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.

      Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

      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!

      Awesome cymbal

      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.

      Not what I was looking for

      By Kevin Marcolini

      from Illinois

      Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

      Overall I am very disappointed in this cymbal. I should have just spent the extra money and went with a 10" hand hammered china kang.
      The bell of the cymbal is way too small. I bought it to stack on top of a splash but due to the size of the small bell, the cymbals do not even touch eachother.
      I also do not like the thickness of the cymbal. It is much thicker than I expected.
      There are other brands that make better quality cymbals at mch better prices.

      Sounds great!

      By Nocktis

      from Missoula, MT

      Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

      I'm not sure why people are saying this cymbal has a hard time cutting though, my only guess is they must be super soft hitters.
      I just used this thing at an outdoor show and it had no problem cutting though. I play in a band with 2 drummers and this cymbal was able to cut through the other kit and the guitars with no problem. It has a short attack but is super bright and trashy. This cymbal sounds great. This is my first Meinl cymbal and I'm very impressed.

      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.

      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.

      incredible

      By Deflorate676

      from Lake Worth, FL

      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!

      I got this cymbal about a month ago. This china is beast. It deff. punched through everything. but i noticed it was really thin, and would probably crack... and it did. but it was worth it. i had it long enough to record my bands demo album... myspace.com/ofelsewhere. &#982. haha. its a great cymbal, but doesn't last long.
