Comments about Meinl HCS Super Cymbal Pack:

These cymbals are not only inexpensive but of high quality. The coating on them does chip a bit, and the wear is easily shown, but they are heavy duty and built to last for a very long time. I play hard rock/heavy metal, and there's no denting, cracking, or anything like that on them. They are very responsive and sound awesome, especially if you're a loud player (Jazz musicians will admire the ride cymbal which has a nice bell to it). I highly recommend.

    Comments about Meinl HCS Super Cymbal Pack:

    right out of the box, these cymbals sound surprisingly good! might need some more breaking in to get the sound i like. however, the china, sounds a bit too ringy for my liking. doesn't have that nice trashy sound i'm looking for in a china cymbal. so, more than pretty good for beginners, a bit more than okay for more expreinced players.

      Comments about Meinl HCS Super Cymbal Pack:

      I have been playing for I hate to say it over 40 years. I have a set of vintage early 1980's Zildjian cymbals that I had finally cracked my favorite 18" rock crash and my 12" splash. I originally set out to replace these two cymbals. then I ran across the super set by accident. did a ton of research on these things. read the reviews everywhere etc. I decided to purchase a whole new set(7 cymbals total) for cheaper than what these 2 cymbals would cost me to replace. I MADE THIS PURCHASE WITH A BIT OF SKEPTICISM. How good could this set be at slightly more $$'s than one quality proven crash. I got them and installed them with new rubber post protectors and those foam cympad things (which I also highly recommend). I was astounded at the sound of these things. I really love the splash and crashes, and the china has grown on me as well. the 2 crashes play great together or separate or with the splash. I recorded these things onto my computer and they sound fairly awesome without any doctoring at all. Now to the important part...I am a very heavy hitter and because of that use very small sticks with the nylon tip. these cymbals sound just as good with a light, small diameter nylon tip as they do with a big fat wooden rock and roll stick. I been beating on them 3 to 5 days a week for a month now and no sign of any damage and they just keep sounding better!! the best cymbal money I ever spent and I've played them all!!

        Comments about Meinl HCS Super Cymbal Pack:

        I was shopping around for cymbals to buy that would be just for shows as well as studio. A lot of options I was looking at had me ordering certain cymbals separate and being a bit more costly. Then, I came across this pack that came with every size cymbal that I am currently using. After some research, video watching, as well as getting to test them out myself, I invested. So far I have used these on stage twice and they've been great for me. I'm also very picky about how my china should sound, but this china did not disappoint me. I play in an Industrial Rock/Metal band and a lot of the beats I do are ranged from Metal/Rock/Punk. Also, I usually play wooden tips, but after buying these cymbals I decided to see how they'd sound with a nylon tip. I've decided to start playing nylon tips, because of how great it sounded on these cymbals.

          Comments about Meinl HCS Super Cymbal Pack:

          I've been playing drums (non professionally) for almost 30 year. These cymbals are exactly what you expect to get out of them. For an entry level set they sound great. I've been playing them now for awhile and they show no signs of cracking or warping. The bell on the ride is a little finicky, hit it too hard in the wrong spot and it kinda distorts, that may change the longer I play though. I'm glad I got them and you will be too

          Comments about Meinl HCS Super Cymbal Pack:

          I have been a professional musician most of my life. I played drums almost fifty years ago, then went back to the sax. Now, at age 69, I decided I would like to get back on drums. It has been a few years, so I did not want to invest a lot into a set, until I get my chops back. I got a good deal on a set without cymbals. I saw the Super Cymbal Pack for a great price, so I scoured the Net for videos of players using the cymbals and decided to purchase them. I am very pleased with them, a great set for a great price! . I feel that I can use them for professional gigs, maybe upgrade with a couple added cymbals. I am pleased with my purchase and the fast delivery service!

            I've been experimenting with Meinl for a long time and I'm so happy I finally made the switch. The day I got this pack I recorded a song and I loved the way they sounded. Even in the booth I couldn't get over the quality. This was a smart move on my own behalf and I would recommend these to anyone.

                  In my opinion Meinl hit the nail on the head with the HCS line. This "entry level" cymbal set is most certainly a good buy. For the price you can't go wrong.

                    Comments about Meinl HCS Super Cymbal Pack:

                    Been playing 29 years.
                    Was a Sabian guy (AA , AAX).
                    Wanted to try MEINL with out breaking the bank.
                    Was skeptical of the price/sound/performace.
                    I was wrong.
                    Watched and listened to some good videos of this set/series on y-tube with these in a mic'd studio setting.
                    WoW.
                    Bought this set.
                    Tried them out , and recorded them.
                    WoW.
                    Great sound and response , plus they seem very durable.
                    You can get a great sound from these recording-wise if you use good mic placement and proper EQ-ing.
                    These have a nice focused,quick decay. Not too ringy. Good attack.
                    I'd say hands down , these Cymbals are the best bang for your buck that you can get.
                    I'm going to get more.
                    This set has everything most drummers would need....2 crash , 1 ride , 1 splash , 1pr hats , 1 china.
                    Set is matched up great , although I prefer an 18" china , the 16" china in this set is great.
                    Like most other owners on here , I am VERY happy with my set.

                      I bought these for my home studio/jam space drum kit. I wanted a cost effective cymbal set that would be good enough for the purpose. These are perfect for what I wanted. The crashes, splash, and ride sound very good,, the high hats are good, and the china is okay. Only had them a few weeks, Assuming they last, I don't think you could ask for much more at this price point.

                          The 18", 16", & 14" crashes along with the 12" splash creates a wide range of sound across my kit. I am trying Meinl for the first time and I am very pleased so far. The 20" ride has a nice tone with great bell action and hi-hats are crisp and clean just the way I like them!

                              I'm really digging these cymbals. I stopped playing for about 6 years, and wanted to get back into it. This set seemed like a fantastic deal to get everything I used to have in a kit, and they sound great. The ride in particular, great shimmer with a cutting ring on the bell.

                                  I would recommend this super cymbal pack to any beginner or experienced drummer. The sound quality is clear and crisp, the feel is very responsive and somewhat predictable. And they look really nice! It's a good deal for the price.

                                    I use this product as my first real cymbal buy. I saw that it was good for beginners or small venues and can back it up by my results. The cymbals are really great with very nice sound and responsiveness, especially with the hi-hat and china. They provide enough for a player of any level for the cost at which they are offered. Overall, great purchase!
