      Comments about Meinl HCS Cymbal Pack with Free 14 Inch Crash:

      Got these for my wife who wants to learn drums. I'm bass player so I'm no expert, but have been around enough drums to know what they should sound like and these sound great. Keep in mind what you're paying and you won't be disappointed. I was expecting paper thin metals and trash can lid sound but these are way more than bargained for.

        Comments about Meinl HCS Cymbal Pack with Free 14 Inch Crash:

        If you want a good cymbal without the high price of Zildjians or Sabians, I would recommend Meinl cymbals. I've had both Zildjians and Sabians in the past, but these Meinls are very comparable to both. With a bright but warm sound, these cymbals will work for any musical style you wish to play.

              Wanted a cheap cymbal set for an open mic that I host, so I got this set. High hats and ride are decent, but the free 14" crash is total garbage. Hardly any crash sound, and what is there is completely overpowered by a lower overtone.

              They are ok, but not really for metal.

                Wouldn't recommend these for rock or metal. Hi hats sound fine and the ride too but the crash is high pitched and doesnt ring out.

                Comments about Meinl HCS Cymbal Pack with Free 14 Inch Crash:

                I've been using more expensive Meinl cymbals for years on my kits. I needed a cheap set for my sons birthday, as we were getting him his first kit. Even for such a low price, these Meinls did not disappoint. These are so much better built than the competition. The lower lines of the two other main brands are cheap and flimsy feeling, keyhole easily, and sound harsh. But these HCS cymbals are built much, much better. I HIGHLY recommend these for first cymbals, as you will get exponentially longer life from them than other brands at twice the price.
