OVERVIEW

The Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China features cymbals expertly developed with new designs. The Meinl MCS cymbals have been precisely hammered to produce ideal resonance. A deep lathing groove has been formed to reduce the weight and thickness of the cymbals. As a result, these cymbals have a clearer sound and far greater response. This set of cymbals is formed from the B8 alloy which is comprised of 92% copper and 8% tin with some traces of silver. It includes 14 medium hi-hats, a 16 medium crash, and a 20 medium ride. Additionally, a free Filter China is included. This cymbal has a fast, menacing sound that is quieter than most China cymbals. It offers a bold sound with a short sustain. With the recent innovations contributed to the Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack, these cymbals are the best value to add exciting tones to your drum set.

With technically advanced lathing and an improved bell design.

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 were my first set of cymbals, and they have yet to fail me. Meinl's German crafted cymbals have a unique and clear sound in all of their models, and this pack is great for beginner and intermediate players. Be careful of the Generation X China if you are a heavy hitter though, as cracks may begin to form at the holes.

    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!

      Two thumbs up

      By David Hodgin

      from Arizona

      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) !

      Best for the prce

      Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

      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
