Almost perfect
03.06.2016
Before I got my hands onto this cymbal, frankly speaking I expected it to sound kind of bad because of its price

But when I tried it, I kind of felt lucky and glad for buying this kind-of-low-priced China cymba; it sounds excellent and Zultan seriously didn't lie about the sound i.e. short and beautiful high pitched with slowly decaying vibrations

I tried making a stack cymbal using this China as well and it sounded simply amazing

And this may sound silly but I like how shiny this cymbal is haha

This China is suitable for metal music that involves a lot of breakdowns in my opinion like deathcore

No cons. Used this live once, sounds fine live

LOUD & OBNOXIOUS as all metal chinas should be
Alex Djuran, 07.04.2019
This is my 1st china and I don't have much to compare it to. I have heard demos of some lower tier chinas and none of them really sounded all that pleasant and downright hurt my ears a tad.

Naturally, it came as a surprise to me when I heard one I actually thoought was good and this, this is incredible. It's loud without being overbearing on the ears and it sounds great in a drum mix. Decays relatively fast but just enough to hit it again.

Very much recommended!

Kaufempfehlung!
Tim427, 22.08.2012
Ich habe mir dieses China bestellt, weil ich ein recht günstiges China für mein Proberaum-Set brauchte, aber sehr eigen bin, was Becken angeht.
Ich packte es Zuhause aus und beschloss bereits beim erstem Spiel, dass ich dieses China daheim behalte und dafür das Meinl Classic China 18" in den Proberaum wandert.
Es ist meiner Meinung nach um Klassen besser, was auf die Legierung zurückzuführen ist, allerdings ist die

Verarbeitung an dem Loch recht unsauber; das Loch ist nicht rund. Aber das ist ein Makel, mit dem ich Leben kann, wenn man den Sound angesichts des Preises bedenkt.

Der Klang ist ähnlich dem in dem Hörspiel, allerdings finde ich, das es in natura um einiges besser klingt. Jedenfalls das, welches ich bekam, denn handgehämmerte Becken sind Einzelstücke und klingen immer anders.

Fazit:
Makel in der Verarbeitung des Lochs, allerdings nicht sehr dramatisch; für ein handgehämmertes Becken in B20-Legierung ein sehr günstiger Preis; ein genialer Klang, der den armen Gitarristen der Band (ohne Gehörschutz) fluchen lässt :P

---

Nach 1 1/2 Jahren hat dieses Chinabecken allerdings den Geist aufgegeben. Scheint für meine spielweise doch etwas zu dünn zu sein. Aufgrund des Preises (und meiner Spielweise) kann ich dieses Becken dennoch empfehlen ;-)

---

Das zweite China dieser Sorte hat auch innerhalb eines Jahres bei mir die Lebenslust verloren. Nachfolger ist jetzt das Zultan Rockbeat China 18" Holey geworden. Trotz der Löcher ist es deutlich langlebiger und gefällt mir klanglich deutlich besser. Dennoch bin ich der Meinung, dass das Rockbeat 18" China (ohne Löcher) ein sehr gutes Becken ist und bei nicht so harter Spielweise auch länger hält.
Weiterhin Kaufempfehlung, wer die Holeyversion zu trahig oder aggressiv findet.

Se si paragona questo piatto ad altri di marche ben più blasonate della medesima fascia di prezzo, non si potrà che rimanere favorevolmente colpiti. Non solo per la fattura e costruzione (si tratta B20, non brass giocattolo), ma anche per il suono che ha una coda controllata come si addice alla tipologia del piatto.
Certo come pesantezza per il rock (nome della serie) troviamo piatti più "hard" (non è un "rude"), tuttavia pare essere degnamente robusto.
Ribadisco: a questo prezzo, sul nuovo, difficile trovare molto di meglio.
