Default Mounting china cymbals

I'm considering getting a china cymbal for my setup and was wondering if there was any reason not to mount it using a clamp (i'm only gonna get a small 14" if i get one)
like this one:

thanks in advance to any replies

I would buy the regular stand just for the sake of having a regular stand in case you want to put a different cymbal on you kit in place of the china.

But really, this is up to your personal preference on looks and if you have the floor space for more stand legs.

That clamp would work fine.

I have used that exact clamp for a 20" china and an 18" rock crash. No issues.

It kind of depends on what kind of China, and how you want to mount it. I have a 14.5 in and I mount it vertically, it seems to work better on its own stand without an arm. I think this is more common with thinner more explosive China cymbals once referred to as "Pang" cymbals, they sound like firecrackers to me. The stand works pretty well for other percussion underneath like cowbell or a small tom mount.

When you pick out a China, make sure it works with your other cymbals and drums. I think China cymbals are designed for harmonizing cymbals and drums, which is how it seems to get used in Chinese ensembles. In my set I like to use mine as accents with the snare or in the mix with crashes and rides.
