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:

    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!

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

            I originally purchased for church kit. But, I share the church kit with a more experienced drummer who took the liberty of adding even more cymbals, etc. So, instead of returning them, I opted to keep them for my practice set at home. I am glad I did! I love them. I my opinion, they have really upgraded the sound of my kit.

                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.

                  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.

                    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.
