Here's what Mehmet has to say about their Traditional Swish/Chinas:

"The Traditional Series sound is suited for pretty much every style of music imaginable. The classic concept of these fully lathed cymbals has proven its value through the years. From the earliest jazz drummers and bebop pioneers, to heavy metal and the latest stylistic evolutions, the Traditional Series encompasses the sounds you’re looking for.

Dark. Responsive. Controllable. Musical."

Weighing in at ONLY 1815 grams this massive 22" plays like a THIN to MEDIUM THIN, VERY COMPLEX, DARK and Medium LOW PITCHED China Pang Swish Cymbal. 

And at only 1815 grams (this is a 22" mind you) this Mehmet China is responsive. I slight flick of the finger sets this 22" a rumblin'....
