I have bought several Mienl symbols which I was very happy with. But, comparing it to my old Planet Z Zildjian 14" Hi-Hat I would have to go with the Zildjian brand. Still a great sound for the price no doubt! I think it's pretty cool the Mienl is sending me a free Ching Ring for my review.

amazing cymbal for an amazing price. :3

By Dillon Mulvihill

from calvert city, kentucky

Comments about Meinl HCS Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

i just got this cymbal in the mail yesterday. my first impression was, "wow, this thing is very expensive and heavy feeling." i had been using stock hi hats before this and these were definitely an amazing change. i got the 14 inch, and i am absolutely in love with it. it has a very clean, clear, crisp sound that i absolutely love. i recommend these to any drummer who is on a budget, as well as anyone who is just looking for an amazing cymbal. i will definitely be buying this brand of cymbal from now on.

Great for any style of rock

Comments about Meinl HCS Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

I practice and cover A Day To Remember, Slipknot, and Avenged Sevenfold the most. If you set them right you can get an amazing sound for any type of music. A pretty good chick sound when closed and a beautiful sizzle when opened just right. I personally like mine open quite a bit to get a long sizzle. In my opinion these sound better in heavy metal songs but not too band in punk either. For about bucks..I'm happy.

Good Starters for the price

Comments about Meinl HCS Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

Recently ordered a pair of the 13" hats for a student of mine to replace the flimsy pieces of junk that came with her starter set. Had never heard them, but chose them on the basis of the reviews here. I was pleasantly surprised. While they certainly aren't adequate for professional use, they sound pretty decent and are a good budget choice for someone starting out. They blow away the ZBT's in the same price range.

Comments about Meinl HCS Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

These cymbals are not bad at all. When I first bought my Tama Imperialstar, it came with these hi-hats as well as accompany ride and crash. Being a novice at the time I was extremely happy with what I had. But after more experience and looking around, yes there are a lot better hi-hats.

But these are great for beginners or something to hold you off till you can afford cheaper.

I have a set of 14" hi-hats and they're really bright sounding, but you don't get that nice sizzle you would from a Zildjian New Beat or Sabian. I don't mind them as they're well priced and heavy so they won't crack.

I'm currently ordering at 13" pair of these to have a side hi-hat. As I said, these are great if you're on a budget or a beginner. You don't want to buy a $300 hi-hat only to be disappointed in it. Try before you buy, or get these to hold you off.

          Very good pair of cymbals. They have a very bright sound and responsive feel. I have had many hi hats and this is one of my favorites for its price. $$$ I recommend these for beginners but if ur on a low budget they will work very well!

              Comments about Meinl HCS Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

              I got these hi-hats a while ago and they blew me away. The overall sizzle when slightly open, and the accent when closed really surprised me. I wasn't expecting something as good of quality when I bought the hi-hats. If you are looking for a good set of hats and you don't want to spend a lot of money, these are a good choice.

              This is a great product for the money - I read a lot of reviews about this hi-hat and was hesitant to buy it - but I am very happy with the sound - I would recommend this product for acoustic or small club use - not for heavy sounds
