Default New cymbals! (Caution: Hot)

I got some new cymbals this week...
First up is my 17" Zildjian K Custom Dark China




Then a 20.5" Wuhan China



And then some other shots



Now I just need to buy a few more stands, another crash and perhaps a splash.

Oh and heres a free cymbal I got.

I'm thinking I'm gonna get Johan or someone to turn it into a nice trashy splash.

niIiiiice!! bet those chinas sound awesome. bit of a price difference between them though, right?

for your "trashy splash", i have a Ziljian ZXT Titanium splash which is pretty trashy. maybe an idea, cheap too!! :D

Heh yeah, quite the price difference between them.

The 20.5" Wuhan was 60CAD and I got the 17" Dark China for 200CAD including shipping and everything.

I got the K china from cymbalcellar.com
I would definately recomend them to anyone looking for some used cymbals.
Was the best customer service I have come across. He was very helpful, answered all my questions and even recorded additional soundfiles for me.

Nice Bought Mista

Which one you prefer between both china ? Have you seen guys how the wuhan hammering look great compared to the K. It look like the K was hammered with a screwdriver...

Anyway Congrats !

Out of the two, I think I prefer the big ol' Wuhan better.
Just plain sounds better to my ears, but they are both quite different chinas (but still sound great together).
I'd say the 20.5" Wuhan is more suited to using as a ride and the ocassional crash here and there.
Where as the 17" K Custom would be better for your ''typical'' crashing on quarters sorta thing and what not.

But ofcourse both could be used for either job just fine, would just depend on whatever fits best.

not so well (to my ears) ... the 14" is just "käng", the 17" better ("kängsch"), but the k customs are really "kschsch").

hope you understand me; my wife doesn't. ;)

Yeah, thats the first thing I thought when I looked at the picture.
The china's so hot, its on fire! ooh yeah!

*ahem*

Yep..
As for what I paid,
"The 20.5" Wuhan was 60CAD and I got the 17" Dark China for 200CAD including shipping and everything."

And what line of Wuhan it is, I dont know. I'm pretty sure its from a different company than the usual Wuhan's you see in stores (ones with the big ugly lettering of Wuhan).
On the sticker it says its a "Wuhan Lion China". I've only ever seen these at Long & McQuade.

And how are the K Custom Chinas? Well, this is the only one I've really tried.
But it has exactly the sound I was looking for almost.
All the other Zildjian China's I have tried I've absolutely hated, especially those Oriental ones ZIldjian sells, those just hurt to hear.
