Comments about Meinl MB8 Medium Crash Cymbal:

I use these on me live and practice setups as well as some recording. I wanted good sounding machine made cymbals to use on my live gigs and practices because my hand hammered set up has had some damages over the last couple of years. It started with a 19" mb8 medium crash then was followed by a 17"but the 17 was always lacking in sound spectrum and balance(just wasn't as payable). So I have upgraded to an 18"medium mb8 and it is just perfect for my playing.I feel these cymbals sound like a cross of Paiste 2002's and sabian AA's and for me thats perfect. I have to say that medium crashes in this series smaller than 18" just aren't as cutting and aggressive and medium crashes over 19"(although they sound wonderful) would be more prone to cracking because of B8 bronze being more brittle of an alloy but the price makes up for that.

Comments about Meinl MB8 Medium Crash Cymbal:

I've had the Meinl mb8 20" medium crash for about 5 hours and I have barely touched my Meinl HCS ride since. the 20" makes a wonderful crash/ride. I love everything about it, definitely consider this as a secondary crash or crash/ride.


Great cymbal.

Comments about Meinl MB8 Medium Crash Cymbal:

I recieved this cymbal when i cracked my amun 16" medium crash because it was under warranty. The cymbal right off the bat looks awesome. Its brilliant finish but with lathe marks going around it. Its brighter than my amun so if you play Real heavy stuff you might wanna not get the 16 cause its really bright.
