I am a professional drummer with 30+ years experience. My cymbals are Zildjian and Paiste. I bought this set mainly for the 13" hats for my practice kit and I figured getting another couple of cymbals in this pack instead of just the hi hats was worth a try - I'm reasonably impressed. The hats are bright with a decent chick sound and are not particularly loud, which I like. The 14" crash is bright with a fast decay but also has a lower harmonic which sticks out and isn't very pretty on it's own, I doubt it would be apparent in a gig environment, tho. It sounds like a medium instead of a thin - a thin would have been better, I think. The splash is pretty good, fast, loud, quick and bright - its a useful addition. The ProMark sticks are the size that I use and I don't particularly need beginner's drum lessons so 1 of 2 of those add ons is a pretty good score. These would be a good starter cymbal pack, add a ride and you're all set. If you remember that these are not top shelf cymbals (without the top shelf price tag) you will like them, I think. I feel perfectly happy with the purchase and would recommend them for a beginning drummer or for a practice set.

Decent Hats -- weak crash but good overall value

I was impressed with the 13 inch hats but the crash sounds brassy.

    Comments about Meinl HCS Cymbal Pack with FREE Splash, Sticks, and Lessons:

    Just getting back into drumming after a 27 year lay off. I knew I wanted Meinl due to a past drummer using the brand and how good they sounded. The truth be told, I did not want to spend a lot of money just in case I did not stick with it (my main instrument is guitar). I was presently surprised how good they sounded vs what they cost. Very crisp with nice projection. They are very versatile also. They are a million times better than the cymbals that came with my used Premier drum set. A lot of value for what you pay. I am already having a blast relearning to drum.

                These are excellent cymbals to have when starting out. They offer just enough to get creative and still sound good for anyone on a budget too. You might still want to look into getting a ride to go with it.

                      I recently lost most of my hardware and ALL of my Zildjian cymbals after playing a show in Monterey, Ca. After the heart-break, as i lost $6000.00 of Zildjian A's ad D.W. hardware, with only 10 days to the next show, in desperation i ordered the HCS cymbal pack as i needed a splash and crash. It was a gamble that paid off with great results. They sound great Mic'ed and have a good solid feel upon contact, the 13's as high hats? Good for a practice kit. All in all.......can't beat it for the price.
