OVERVIEW

Outfit your kit with a Meinl HCS-EFX stack!

This Meinl HCS-FX Effect Stack features an 10 splash and a 12 china that are ready for placement on your set along with a free stacker attachment that requires no extra stand to mount.

The powerful 12 HCS china gives you a cutting, quick, and trashy response that cracks through the music. Its light weight is an added bonus for keeping the cymbal balanced when placed on the bottom of the stack. The 10 HCS splash is great for quick accents and splash fills with its fast decay. It expands your sound and performs well with other Meinl HCS cymbals.

This stack delivers all of the comfort players look for when piggybacking cymbals. A free stacker puts 5-1/2 of clearance between the two cymbals, allowing you to move your sticks freely without catching one cymbal or the other by mistake. Simply thread the attachment on your existing cymbal stand until finger tight and it holds securely, even for the harder hitters. The end result is a ferocious, professional look with a variety of sonic alternatives.

      Nice cymbal set. Great things to add to your kit for some extra spice and flare. Both are pretty high pitch and have short sustain.

        Splash cymbal has great sound. The effect cymbal needs a little getting used to sound wise.

          Comments about Meinl HCS-FX Splash and China Cymbal Effect Stack with FREE Stacker:

          I was using it as a cymbal stack but I am currently using them separately. The 12" China sounds explosive and super responsive. The 10" Splash is very bright and tight. I would buy these both again. I do want to invest in a bigger size so I can stack them and make the sound more intense. Say like a 16" Crash and a 20" China Stack like Matt Halpern's set. I love Meinl Cymbal, for the price and quality, you cannot get a better cymbal.

            Comments about Meinl HCS-FX Splash and China Cymbal Effect Stack with FREE Stacker:

            I got rid of my x-hats this year and wanted to start using a stack. Bought these to use together like that and found the sound to be a bit flat. Not sloshy like the hats were. I inverted a ZilBell inside of it for an added effect. I did love the stacker stick as it allowed me to add a splash cymbal over the ride. Something I've wanted for a long while.

                Comments about Meinl HCS-FX Splash and China Cymbal Effect Stack with FREE Stacker:

                This package is great for the money. I really like the 12 inch china. The splash is pretty bright and sounds decent but it doesn't really cut through the mix if your hitting bigger cymbals on a louder part. Okay for quiet parts though. Overall its a good value and the included stacker may be useful down the road.

                        These Meinl cymbals are a great addition to a drum kit. The crash adds a pronounced sound to your cymbal collection. It definitely has a good trashy sound. The splash carries it's own when it comes to adding a strong attack and a quick decay. The stacker is an added bonus. And although I use the stacker to carry a different cymbal than the either one of these, it gives you an option for mounting your cymbals. And at the price - this package is very good. Well worth it.

                                    I stack the two together and I feel it has a very tight attack. Separately they have a very explosive feels to them. They are tiny but loud and both are very bright. I would buy these again but I would get a bigger set. If you are looking to get a nice stack like Matt Halpern's stack. Get a 16" Crash and put it in a 20" China. To me these sound better separate but when one of them breaks(which I hope isn't anytime son) I'm going to stack the again.
