash?? I heard lots of good stuff about them too! I personally like the Wuhan too, but many people said that it cracked easily!

oh yeah they crack easily. but they're CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP. I have no problems cracking a cymbal that I paid less than 50 bux for. Just get another one, heh.

However, I'm seriously babying my 14" early 80's vintage wuhan I just bought from poboy. It's thinner than the modern wuhans, and I want to keep it good for as long as possible. it's not replaceable.

You really can't go wrong with Wuhan. I have an 18" china that hasn't cracked yet. I've had it for several years and I hit it quite a bit. Sometimes I'll even play a blast on it but it hasn't cracked yet.

i know ur probably looking for a bigger china, but the only one i have ever had was a 12 inch wuhan. it only sounded good with guitars in my opinion. but it was only 12 dollars. do the math. break up once a week if u wanted. :shock:

sorry but i don't understand that statement...
 
I've had nothing but bad luck with Wuhan chinas. I'd destroy one at least every 8 months, not that I'm a hard basher or anything.

I got a discontinued 16" LP Rancan china from Ebay last Christmas 2007 for like 30 bucks. That thing sounded killer and cut through clear as a bell! Loud! It cracked about 4 months ago and I ended up losing a chunk out of the edge. I think it got stepped on in my cymbal bag or something landed on it. Bummed me out.

After I decommissioned my Rancan, I found a Zildjian Oriental Trash 16" for $75. Not even kidding! It was used, but nothing more than some finger prints on it. It's in great, almost new condition. And it's what I still use currently. Sounds great and cuts through!

I dread the day that thing cracks.
