China cymbals are used to create a distinctly bright and explosive tone, as they’re a specific type of Crash Cymbal as such. From the sound the cymbal produces, they are similar to a Chinese gong, hence the name of the cymbal.
The cymbal is ideal for many genres of music, for instance, heavy rock, metal, jazz and Latin. For most cases, they’re used for complex drum solo sequences. Their unique sound is created by the upturned edges and cylindrical bell on the cymbal and is often upside down on the cymbal stand for easier stick technique.
