A Beautiful China with a subtle edge

Thomas7957, 09.02.2015
This Zildjian K-Custom 17" China cymbal is just a great all rounder.

The sound is trashy, as you'd expect from a china cymbal, however not to the point where it intrudes over your other voicing's.
The tones are dark and warm, and the cymbal responds well to a lighter touch... where as many other china cymbals have an 'All or Nothing' type threshold.

So all in all, its good for light playing as well. Though I wouldn't go as far as riding on it.

The hammering, as with all K-Custom cymbals, is not only beautiful but also delivers that K-Custom dark shudder we are all so fond of.

This has proved to be a great, beautiful, subtle and above all versatile china cymbal that I will no doubt enjoy for quite some time.

Great tone, but a bit stiff

I play a lot of metal and trash, so I need a china. I'm keeping it bell-side down. This is the first china I've ever bought, and here's what I think of it:

I love the tone, it's dark and trashy and gives me the chills.
But, I wished more "slushy" sound and a longer decoy. This china has a quick attack, but the impact sound is a bit metallish. "Clang". Either the great china sounds I've been hearing have been mixed very much, or then there really are chinas with a slushier, softer sound that doesn't die so fast. This one is kinda stiff/hard to play. It feels like it doesn't light up to the fullest sound it should have unless I hit it hard enough, which I don't want to do because I wan't to preserve it for a long time.
It's loud. Louder than my K-Custom Dark Crashes, but it's alright. Maybe I'd just like my china to have a steady sustain while playing it, like a crash does.

When I received this cymbal, it had a black line circling the inner edge. Just a cosmetic thing, came from manufacturing propably.

Excellent tone, too short sustain.
