    I use this product for practicing because I am starting to get into drums and learn more about them. I love this pack because you get a lot for the great price and you get a bunch of different sounding cymbals to make different sounds on the kit.

        No cymbal out there is going to give you this variety for this price. And each cymbal complements the other as you go from one to next. Each cymbal does what it's supposed to do - they have a nice cut-through attack with sizzle in the middle. No complaints on the pings of the rings. This is a nice graduation beyond the typical 3-cymbal pack. Thank you Meinl.

        Comments about Meinl HCS-SCS1 Ultimate Complete Cymbal Set Pack with FREE 16-Inch Trash Crash:

        To be clear, Meinl offers truly incredible upper range, higher quality cymbals than the HCS series.... That being said, a Byzance medium hi-hats will set you back a cool 500 ALONE. So for the size of this kit and the overall quality, THIS is one heck of a deal. And it never hurts to have a million cymbals lying around. The only drawback that I've found is the fact that you really have to wail on the crashes to get them to really "crash" because they're quite a bit thicker than the higher end cymbals.... but again... price. You won't be signing a high end studio recording gig anytime soon with these particular cymbals but they are so worth the money for the average gigging drummer who doesn't want to destroy their Byzance kit during practice at the band's jam space.
