    hmm, all i know is wuhan owns dream cymbals so their name should come up at some point. wuhan chinas seem pretty sweet and i haven't heard chinas from a lot of companies to be a total skeptic, but they seem very good to me.

    Pros: Nicely priced and if you find the right ones sound great for the cash.

    Cons: Quality control is all over the place. Never heard two sound alike. You really have to dig to find the right sound you are going for.

    I have an 18" Wuhan China, and I really like it as an accent in the right places. It's got a great gongy sound. RHD is right though, you do have to dig to get the right sound, because these cymbals are hand made, and no 2 cymbals sound alike. I would never buy a Wuhan cymbal without hearing it first, now that I know how widely the sound can vary. Having said that, I got my Wuhan China before I knew any better, and bought it online. I got very lucky!

    Very true RHD. I went into a local store looking for a 18" Wuhan china and tried every single one they had in 18"...didn't like either one of them...all sounded different. So I tried the 17's...nope...16's...nope. Ended up walking out with a 14" that was exactly the sound I was hoping for. But compared to the other 14's this one had a longer sustain and sounded like a larger diameter cymbal. I also have 8" and 10" S series splashes and I absolutely love them. Quick, glassy and transparent. But the selection process for those went like my china search.
    So I wouldn't quite call it a 'con' that they all sound different. It just adds to the uniqueness that is Wuhan. If you own one you know that it probably truly is a unique instrument!

    I bought a 22" Wuhan China, thinking bigger is better. That thing was a monster! You had to really hit it to get a decent sound out, and then it was LOUD!!!

    Luckily, I put an ad in a local forum offering a trade. A local metal drummer did a straight trade for a 16" Wuhan that I now absolutely love. It is mellow/ trashy-sounding, but doesn't take a full nelson to get vibrating. The metal guy is happy, because his band plays a dozen or so decibels above where I play.

    I have a little Wuhan 12", but I was the only one who liked how it sounded, so it is not on my kit anymore. (Plus, I was trying to pair down my number of cymbals.)
    And the trees are all kept equal by hatchet, axe, and saw. . .

    Yes, the 14" will decay faster, along with it's higher pitch. As MKennedy pointed out though, you have to listen to a few before making up your mind.

    Big Meow, I have a 12" Agazarian China (everyone says it is made by Wuhan), and I love the sound of it, especially when I play it in combination with a 12" Wuhan Splash. I realize it's not everyone's taste, but since I am not playing with anyone right now, who cares!

    I've pricing new hi-hats and I love the sound of the Zildijan K series lite hats, the problem
    is I dont love the price of $400. A guy at a small music store in town told me to check out Wuhan hi-hats. He said they sound great for 1/2 the cost. I'm looking for a lite crisp sound. Can anyone give me any info. as far as how good Wuhan hi-hats sound, thanks.

    The Wuhan HH cymbals are a lot less then half the price of K HH cymbals.

    There's a guy on E-bay that has a bunch of videos demonstrating the Wuhans.

    I can't speak for the these cymbals though.

    If you're looking for a good HH set for half the price of the K's the Dream cymbals seem to get pretty good reviews.

    True that! the price is the final straw for me. But I'm cheap. I do like the sound of the wuhans that Ive found very crisp and fast. I have yet to hear a pair of hats though. But for under a $100 how can it be worse than low end anything else?

    Hey guys, should I buy a 16" Wuhan Crash or an 18" Wuhan China? I sold the Paiste NuVader China I bought for $25 for $50 on craigslist (yippee) and now I have $50 to spend on a new cymbal. I need other people's opinions because from what i have seen on youtube, and from reading reviews, both sound really good, and I can't decide for myself. Any suggestions?
    So itchie, how did the kick sound?

    jordison, do you have a music store near you that sells the Wuhan Chinas? If not, buying them online would be a shot in the dark, because each cymbal can be so different. They each have their own individual sound. In general, the 18" would have a deeper sound than the 16". I say my 18" China has a gong-like sound.
