18"

Here's a PERFECT CHINA IF YOU DIG THAT TRULY EXOTIC AND COMPLEX TONE!! 

AND A RARE ONE AT THAT!!! It's DAMN NEAR hard to find THE 18"!! 

AND it HASN'T BEEN PRODUCED IN YEARS!! 

These 18" Chinas were VERY different than all other Zildjian Chinas. It's the best one they made. 

Ironically this is the true TRASHY China!! And this one is the FULLEST sounding one I have ever heard. It really projects. 

Posted for your immense pleasure is this lovely Top of the Line and Discontinued very complex and FULL sounding  Zildjian 18" ORIENTAL CLASSIC China Cymbal that is in TERRIFIC Condition! Check out the pictures! I am thrilled to report that there are 

NO

nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on this 18" Huge Flanged CHINA. It's in GREAT SHAPE with a nice patina that has begun to gro. .

Zildjian described this cymbal as:

"Unique among Zildjian China cymbals. Features a dramatic, swooping and very broad upturned lip in a truly authentic, original Chinese fashion. Together with a unique hammering technique and thin taper, the Classic Chinas produce a fabulous, explosive "China" sound with richness and full-bodied, yet trashy overtones."

And that's accurate. However, I would have to say that THIS model should be called the "China Trash," not the other more focused Oriental China that Zildjian produces. This 18" is considerably trashier than all other Zildjian Chinas. 

This particular 18" is much more complex and FULL than some of the other 18" Classic Chinas I have encountered, and it cuts exceptionally well. 

 

Weighing in at a wonderfully Medium Thin to Medium 1405 grams, this Zildjian plays like a great Medium Thin to Medium fairly complex CHINA. The tone is semi-dark and very COMPLEX with a broad spread, compliments of the  Hyper Flanged Lip. The sustain is LOOOOOOOOOOoooooong. And this 18" Classic China is very responsive but still will cut nicely through a mix...it plays a bit more like a Medium as far as the series goes. 

Overall, this is an EXOTIC sounding Cymbal....especially coming from Zildjian, who generally keep to the well worn path. 

Compared to the Zildjian Oriental Trash China, this one has a much longer sustain, and projects the best of any I've heard, has more overtones, and is more musical in low volume to medium loud settings.

You can use this discontinued Exotic Zildjian 18" CLASSIC China for whatever your heart's desire. Its medium dark and complex vibe makes it the perfect choice to jazz, blues, ballads, soul, and funk and fusion. And it STILL projects well is rock, pop, country and LIVE. 

AND THIS CLASSIC CHINA IS NO LONGER MADE and was harder time find when it was being made.

AND THIS ONE IS IN TERRIFIC CONDITION!!

And it's the ELUSIVE 18". 

So do yourself a favor and grab this DISCONTINUED 1405 gram complex and FULL Zildjian 18" Oriental CLASSIC China.
