Amazing Bell, That Is Cheap!

By Clay Webb

from Undisclosed

Comments about Meinl Classics Medium Bell Cymbal:

In all, this price, for an awesome cymbal is a no-brainer. Using it as an accent is where it is best suited I belive. I am recommending this bell to anyone looking for one, I think it is the best out there at the moment. You can mount it on top of another cymbal if needed also (If you don't have enough money for another stand. ) Besides Chris Adler plays this cymbal.
This bell is pretty awesome.Has a loud attackMedium sustainCan take a beating
Has the Meinl quality that you can trust.
I was surprised this cymbal was such a great price. It is worth every bit of it.

Greatest bell ever

By Alex-zxgfq

from CA

Comments about Meinl Classics Medium Bell Cymbal:

this bell is amazing, sounds infinitely better than a zil bell, and is half the price, this thing may seem it rings for too long but in the mix its perfect, i was jamming yesterday and hit it, it cut through what i was playing and the 2 guitarists using lots of distortion, this thing is much better and cheaper than a zil bell and could be used as a mini hi hat with an 8" splash

Awesome.

Comments about Meinl Classics Medium Bell Cymbal:

I can't wait to get my own. All three sizes have a lot of sustain but when it comes to performing with a group it's not a problem. They sound more musical than other bells I've played. They're much better than the clunky sounding zil-bells. And these are half the price of others. It's a win-win situation!

All around amazing...

By justamea

from Illinois

Comments about Meinl Classics Medium Bell Cymbal:

All around amazing, it sounds great compared to other way more exspensive bells, and very flexible. Some other reviews complain about the ring length, i personlly like it more that way. Very clean and atractive sound.

      Sounds Great For the $$$

      By Drummerboyshoe

      from Norfolk, NE

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Meinl Classics Medium Bell Cymbal:

      After reading the reviews about this and the zil-bel I decided to go with this instead. Boy was I glad! This cymbal has a pitch that's hard to exactly point out, but it's a pitch that blends with anything that your playing. It does have a longer ring to it, and if it annoys then stick a moon-gel on it (it seems to work better if you put it right below the rim) Go out and buy one of these!

      Meinl Classics 8

      By GrinningMouths

      from Agamemnon, VA

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Meinl Classics Medium Bell Cymbal:

      This bell is amazing. I was originally turned onto Meinl cymbals by Chris Adler (Lamb of God), and I always really loved his bell sound on Ashes of the Wake, Sacrament, and Wrath. I picked this bell up from a music store and it blends beautifully with my 6.5" Zildjian Zil-Bel. I actually prefer the Meinl to the Zildjian: it is much more musical and complex sounding, whereas the Zil-Bel is more like a cup chime and very straight forward.Excellent bell, I will be buying from Meinl again soon! Pick yours up today!

      The Bell Cymbal

      By ForemityDrummer

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Meinl Classics Medium Bell Cymbal:

      This thing is awesome to play on. It is great before or during hardcore breakdowns and is also good for just whenever. It has a higher pitch than normal and it sustains but my friends like the sound of it. 100% worth what I paid for.

      Goodbye Zil-Bel

      By TamaMeinlAxisFTW

      from Bay Area, CA

      Comments about Meinl Classics Medium Bell Cymbal:

      This cymbal is great for metal, hardcore, and anything of that sort. it cuts through my meinl byzance crash, Sabian AA crash, and even my 20" Meinl MB20 China. It's much better than a zil-bel or alu bell. and it's half the price. i highly recommend it.

            This cymbal is awesome!! It has a very distinctive ping souns. My ride cymbal bell is ok but i mounted this bell on it and it is amazing! I use it for a lot of metal like August BUrns Red but works for any genre. Adds a nice flavor and color to my kit.

            Meinl medium bell blends well like stated

            By InstrumentofTool8

            from PA.

            Comments about Meinl Classics Medium Bell Cymbal:

            I've had the Meinl Medium bell for over 6 months to a year now and it's great. This type of bell fits into the cup/bell chime catagory rather that the "ICE BELL" catagory which the Powerfull Meinl bell would be similar to, I don't know about the low bell but, I'd say it fits into a "humming/fuzz/frequency" effect. The meinl medium bell goes together with the Paiste cup chimes in that they both "SPREAD" their sounds surprising well, allowing for both soft and loud accents. Ice bells make a more cutting and cool sound (Sabian Ice bells, LP Ice bells, Stagg, etc.) The medium bell can be played by striking the rim top or bottom, by playing the outside of the "bowl", or by quickly striking the inside of the bowl with the tip of the drumstick, this creates the most chimey and bright "sweet" sound.Decent price with positive uses for excellerating the journey through percussion.
