Comments:

Guys it was a toss up between 4 & 5 stars, so read on. I bought it beacuse I needed a new china, went to three different stores and this Paiste Novo China sounded head & shoulders better than everything else. I slept on it, went back, and yep - still blew my mind how good it sounded. So I ate rice & ramen for a couple weeks to save the money and brought it home. It has a bell on it - I thought that would be useful but I don't use it much. Okay so I started playing on it and it sounded so good I took it off and saved it for studio or special occasions, and used a 18" Sabian B8 Pro China (which the Sabian is totally cool, and has wonderful character, like an industrial machine venting air pressure but with lots of flavor). So why would I wanna give the Paiste Novo 4 stars instead of 5? Well, it was phonomenal in the hard rock band, but then I joined a hardcore band (think Minor Threat, Verbal Abuse or D.R.I., real fast and hard stuff) and it was TOO loud and had TOO much sustain for that kind of music; which surprised me in a lot of different ways, I thought that music was SUPPOSED to be loud and big but nope, this cymbal was totally out of place in that band. For extreme and fast hardcore, smaller 16" fast crashes seem to work best, and the Sabian B8 Pro 18" China. After that hardcore band was over, I went back to hard rock and this Paiste Novo China went right back to ruling the universe again without missing a step, so that's why I went with 5 stars. I don't like Zildjians, during shopping, ALL of them sounded like trashy trash can lids to me. Maybe they sound better in context when the whole band plays, but still you could make your own out of an ACTUAL trash can lid and save the $400 bucks. I would buy a half dozen of these Paiste Novos for back up, believe it.
