        In my opinion Meinl hit the nail on the head with the HCS line. This "entry level" cymbal set is most certainly a good buy. For the price you can't go wrong.

          Comments about Meinl HCS Super Cymbal Pack:

          I was shopping around for cymbals to buy that would be just for shows as well as studio. A lot of options I was looking at had me ordering certain cymbals separate and being a bit more costly. Then, I came across this pack that came with every size cymbal that I am currently using. After some research, video watching, as well as getting to test them out myself, I invested. So far I have used these on stage twice and they've been great for me. I'm also very picky about how my china should sound, but this china did not disappoint me. I play in an Industrial Rock/Metal band and a lot of the beats I do are ranged from Metal/Rock/Punk. Also, I usually play wooden tips, but after buying these cymbals I decided to see how they'd sound with a nylon tip. I've decided to start playing nylon tips, because of how great it sounded on these cymbals.

          Solid Value

                Comments about Meinl HCS Super Cymbal Pack:

                I recently got back into drumming. I'm value conscious, I wanted a lot of options to experiment with and didn't want to spend a lot of time hunting for used bargains.

                Meinl HCS made entry level sound better than expected. You do need to be realistic and understand what you are getting. IMO HCS is a starter/practice/backup/hobby line.

                You can't expect to professionally record or gig with most of the HCS line, but overall the sound is good for the money spent, especially if you buy the super or ultimate pack on sale. Some pieces don't sound great, but others sound surprisingly good! I sold what I didn't like and found other inexpensive HCS pieces that are acceptable. I can't comment on durabilty, because I haven't had them long, but none have folded in the last month of use.

                Yes, you can find better deals on used higher quality cymbals, but if time is an issue or you just want a lot of pieces to experiment with for not much money, HCS super pack is a great option. If you need to record or gig, you will need to find your signature sound higher up the scale. I will replace these with my dream cymbals slowly.

                  A very bright sound that cuts through the mix. Not much sustain, but for our context (smaller venue), that makes for much less noise. Can't speak to longevity as we've only had these a couple weeks, but hopefully they'll last. Really seems a great deal for the price.

                  Comments about Meinl HCS Super Cymbal Pack:

                  These cymbals are not only inexpensive but of high quality. The coating on them does chip a bit, and the wear is easily shown, but they are heavy duty and built to last for a very long time. I play hard rock/heavy metal, and there's no denting, cracking, or anything like that on them. They are very responsive and sound awesome, especially if you're a loud player (Jazz musicians will admire the ride cymbal which has a nice bell to it). I highly recommend.

                    right out of the box, these cymbals sound surprisingly good! might need some more breaking in to get the sound i like. however, the china, sounds a bit too ringy for my liking. doesn't have that nice trashy sound i'm looking for in a china cymbal. so, more than pretty good for beginners, a bit more than okay for more expreinced players.

                    These cymbals surprised me. I have the 14" hi hats, 16" crash, 18" crash, 16" china, 20" ride, 8" splash, and a 6" splash... For any beginning drummer or a real experienced drummer like myself, they're very durable and last forever... I would recommend these cymbals any day to anyone!! Thanks for reading.

                    cymbol discretion says beginner but there are for a more experienced drummer! right out of the box they sound great! could be used for all types of drumming! also no matter how small of a drum kit you have, it will make it look professional! the only down side is I had to buy three more stands so I could use them haha but it is a really good buy!!!
