A specially finished cymbal set with dark, complex tones and articulate response.

The MEINL Classics Custom Dark expanded cymbal set provides a comprehensive range of professional cymbals with dark, complex tones for any style of music. These cymbals yield clarity, cut and volume along with a richly musical character.

Dark, Complex Tones for a Modern Sound

You'll love the modern sound of these cymbals, which undergo a special finishing process resulting in dark, complex overtones. The 14" hi-hats provide a crisp chick sound with full-bodied shimmer. The 20" ride cymbal yields a balanced blend of ping, wash and sustain that cuts through dense mixes. Crashes in 16" and 18" sizes offer warm, powerful swells to punctuate your playing.

Wide Range Covers All Your Needs

With two crashes, a ride, hi-hats, China and effect cymbals, this set provides a versatile palette for crafting your unique drum sound. The 18" China cymbal cuts through with a trashy, distorted tone that decays quickly. A 16" trash crash provides a short, distorted crash with a raw, gritty tone. 10" splash and 12" trash splash cymbals offer bright, shimmering accents.

Premium Design and Craftsmanship

These professional-quality cymbals feature traditional hand hammering and lathing techniques for a classic look and feel. Widely spaced deep hammering helps shape the cymbal's powerful sound. Precision-crafted in Germany, MEINL Classics Custom Dark cymbals provide outstanding quality, durability and tonal consistency for all your drumming needs. With a premium set covering all the essentials, you'll have a cohesive selection of dark-sounding cymbals to inspire your creativity.
