Re: About to purchase...thoughts before purchasing?
I would strongly advise against buying an Oriental China unless you've heard them in person. To my ears, they sound just awful- super heavy for a china, weird profile, and annoying overtones, but I know a few people that do actually like it. It's a very polarizing china and there's no way to know if you'd like it except in person. Check out the Sabian 19" Holy China, 19" AAXtreme, or Meinl Byzance Brilliant 20" and see what you think.
