Nice Washy sound, I personally wish it would ring a bit more. This Cymbal looks great and gets the job done.
The Quality as far as durability goes imo it's quite tough. I'm a hard hitter and I just ruin this thing and it's still like new.
Well this is the best part! A quality Entry/Intermediate cymbal for the cost of next to nothing. Cant go wrong here. For all other like cymbals this is the best by far imo.

Just wanted to add another Splash to the left wing of my Kit; Went with the 8 inch- it sounded best in the demo vid, and was dirt cheap; So this seemed easy and very affordable. I have to say im surprisingly disappointed with this cymbal. It had enough good reviews... but in my opinion, dont bother with this one, its pretty lifeless- I wasnt expecting miracles, but Ide rather have my cash back!

    Bought this for my son who is a passionate drummer that has been playing for the past year and a half. He loves this brand of cymbal and now has nine different cymbals in total of this brand. They have a great sound and durability. I would buy more of this brand in the future.

                I purchased this because I had experience using it on my friend's set, and because I had no money... I got it a few days ago and it sounds awesome, however it is fairly quiet compared to the rest of my set. It's a great value, and lasts long, however I had to mark off because of volume.

                Comments about Meinl HCS Splash Cymbal:

                Great practice cymbal, you can beat the hell out of it, and if it breaks you're only out few $. Use your good cymbals for gigs.
                Finish is alright, but looks a little cheap compared to Pro-level cymbals.
                For the money, this is fine. I use it on a miked up set that we record with and liten to through a mixer, headphones, etc. It has a good sound in this venue.

                I ordered the 12" splash for my Tama Kit and i love it. I thought i made a mistake ordering such a big splash but when i heard it i knew i made the right choice. It has a good cutting sound that provides the perfect accent for your rolls. This is my 8th Meinl cymbal and i have to say i have nothing but good things to say about Meinl cymbals

                I recently bought this splash, along with Zildian and Sabian splashes. This cymbal was better than both of them. I would reccomend thi cymbal to a begginner to Pro musicians.

                This cymbal is a good bright accent cymbal It will complement pretty much any set up (as long as its not the primary cymbal) and at a really good price. It could cut a little more, I really have to hit this thing in a larger venue but otherwise its a good product for the money.

                This cymbal is amazing! I got the 8" splash just to have a little something extra to play with and I don't regret it one bit. For the money, you honestly get more than what you pay for I think. It has sort of a trashy sound to it, but not overly trashy. I love this cymbal and will be using it for a while like for accents and stuff like that.

                Comments about Meinl HCS Splash Cymbal:

                I honestly don't see what everyone is complaining about. For twenty dollars(8 inch price) this isn't a bad splash at all. Granted, it's not the best like a top of the line Sabian, but it does the job for a hobbyist like myself.

                Comments about Meinl HCS Splash Cymbal:

                When I received this cymbal (I ordered the 10") I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised. It has a little echo, and the 'splash' sound isn't that sharp, but overall very good. It definatley gets its job done as a splash. For the cheap price, this cymbal is well worth it. I would say it is just as good as a Zildjian ZBT or a Sabian B8.

                Comments about Meinl HCS Splash Cymbal:

                I purchased the Meinl HCS Splash(8") because of the low price and was pleasantly surprised at the sound. It has a nice clean tone with a very quick decay. I have it mounted just above my hi hats and use it for fills and accents. It was my first Meinl cymbal. I was so impressed by the value and sound of this cymbal that shortly after purchasing it, I got Meinl's Byzance hi hats and ride cymbals.

                I have the 8 inch and this cymbal is not the greatest. It cracked after the first year i had it. I have the zildjian k custom hybird 11 inch splash and that one is alot better than this one. This splash cymbal sounds like a zildjian A 6 inch slpash except a little bit darker tone.
