weiss 18" china cymbal

Weiss 18" China Cymbal

Weiss 18" china cymbal is hand-made in Wuhan China and produces an explosive and trashy, authentic sound. The amount of detail invloved in making this china cymbal is far greater than the low price that is charged for them. Often referred to as Lion...

Love it!!!

Cool, but not for me

Comments:

It's a great cymbal, but it's not really for me. I tried to let it grow on me but it didn't.

Nice!

Comments:

This cymbal is very loud and explosive, great for metalcore genre. I gave it a 4 because it's a little to uncontrolled but still great Quality for the price. Oh, and a forgot to mention, this bad boy is not gonna crack on you, it's very durable.

Nice Instrument

Comments:

Great value. I have both a 16" and 18" version. I will definitely be expanding our school's collection of these to include the other sizes. Great cymbal-immediate response, appropriate decay.

Weiss 18

Comments:

This is a great cymbal! It has a very bright tone, much nicer than models costing twice as much. If you roll the edge, you achieve a great gong effect too. This is a great value in cymbals. You won't be disappointed.

Sweet China!

Comments:

I own the 12", 14", 16", 18" and 20" Models of these, and they put my Zildjian 18" High China to SHAME!! The sound is perfect, the price is amazing, and they are just wonderful to have! They are stamped "made in wuhan china", so you know they are good!

Weiss 18

Comments:

WOW I blew out my China a week before a recording session and Steve Weiss Music totally helped me out by recommending this as a quick economic solution. It's totally worth it if you're on a tight budget and need a China NOW. The most important thing, the sound, will totally back you up. PROS: affordable, tough, good sound flavor, good looking bright finish - lights love to bounce off it. For even more variety I've been doing swells on it with soft mallets. CONS: short sustain, almost as short as a splash cymbal (you gotta be good at those swells to make 'em mashed-potatoey), a lot lower volume than my last China, which I used to use to command a room - however, the more subtle volume also means you can play it more & use it for rhythm patterns, so it kinda winds up being a plus. Conclusion: my advice is if you're on the fence (cuz this is money you could save & use for a more expensive China), you might be wasting valuable drum time where you could have been using this and expressing yourself more correctly. I say go for it!
