Started in Germany in the early 1950s, Meinl has always been known for the quality of their cymbals. Growing quickly throughout Europe, and soon after expanding internationally, Meinl became one of the largest manufacturers of cymbals in the world, celebrated by artists in all genres of music. Continuously training their team of skilled craftsmen and constantly innovating and experimenting, Meinl's drive is to push the limit on what a cymbal can do.
Offering everything from ride and crash cymbals to China, hi-hat, splash and effect cymbals, Meinl prides themselves on the variety of the alloys they use. Basically, if you can't find what you're looking for with Meinl, you probably won't find it anywhere. With such a wide selection, the best place to start is probably with your direct needs as a percussionist.
In need of a reliable crash cymbal that will add volume to every performance? Then you're looking for the MB20 Heavy Crash. With explosive power and outstanding sustain, the MB20 also has a brilliant finish ensuring it looks as good as it sounds. After something that delivers as much of a punch visually as it does sonically? Take a look at the Byzance Dark Hi Hats. With an untreated finish and hand-made construction, these cymbals look and sound raw, adding an earthy tone to your music. There are even full sets available, like the HCS Super Cymbal Pack, which combine a variety of cymbals that complement each other's sound.
Used by drummers like Tommy Clufetos of Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie, Moe Carlson of Protest The Hero, Brann Dailor of Mastadon, death metalist Jaska Raatikainen of Children of Bodom and so many more, these cymbals give every one of their performances a little more crash and bang. If you're looking for the same, Meinl can definitely accommodate.
