Good Stuff

Comments about Meinl Classics Powerful Crash Cymbal:

These are great for any drummer who is both just starting out or gigging out in clubs.
In this crazy OVERPRICED economy it's hard for a working class Drummer in the trenches to get a break.I played Zildjian,Paiste,Sabian and now Meinl. These mid range priced Powerful Crashes are perfect for any Club Drummer.
Good looks,Good Sound.If I put a 30 dollar bottle of Wine on the table and a 10 dollar bottle most people could not tell the difference.Same goes for these Classics.Why spend 300 when you can get the job done for less than half that.
good priced,good quality wont break the bank!

Inmortal Cymbal

Comments about Meinl Classics Powerful Crash Cymbal:

This cymbal is amazing i bought 2 of them, both 18" and let me tell you these cymbals take a good beating i hit really hard sometimes and they don't seem to crack and i don't think they will in a really long time. At first i didn't like too much the sound because they have like a dark sound but after a week of intense playing i started to like the sound and outdoors they are really awesome, they cut easily through the music. And this cymbal has made me to buy just Meinl Cymbals, i used to swear Zildjian was the best but now that i know these cymbals i won't go back to those pieces of cheap metal. I will eventually get the Classics Powerful Soundwave hi hat since i heard they are amazing and way better than all the other cymbals in the same price range.

Don't buy it.

Comments about Meinl Classics Powerful Crash Cymbal:

I special ordered this cymbal from Guitar Center and was extremely excited to get it home. What a mistake I made. I put right back in the bag after playing it for five minutes. I am by no means a pro drummer, but I've been playing for about 5 months, and have been a guitarist for for 5 years, and I know good instrument tone when I hear it. This cymbal has AWFUL tone for a crash cymbal. I have Zildjian ZBT's and they have a bright, clear, defined tone when I hit them. This cymbal sounded like my 20" ride, not a crash. I am extremely disapointed in this product. Do yourself a favor, BUY ZILDJIAN!!!!!!!!

Comments about Meinl Classics Powerful Crash Cymbal:

For the price there just isn't a better cymal. It's close to price range of the Zildjian ZHT but I prefer this cymbal by far. if cash is tight and you cant afford the Byzance or one of the Mb series, buy this crash.

Great sound @ a great price

Comments about Meinl Classics Powerful Crash Cymbal:

I switched from Zildjian to Meinl over a year ago cause I kept cracking Zildjians. I have a 17" powerful crash for over a year now and it sounds great, takes a good beating and is still crack free. I can say all of my Meinl "Classics" such as my chinas and hi-hats are lasting a lot longer. No cracks in any of them!

Comments about Meinl Classics Powerful Crash Cymbal:

i'd have to say that threw the last couple years cymbals were the hardest things to replace. Now this cymbal is makin me switch from zildjian to meinl. They're loud enough and have much better effects to choose from. they also hold up hella better then zildjian even tho they do sound quite awesome they like to shadder. Meinl cymbals also best from metal.
