Medium Meinl Cymbals
If you're interested in kicking things off with a new crash, the Meinl Soundcaster Fusion Medium Crash Cymbal is a great one. It's a B12 alloy beauty that you'll notice is done in two different finishes: the middle is unlathed brilliant and the outer edge is traditionally lathed. This combination produces warm, shimmering sound with an enhanced wash. No wonder so many drummers give this crash a top rating for its responsiveness and expressiveness. You'll like this cymbal's versatility too: ride on it when you play metal or tune into its bright accent and quick decay when you're performing funk.
Are you a drummer who likes the musicality of B20 bronze alloy? If that's the case, the Meinl Byzance Extra Dry Medium Ride Traditional Cymbal is a fantastic choice. It's a hand-hammered disc with a completely unlathed surface that gives you a dark, dirty sound with no wash. With its very short sustain and stick definition; smoky tone and buttery feel, this is a versatile top pick for drummers who play rock, Latin, R&B, jazz, pop, country music and more.
As a company made up of other drummers who can relate to your need to stand out and be different, Meinl produces many cymbals in both traditional and modern designs so that you have lots of freedom to pick and choose as you create your own special sound. With every cymbal you add to your setup, you shape your music. Have some fun trying out different ones as you finesse your drumming technique and musical style.
