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.

    This is a good cymbal, and was great priced. At first, I was afraid it would let me down, but it did not. It sounded a little brighter than I expected, but I like bright sounds.

            Comments about Meinl MCS Medium Crash Cymbal:

            This cymbal is absolutely great for its price.It's not a pro cymbal for sure, but it has great sound. MCS series is pretty high pitched, which I didn't like at first, but it made a perfect sound contrast on my set. I reccomend this cymbal to intermediate drummers that want good, but cheap cymbals on their set. If you've never played meinl, I think this cymbals will amaze you with their quality at such a low price. I give it a 4 star because of its unexpectedly high sound, the 18 inch borderline sounds like a 16 inch. I wild definitely go to meinl's website and check out its sound first.

                    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.

                    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
