Lasted just under 2 years
Inveracity, 28.09.2020
This china was the workhorse on my kit.
Playing metal it went through some pretty severe punishment.
Excellent sound, very cutting without being intrusive.
Unfortunately after a year and 10 months it cracked. Which has now given it a very trashy sound with a shorter sustain.

I'd hoped it would have lasted longer, but I'll keep using it until it's completely obliterated.

Absolutely worth it.

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.

A bit too loud and cutting sound for my tastes. Still the best China I ever had.

I used the Zildjian P1300 Cymbal Cleaning Polish on it (by accident, it is NOT recommended to be used on it since it's a traditional finish cymbal) and it affected its sound. It is now a bit warmer and not so cutting, so just perfect for me :). It also changed its color a little, but I don't care about that.
