The Linear Smash is a brilliant finish Wuhan traditional style with holes that have been professionally stamped out of the metal. The holes give the cymbal a Loud, Explosive FX Sound! These cymbals are hand made entirely from B20 bronze; cast, hammered, lathed and buffed to a brilliant finish by hand. The B20 bronze is considered to be the premium alloy of all cymbal making. These cymbals have superior tonal qualities and sound characteristics.
For over 1900 years Wuhan has made cast, hand-hammered cymbals in China. In fact, the Chinese have been credited with inventing the cymbal for use as a musical instrument. Wuhan is well known for their china and gong cymbals. However many people don't realize that they also produce an excellent line of professional quality cymbals.
Wuhan linear smash 19"
I'm totally happy with the purchase! The 19in Wuhan Linear Smash Crash has the sustained that I'm looking for without having to hit my 20" Wuhan China. The reason why I got the linear smash crash ...I used an 18in on recording sessiosn, and it was my favorite cymbal to hit. I wanted a little bit more sustained. The 19 in definitely gives you that. I could also use it as a crash ride if I'm doing jazz, fusion, or small gigs when I do not want to take my large cymbals. The customer service has been exceptional! I look forward to ordering again from this company.
