Wuhan - Carmine Appice's 17" China Cymbal, The First!! (#1)

From the Carmine Appice Collection at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault in Seattle, WA. 

It’s impossible to adequately describe Carmine’s massive impact on the drum world. He redefined rock drumming with his innovative playing with Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Beck Bogart and Appice, Rod Stewart, Ozzy Osborne, Edgar Winter, Ted Nugent and more. He literally “wrote the book” on rock drumming with his “Realistic Rock” drum method, the best selling rock drum book of all time. He introduced the rock drum world to China cymbals and gongs that are now commonplace on the modern drum set. Carmine is without a doubt, one of the most influential and innovative drummers of our time.

We've just acquired a huge collection of drum gear directly from Carmine Appice. This is just one piece of the collection currently available here at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault.

With two China cymbals mounted prominently high above the front of his monstrous set, Carmine can be credited with single handedly popularizing China cymbals, making them standard equipment on the modern drum set. This 17" WuHan was Carmine's first China cymbal and the one that started it all. When a small crack appeared in his prized cymbal, Carmine attempted to stop the crack by drilling holes at the ends of the crack. When it became obvious the crack could not be stopped, the cymbal was retired, beginning Carmine's lifelong pursuit of the perfect replacement. Hand signed by Carmine Appice. The cymbal measures closer to 17.5 inches. Shows clear signs of use. Includes a COA signed by Carmine Appice.
