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.

Not bad except for the crash

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....Read complete review

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.

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

        Needed a set of affordable cymbals for the vintage drum kit at my church. I tried these cymbals for the first time today, very pleased with the sound. The ride/crash is very bright and responsive, the 14" hats sound great. The "bonus" crash is a little too mid-tone for my taste, could be brighter but still serves the purpose well enough. Can't beat 'em at that price!

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

        Hats are incredible. The sounds I've always wanted. The 14" crash is like a heavy dark splash more than a crash. 18" ride/crash isn't spectacular at either role, but the bell is quick and chirpy. And the ride does have one specific sweet spot where the sound is bright and carries and isn't washed out. And that spot is dead-on the HCS logo. Well played. I'm still happy and excited about this purchase.

          I bought this cymbal pack after extensive research and reading over different different reviews and I am very happy with the purchase. These cymbals are constructed very well and have a nice sound. They more than serve their purpose as a cymbal set to a practice drum set, great for gigging as well. Excellent value, highly recommend.

            I bought these to accompany the free Pearl Cymbal that came with my Roadshow Drum set. They are a good sounding set of cymbals and are a decent price. The Hi-Hat is extremely better than the free ones from Pearl. I will be a Meinl fan forever!
