An affordable crash made from the same B20 alloy as many high-end cymbals.
The small sizes and medium-thin weight of these Wuhan crash provide an excellent balance of quick, explosive response and rapid decay. This balance of characteristics makes them perfect for adding crisp accents to musical passages.
The best crash cymbals money can buy? No.
The best crash cymbals so little money can buy? Absolutely.
Wuhan cymbals don't presume to challenge the sound quality, variety, or reputations of the fine professional-level cymbals on today's market. But when it comes to being affordable, that's another story.
Generally, "affordable" cymbals are made of less-expensive sheet alloys, using shortcut manufacturing methods and finishing steps in order to keep the cost down. With the resulting cymbals, you pretty much get what you pay for.
Wuhan cymbals are made of high-quality, cast B20 alloy. Handcrafted in China according to two-thousand-year-old traditional methods, this crash cymbal is buffed to a brilliant finish, and stamped with an unobtrusive but attractive logo.
An affordable, good-sounding alternative crash.

Comments about Wuhan Crash Cymbal:
I've been playing drums for 18 years but I've never been able to afford the nicer things for my personal kit. I play in the gospel world and I've been guest drummer to several very large congregations whose drummers are used to DWs and Zildjian's. Or top of the line Sonar coupled with Sabian AAX/HHX. I know what quality sounds and feels like. But when it came to my set at home I stuck with the entry level B8, B8pro, Meinl HCS, Zildjian ZBT....so on. I'd heard of Wuahn's legendary china's and thought to myself, "If I get a chance to pick up one of these babies, I'm gonna." Well I had that chance and I picked up one of the 14". I also picked up a set of these amazing Hi-hats. These beat out my Sabian B8 and B8 pro, my Zildjian ZBT and Semitars, and my Meinl HCS. The superior B20 bronze instantly shines out and cuts through! Even though I play in churches and with gospel musicians I myself would be classified as straight-up Rock n' Roll!!! I enjoy learning everything from All American Rejects and Paramore, to Coldplay and Counting Crows, and Flying Colors and Dave Matthews Band note-for-note. This crash is superior! A bit thin compared to my Sabian B8 pro that is right next to it. However When played in tandem with the heavier crash the sound is wonderful. I'm from the rock n' roll school of thought that if you need to crash you might as well use both hands if you can. It really compensates and adds a flavor to the cymbals around it quite well. An when I strike my cymbals sepretly and in order during a lick, (example: 16" rock crash (Sabian B8 pro), 16" Wuahn crash, 18" wuhan crash, then 14" wuhan China) the 16" Wuhan fills the gap just like it was designed to do. This would not be the crash I'd choose if I could only have one on my kit. But it would be the second if I could only choose two. I'm going to have this cymbal until it falls apart. Then I'll probably buy more of its kind to replace it. If you have the cash of a beginner but the level of talent and experience of intermediate/semi-pro you will not go wrong with these imported works of musical art.
