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.

      Comments about Meinl HCS Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

      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

        • School Bands

        Comments about Meinl HCS Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

        I am a general music teacher who has been ordering Meinl world percussion products for 6 years; I've always been happy with the quality, durability, and reasonable prices. I now teach modern band with middle school as well, and it was time to start upgrading my cymbals.

        As with all of the many Meinl products I've bought over the years, I was not disappointed. Nice sound and responsiveness - not being a drummer by trade, I don't have much to compare them to, but the drummer in my band loves them. As a novice drummer myself, I can definitely say that they are a huge upgrade from my old hi-hat.

            Bought these for the practice kit, then needed them for a show, and they held up just fine. They are a bit "clangy", but if you know what you're doing, or you're just starting these cymbals are great for the price!

                Nice set of inexpensive hi-hats. Very nice sound with great "bark" to them. For the money, can't be beat. I have always wanted to try 13" hats and these were a great choice.

                    I've been playing drums for a while, but this is my first official hi hat gift to myself. A friend recommended these things. They sound great, especially for the price. Crispy, bright, nice sizzle and attack. Great for most styles of music. Sound as fresh as anything I've played before. Look very sharp as well. Would definitely recommend.

                        I bought a drum kit for my son at a garage sale and the hi-hat was terrible. I bought this one not knowing what to expect and it sounds like a genuine drum kit now! Really great sounding cymbal.
