Hey all. First time poster here.
I got a question about my china cymbal. I've got an 18" Paiste that sounds more like a gong than the quick "splashy" sounds I hear when listening to other drummers. Does this have to do with the fact that its a bigger cymbal? I would assume so anyway but I don't know much about chinas.
Is there anyway to either tighten the cymbal up or dampen it to get that sound, or would it be better to just invest in a smaller cymbal?
