OVERVIEW

With technically advanced lathing and an improved bell design.

The MCS series from Meinl Cymbals are precision crafted in Germany. They offer a wide array of sound options to satisfy the diverse styles of today’s music. So whether you are playing rock, metal, pop, R&B, etc., these cymbals are well-suited to integrate into your setup.

The Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China contains 14" medium hi-hats, a 16" medium crash, a 20" medium ride, plus a free Filter China. These Meinl cymbals are all specially harmonically matched for the most musical sound. Created with the B8 alloy of 92 percent copper, 8 percent tin (plus traces of silver) for bright, rich, laser-clear sound quality.

The Free 14" Filter China cymbal provides a fast, sharp, and almost sinister sound. Quieter than most China cymbals, it has a short sustain due to the waved edge. Most remarkably, its look is achieved by a capillary fine lathing process that sets the bell apart from the rest of the cymbal's surface. This highly technical lathing process results in a clearer and more projecting bell sound.

A deep lathing groove is applied on to the cymbal's surface, remarkably reducing its thickness and weight. This results in a quicker response that enables the sound to unfold much easier. Along with precise hammering patterns, the new Meinl MCS cymbals set the standard in this price range.

FEATURES
  • 14" MCS Medium hi-hats
  • 16" MCS Medium crash
  • 20" MCS Medium ride
  • Free Generation-X 14 inch Filter china
  • Precision crafted in Germany
  • Recommended for any style of music

        Overall these cymbals are very well built with a dirt cheap price. These make good cymbals for beginners and more experienced players. I highly recommend this to any person looking for great cymbals for a low price. These cymbals are also very universal in music styles. You can play the hardcore drumming of metal to the soft sounds of jazz.
        These cymbals have great features. The bells on all the cymbals are clean and bright. These definitely beat most sabian and zildjian cymbals.
        These cymbals sound a lot better than the price. I felt worried buying these cymbals at first because they were so cheap. Honestly these are the best cymbals I have ever played on. The only thing that could have been improved is the ride. The ride had a great tone and pitch, but it was not as clear sounding as I wished. Overall these are exellent cymbals.
        The value is the best money can buy. You get a very great sounding cymbal set These are worth at least
        $200 more than what you pay for them.

        Well I know I could(should) have spent a lot more money. I'll say this, the ride is pretty good, the hats--definitely geared to hard rock/metal sound. The crash WAS satisfactory. Bought them in 9/2013, today(12/2013) the crash has lost all resonance and sounds awful. Contacted Meinl warranty and this is not a warranty condition according to Garrett Davidson of Meinl. So, in comparison to the cheapest Zildjian these sound slightly better, because the cheap Zildjian sound like trash. I am bummed that the cymbal failed so quickly and with surprising little use--my drummer doens't exacting smash them like some folks do either. Not impressed guys and gals.

        Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

        These are great cymbals for anyone looking to add to their existing set or start from scratch. If you're a hard hitter like myself, you've probably cracked a few expensive cymbals and wanted to die because the warranty had expired. In this case, these cymbals are pretty durable and they sound great. From the first time I played live with them, people were already remarking on how much more they could hear the brightness in the playing. I would recommend to anyone looking for something that can take a beating and last a while at the same time.

        The one con, and I could just be biased, but the hi-hats seem a little on the flat side with regard to their shimmer. The ride bell is awesome, but you have to locate the sweet spot or else it is all sour sounds.

        That's really it. I love them, and I'd buy it again.

        PS - The China cymbal is awesome sounding!

          These were purchased as a gift for my son who has been drumming for about 6 years now. He absolutely loves them and their sound. He has told me several times how awesome they are and juding by the amount of time he plays them, I'd say that he is more than pleased! You won't be dissapointed in this cymbal pack, it's a great set at a great price!

          Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

          If your a beginner I highly reccomend these, I had these when I was first starting out and they met my expectaions, especially the Thomas Lang Filter china (which I still use). The only thing I didnt like about these cymbals were the Hi-Hats, they didnt sound as quality. Ive moved up from all these cymbals straight to the Byzance Brilliant (which I also Highly reccomend) !

          These cymbals really do sound like more expensive ones. The high hats are not quite my sound, but they will do, the rest are way better than I expected for the price.

          I got these cymbals as an upgrade from my stock cymbals, and when I play shows, people tell me how great the cymbals sound. These cymbals sound better than the price on it, that's for sure.

          not bad at all!!!

          Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

          I bought these cymbals based on the reviews on this website, overall these are very nice for the price. The hats sound good open, but closed they sound like a tin can or something. The 16 inch the "worst" one of them all but still not to bad. Two thumbs up for the 20 inch ride, now the filter china is very interesting. Its very crashy sounding with a bit of sizzle but not explosive in anyway, I like to crash on it more than the 16 inch.Overall I would recommend these for any poor drummers out there

          Great Set, With Great Cymbals

          By NateC

          from Baker, Fl

          Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

          I have been seriously playing drums for about 4 years now, and it's literally all I do, so I wanted some nice cymbals for my new Ludwig set. I got these for Christmas and I am very impressed. Crash: Very fast, cutting sound. Good overall crash.Ride:Ok, kinda pingy, but it does It's job. Probably my least favorite, but it's still a good cymbal.Filter China: Very interesting, and sizzling sound. GREAT for fill accents. Would not ride on it though, since it's quite thin, and the bumpy edges mess up your sticks. But not horribly bad.Hi-Hats:Overall the best part. My music style doesn't make much use of hi-hats but these are stellar. Nice chick, bit of good wash when played open, but not over-bearing, annoying wash.As I said, amazing cymbal set. Meinl has sold me, I'm sticking with them.
