OVERVIEW

A cutting, biting accent for your sound.

This cymbal, designed by Meinl in cooperation with Thomas Lang, With a fast, sharp and sinister edge, these Meinl Filter chinas explode and then move out of the way for whatever lick might come next. They are quieter than most china cymbals, and have a short sustain due to the waved edge.

Meinl's Generation X Series offers a full range of special effect sounds previously not available. Years of input have led to the FX9 alloy and the unique shapes and configurations. Fast, explosive attack with quick decay make Gen X cymbals fit where other cymbals won't. Add a crazy new tone color to your setup today.

I got the 12 inch version and it sounds great. It provides an excellent swish. Although if you hit it hard enough, the cymbal will bend. Normally a cymbal bending would be a bad thing but this cymbal is easily reset back to its normal shape. Ive learned how to control its bending during a song in order to expand my drumming. It can bend in 2 ways and it gets more and more trashy each time. you can bend one side or the entire cymbal. It takes a special kind of person to play this cymbal. you have to keep and open mind if you want this cymbal on your kit. You can do a lot of different things with it. it is the most versatile cymbal i own. It is also am amazing stacker cymbal. I stack it with my splashes a lot and it gives a sound equivelant to Mike Portnoys max staxx. a lot cheaper too.

I received this cymbal when I bought a cymbal pack. I figured that it would sound like garbage seeing as how it was a "free giveaway," but I was pleasantly surprised. This cymbal had a really trashy, quick sound that it was awesome for accents. I played the cymbacl for about 5 months and through only 2 gigs and noticed a crack forming. I took the cymbal off and inspected it and found that there are at least 4 more hairline cracks forming...and all at the little crimped places at the end of the cymbal. I thought that these spots might turn weak....and I was COMPLETELY right. Very disappointed...not so much in the performance, but because I REALLY liked this cymbals sound.

By Deflorate676

Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

I bought the 8 inch filter about 8 months ago and it's still in perfect working condition. No cracks, no warping, and no bending. The sound is incredible and perfect for accenting. I mean, thats what it's made for right?It is a very thin cymbal so treat it like a thin cymbal. I play death metal and all that fun stuff, but I don't smash the thing. If you want it to last long, play it with care.Buy this and you won't be dissapointed!

    Love the sound but for a 12-inch it lacks a bit on big crash. I'm planning to purchase larger versions because As I've said I love the overall sound. Definitely worth the money.

        I actually received one of these as a bonus with a Meinl set I ordered. It is the 14". I honestly wasn't expecting much, but this thing is awesome! I've actually had mine for a few years now, but it's still in good shape. It would not be good as your main china, but it definitely has a super nice sound to add to your overall textures. I move mine around a bit, but I've got it on the left now, with a 20" extra dry china on the right. It's something special!

        Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

        This is a great accent cymbal I got the 8 inch and paired it with an 8 inch china splash. I might go to the 10 inch for a little more volume but this cymbal is exactly what I wanted for accenting in fills.

        Nice Sound

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

        I have to say, this cymbal deff has a unique sound to it and is a real attention getter, its like harnessing the sound of breaking glass, short but sweet sound, perfect for quick accents. The only downfall I found in this product is that after a while it starts cracking around the pre-drilled holes which causes it to pretty much lose its tone.

        Not worth it at all

        By Drummer3467

        from Springfield MA

        Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

        This cymbal sounds cool but is unable to break through if you play heavier music. This is also a very weak cymbal. It took about 6 months before cracks developed around the holes and before long it was in pieces. Like I said it sounds cool, but lasting for as long as it does isn't worth your money. Go with a Zildjian Oriental Trash if you want the same sound but a stronger cymbal.

        I have had this cymbal since it came out, however long that has been, and I has been hammered on it like a nail. No cracks or dents. Maybe I'm lucky, and I got one good one, out of a bunch of crap ones. Well I love the sound of this thing, and I could imagine since it is a china it wouldn't sound that different if it did get a crack.Oh did I mention that it is inexpenisve

        Epic Sound...Fairly Durable

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

        I got this cymbal with a meinl pack about 2 years ago. First off it sounds amazing and is loud enough to cut through both guitarists a bassist and vocalist. Mine has lasted about a year and a half before developing any cracks. I cut them out with some tin snips and it has still lasted six months. Great buy... great value. I have no complaints. And by the way the holes in no way make it weaker.
