this cymbal is great, its loud and the more you play it the better it sounds. The only problem is that its not a very well balenced cymbal, so you always end up hitting it on one side,which leads to it cracking, so if you beat your cymbals, make sure its balenced before you buy it.
This cymbal add a wonderful punch. Especially the 18" A custom China boy located right next to the 20" FX Oriental, seems to compliment each other well. Played together or simultaneously sounds great.
I love this cymbal I'm getting it from Santa Claus I will turn it UPSIDE DOWN
i record with my bad with this china as my left china, i use the k custom hybrid china 19" and the k series china 19" for heavy breakdowns. but this china is so trashy that i would wake up in the morning go 2 the basement and play my china day in and day out
