      I had bought this cymbal in an emergency. My previous crash cymbal had split from the bell (due to improper stand set-up...I learned my lesson) so I got into meinl cymbals and this was a cheap, quick option. At first it was loud, and not very tone-defined. As I used it, however, it began to gain that beautiful definition and quality that I was looking for. It just needed to be broken in. It is very shimmery, but that is mainly due to the nature of a B8 alloy. This is a great cheap option for anyone from a beginner to a Pre-professional active musician. I would recommend it even if you weren't in a crunch to buy a crash like I was.

      This is a decent cymbal for the price. It's bright. Fairly loud if you smack it good. Definitely not bottom of the line. I'm hoping the tone will improve with age. It seems a little flat, and at the same time high to me. But cymbals certainly are personal opinion. If you want better, you're dropping a lot of cash.

              Comments about Meinl MCS Medium Crash Cymbal:

              I've never played Meinl before getting the 18" crash ride with 14" hats. I loved them, so I added a 16" med. crash with a 10" splash stacked at 4" on top. It's a great set up and for the money they look great and sound even better. I had a drummer from a drum store recommend them. Good advice. No they're not K customs, but they don't cost as much either. I'll buy them again, if I have to!? But I think these will last a long time.

              Great Cymbal

              Comments about Meinl MCS Medium Crash Cymbal:

              I know the sound is subjective but I like this sound so I bought two. I compared with other brands in the same price range and liked this one much better. I am a hard hitter and after 18 months, there is no dent or crack on mine. I stronglly recommend.

              If you have any doubts in your mind about buying this beautiful underated peice of art i am here to tell you to look no further for that perfect crash. It explodes when hit and has that perfect balance between bright and dark, it has a very wet sound when hit hard and i love it. I got this with the pack of hats ride and china and this is my favorite cymbal. Buy this cymbal

              This is a great crash!I Have the 16in and love it!The only bad thing is after a while, around the hole where it goes on the stand, it starts to tarnish. Other than that minor flaw, great cymbal. Very good for the price. Definately a must buy!!

              Comments about Meinl MCS Medium Crash Cymbal:

              i had bought this cymbal not even a year ago,and bought a meinl classic medium 14". the mcs had cracked about a month to a month and a half ago, the classic medium is still doing great, and i dont even hit that hard. the mcs sounded great either way, fixed the crack and it still sounds good, but its not the same. if you are on a tight budget and cant afford the nicer stuff, but could save up to upgrade in less then a year, go for it. i was and on a tight budget and got this, now im on a tighter budget and have to stick with this and hope my fix job holds up
