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

      I see so many people knocking the hcs line, saying they have a very ice and brittle tone. These cymbals are fine for what we pay. They stand out well in the mix, they have been durable for the few months we have had them, but they may change. We do have the warranty on them so if anything does breK we have that. The set itself was a steal. Nine cymbals, ten if you separate the hi hats for so cheap. It was so much we had to buy more stands! Our drummer has so many options, and each cymbal really compliments the other. The best thing about a matched set is they are made to compliment each other. This set is great for someone who wants a great deal without taking out a loan.

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

        Was kinda not sure about these from the price. After receiving the cymbals set and setting them up. I was impressed, they have a nice feel to them and a super nice bright finish, A+ there. Very shinny. I have been drumming for over ten years now and these are my 4th set of cymbals and i love them. I just want to play more now that i have my new set. Haven't found a better complete set for the price. I would recommend these to any style of drumming, I play heavy metal and rock.

            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.

                      I have been playing a little over 2 years and this is my 3rd set of cymbals. They have a nice crisp ring and are a nice quality for a good value. It is a large set for a reasonable price.

                            Probably the best cymbals on the market, for the price. This set in particular has a fantastic range of sizes and types, and Meinl's quality - even for their entry-level gear - is a step full step above entry level. The biggest problem I have had with this cymbal set is figuring out how to mount it all on my kit. The 16" trash crash has a much deeper and more powerful crash than I expected. The china is little more gong-ey than I would like, but a little extra felt under the wingnut really tones that down and gives it a quicker decay, bringing it more in line with the rest of the set, with more of a wash. The hi hats are pretty standard fare, as is the ride, but adding the 14" and 18" crashes to the 16" I was already used to is pretty awesome - ending consecutive rolls with a different crash gives a little more movement to songs. I wasn't really after the splash and dome, but they're actually a nice addition.

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.

                                          Cannot say enough. This is a HUGE set of real quality brass for a great price. Always loved meinl but could never afford it. This is perfect.
