        Comments about Zildjian FX Oriental 18" China "Trash" Cymbal:

        This has to be my favorite china cymbal all across the board. Nothing compares to it in my opinion. You get a very refined, clean sound out of it, which pairs with the trashiness that you expect from a china. Zildjian really hit the nail on the head with the 18" oriental trash china. The decay is perfect, the look of it is gorgeous, and the sound is so extremely versatile. I've seen this china used in punk rock, heavy metal, alternative rock, funk, and I swear I've even seen a jazz drummer with one. The only thing about this cymbal is it's a little on the brittle side, but as long as you're conscious of how hard you're hitting you should really have no problems with it. Absolutely amazing. I would recommend this to most drummers in most genres. Only place it really isn't applicable is country music, but I've seen weirder things done.

        This is a real hands on product review from Chris @ Sam Ash Huntington.

        Comments about Zildjian FX Oriental 18" China "Trash" Cymbal:

        "Whoa! The first time I hit this cymbal out with my band , I don't know whether they thought it was an efx or whether they just got cracked in the back with a whip. Explosive! This is a awsome sounding China. I have played many a' China cymbal in my time but this is the one if you want to be heard. I suggest letting the cymbal breathe versus tighting it down with the felts. It has more sustain that way. It's also good to ride towards the bell. Tim Alexander uses this cymbal in his line-up. Sweet, sweet,sweet!"
