Groovy???

Comments about Meinl Classics China Cymbal:

For the money...This little cymbal is great. Bought the 14" as a side accent. Beat it all to hell and still sounds good. Not like a big china but for a 14" it does its job. Don't listen to the above tools...Hit this one hard and it sounds good!

Comments about Meinl Classics China Cymbal:

Overall if you want a good china and your in a hurry to get one get this one! You will not regret it one bit!I recomend this to EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this cymbal and how it sounds! It isn't very dark but I got the 14in so its gonna be higher pitched. But It is pretty darn trashy if you ask me!
The quality is outstanding!! Ive had this for about 4 years no dents and I'm a hard hitter on cymbals! I sounds amazing too.
Value is awsome, I love meinl cymbals and in NO way do I think that they are over priced one bit!

second-hand treasure

By The Dirty One

Comments about Meinl Classics China Cymbal:

Just picked up a 16" in the used bin at my local CA House music store. I didn't hit it with any sticks in the store, just my hand - but it had the kind of wash and ring to it that you just know...this is gonna punch you in the face when you get it set up. And it does. It's late, so I'm not able to play right now, but I hit it a few times during placement to make sure it was in a natural position and it has sizzle to die for. I highly reccomend this!
Medium dark tone, lots of punch and sizzle
Bought a used one, and it seems to have taken quite a beating yet I can tell it has many years of enjoyment left.
Very good buy for the money!

Comments about Meinl Classics China Cymbal:

Well i purchased this cymbal from a locla dealer. When i went to try it out everything sounded fine, but the next day when i was playing with my band it inverted to an almost perfect 16" crash. naturally the sound quality was not the best. But it bent back just fine. I would reccomend this for a temporary item

im not a china person but i like it

By paraderest

Comments about Meinl Classics China Cymbal:

First china ever. I'm not that into china but found it had the perfect agressive sound I would need. I used it upside down and put quite a bit of abuse ito in and it the past 6 months there has been no damage. For the price I paid I feel lucky.

not worth it

By MeinlClassicschinaSucks24

from Columbus ,ohio

Comments about Meinl Classics China Cymbal:

i bought the 14 inch, i didn't get the quality or sound a wanted. its not very dark or trashy either, it's more like an obnoxious ringing, similar to sabian alu bells. It's B8 quality and scratches easily.Trust me.
