      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:

        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.

                            I'm not a drummer per se, so I want to put that out there first. I am a bass player who has a drum kit for working out grooves and for fun. I can't speak with the drummer lingo like: it has a good chick... etc, but I have played with phenomenal drummers over the years and have heard some great sounding hats. Theses are great for someone in my situation or one similar (beginner, school kit, back up, etc.). I gave them a four just because they're not the best cymbals in the percussion department, but for the money I paid and how I've used them so far, they get the job done well. Having played them for a while now, if I could go back in time I'd still buy them (I paid about 60).
