View Full Version : Paiste 802 China

I recently bought a Sabian 16" Pro Sonix china,
but then I looked on the Paiste website and all
their china's are medium heavy while the pro sonix
is thin. I like to ride on the china but I did not won't
to do that with the pro sonix, but I think i'll sell the
Sabian and buy a Paiste 802 16" china.

Does anyone have a 802 16" china if so is it a good sound?:rolleyes:

You should have no problem riding the pro sonix china. Even though it is labeled "thin", you are generally not riding on the edge of the cymbal, so it could still last you a long time.

I'd say go for Paiste. 502, 802, Alpha are all good chinas on budget. Mmmmm...soooo gooood. And more durable too, thicker.
As the matter of fact I like the sound of 502 better than Zildjian china trash. Paistes are trashier and more explosive.
Yeah, go for Paiste.

the 802 is very good. Paiste made its name in rock with hard hitters, so you can be assured that their crap lasts a long time. Go for the 802.

I have one, it sounds great. Very sharp attack and long decay.

I broke a stick and it's tip on my 802 china and there wasn't even a minor dent on it. Says something.

It was a 2B stick as well. Think about it.
