Thanks, Mark! I'm going to follow your sound advice. You know a lot more than I do about cymbals! I really appreciate your helping out!

I didn't really give you advice, just my opinion. I do not characterize myself as an expert, but I have a lot of experience over a long period of time. I've started playing in 1959 as a 13 year old teen and I've played, owned, and listened to hundreds and hundreds of cymbals over the years. However, that primarily makes me knowledgeable just about what I'm looking for in a cymbal. My preference is for jazz oriented cymbals rather than rock. They are often, but not always, two very distinct types of cymbals. What pleases my ears may be very different from what pleases yours.

Nevertheless, I certainly appreciate your experience and expertise, sir! I don't take either of these traits lightly. Thanks very much!

I do like china's, however I agree that a 14" might not add a lot to your mix.

I also can't see spending to much on one, because they are meant to be trashy, so even a cheaper one can accomplish that. I use an 18" Zildjian ZBT china, which is a beginner line of cymbals, but I'll tell you, it really has a cutting, loud, trashy sound. It does the job very well and they can be had dirt cheap.

Thanks very much, Jimmy Sticks! I've already made contact with a gentleman who has an 18 inch Sabian China for sale! I think it might be worth looking into! Thanks again.

No problem, good luck.

That Sabian sounds like the ticket, and 18" is the way to go with china's!

Grantro I think it's DrumBob

Excuse the puns, but they're really hit or miss, however when you do find one you like they are the best bang for your buck! I've had a few. Currently, I rotate a 22" Energy Ride in and out of my set up. Very cool cymbal with a heavy-ish unlathed bell and a nice hammer pattern throughout. In general, these cymbals can have an odd overtone (as with many of the Chinese cymbals - some more subtle than others) which I remedy with a half piece of Moongel if needed. This one records very well! Try 'em out!

Yes, Impression Cymbals! I knew it was one of the newer Turkish cymbal companies.

I'm endorsing Kashian Cymbals these days. But, I'm having a hard time getting in touch with anyone at the company. Nobody is picking up the phone! Got any tips Bob ?
