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:

      These were recommended by my sons drum instructor so we bought these for my son as a Christmas gift and I have to admit that these are very impressive. From the first ring to the last these are very astounding with their tone. I was expecting a lesser quality cymbal for the price but with him rapping on these like he does he has yet to chip or even show any sign of any type of wear the cheaper ones have shown in such little use. I'm very impressed with them with over all quality, performance and sound! I will definitely be buying more MEINL products in the future.

        These Meinl Cymbals are of a great value. They are extremely affordable and does the job just as good as many cymbals that cost much more. Great playability and reliability at the fraction of the cost of other high-end cymbals. Go out and get yourself some of these cymbals today! You won't regret it.

          These cymbals aren't amazing, but for the price you can't really beat what they are. I teach lessons and when I need to recommend a starter pack for my students, this is what I always recommend. If you're building a beginner's first drum kit, this is a great budget cymbal set for them.

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

              I'm a guitar player, but I've known some picky drummers who would bring everything they own to a store, and try cymbals out, to buy matched stuff. Cymbals seemed out of tune to each other (not matched set) played alone, but when hit as hard as you really play in a song, they sound good. Good sound for the price. The more we play them, the better they sound. We are happy.

                These cymbals give me the full crash sounds I need to play any type of music. They don't ring forever so I don't have to worry about muffling them with my hands. The Hi-hat isn't the best quality but sounds and works fine for playing in a small band doing cover tunes. Great value for the price!

                      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!

                      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.
