Wuhan thin crashes are ultra-responsive, light, and airy. This makes them perfect for low-volume live situations as well as for recording. The 16" Wuhan thin crashes are a great hybrid between a soft crash and a loud splash. Each Wuhan crash cymbal is cast from high quality B20 alloy then carefully hand hammered and lathed before receiving a striking brilliant finish. At these prices, most cymbals are made from cheap sheet material, but the Wuhan Traditional crash cymbals are cast from the same B20 alloy used in many of today's high end cymbals. You will not find better quality or nicer sounding cymbals at this price level.
