Chinese style cymbals, so named for their origin, feature an edge area that has a curvature opposite to the curvature of the main surface. The edge is curved upward, so that often the cymbal is mounted upside down for easier playing. Paiste also features «Novo» chinas, with a downward turned edge, so that the bell of the cymbal can also be used. Chinas can be used for crashing or in larger sizes for riding. They are very versatile cymbals with a generally coarse, complex frequency mix, which is often thought of as exotic, oriental and trashy. For simplcity's sake, «Swish» is just another name for this type of cymbal.
