        Got this cymbal as a christmas gift and was an addition to my drum set. Extremely good sound from a lower priced cymbal and fits in well with the other Meinl cymbals I have. Definitely would recommend buying this cymbal.

          The Meinl trash crash is a must have. It goes well with my other Meinl cymbals and offers a distinct sound. It has a quick response and really cuts through during a drum solo. Buy it, you will be glad. Only buy from Musicians Friend because of their superior customer service.

            I am not a musician, but my husband is. He has been a drummer for more than 30 years and is constantly adding to his drum set. He loves the sound and is very happy with the item. The sound is crisp and clear.

              Great on its own for a quick, bright, and washy crash, but works well when stacked with another cymbal for accents.

                      Comments about Meinl HCS Trash Crash Cymbal:

                      My first Meinl! I only added the 16" HCS Trash Crash to my kit a few sessions ago, but I'm very pleased so far. I play a big kit, and it adds a unique voice among a dozen crashes, splashes, and other effects cymbals. Very similar in sound to my 18" Sabian Xs20 China, but it's slightly trashier, slightly darker. I'm always looking for different "voices," and I really like this one!

                      But I'm a heavy hitter, so that's my only worry so far. For crashes and effects I play ZBT and ZHT, and Sabian Xs20. I invested money in hats and ride (Zil A Custom) and go budget with the stuff that gets the most abuse. The price for this Meinl was great, and I really like the cymbal. But all those HOLES in the cymbal make it appear fragile. I focus on holding back when I hit it because I'm not sure how strong it is. ZBs and ZHs usually crack within a year or so. I've never owned one of these "cut-away" cymbals, so endurance is my only concern. I'm hopeful I get lots of use out of this Meinl!

                          This is my second Meinl HCS series purchase, and 3rd overall. Budget series, but great quality for the price. German made, and have that 'German Tone' that I associate with Paiste & Meinl. The Trash Crash is like a cross between a China & a thin crash. Sharp & rings out quick. I use it with a snare hit. Dig this thing.
