I have a newer 20” HH China that is awesome. That is a great cymbal... The only Sabian that I own. I can’t find a comparable Zildjian except for maybe the oriental trash.I have a few ...
22" Agop Sultan China (paperthin) - This one is almost on the set, unless I'm doing a two-cymbal Bop setup. It's spectacular; I think the Agop Chinas are underappreciated. 95% Jazz, but occasionally a folky/Americana thing.
22" Paiste Sound Creation China - Well, it is what it is. Cool, but ... KAAAHLAAANGssssss. Rarely used.
18" Paiste 505 China - I haven't used it in 20 years. It's a freakin' loud, brash beast.
Another China (actually "Chinese") I had was an 80's 20" Sabian HH. It was fantastic. Very thin and oddly much thinner on one side than the other. It was wispy and smooth. Sounded exactly like Jack D's China sound from the mid-80's. It cracked, Sabian replaced it no questions asked, but the new one was a bit heavier and not quite as cool.
