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.

      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.

          Comments about Meinl HCS Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair:

          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.

                  I'm a professional drummer with 40 years playing experience. I needed some low-cost hats for a practice setup. These were less expensive new than used B8's and ZHT ect. They are heavier than I was expecting, which is good. They feel ok and sound better than I was expecting. And they look really good. Works perfectly for what I'm using them for.

                    This Hi-hat is great for the price. I just replaced the Hi-hat that came with my set and the difference is miles apart. This Hi-Hat is great for begginers and is really nice for the price.
