Heavier weight and a highly polished finish gives the Mb20 Ride Cymbal a bright, dry and glassy ping.
Meinl's Mb20 series was created for one reason-high volume. The weights are all on the heavier side for that reason. But anyone can make a loud ride cymbal, the magic with the Mb20 series is that they are still musical and they feel good to play. The cymbals are handmade in Turkey using the traditional B20 bronze alloy and then the polishing process is performed in Germany. The finish is a super brilliant finish-perfect for stage lights, and Meinl has a special two-step buffing process. The cymbals are perfect for anything loud.
The Mb20 heavy ride kicks it with excellent stick definition and medium sustain.

Comments about Meinl Mb20 Heavy Ride Cymbal:
I was in desperate need of a ride cymbal that wasn't too washy when I used it as a crash, but didn't overpower the other parts of my kit. It is loud when I need it to be and the bell sounds fantastic. And you know it's MEINL so quality and durability is obviously a first guarantee. I love love it. I don't plan on replacing it with anything for a very long time. =D
