Meinl Splash Cymbals
With their immediate and explosive attack, Meinl splashes are truly in a class of their own, and within this section you'll find an impressive range of splashes that are more than capable of taking your percussion talents to the next level. Softer and less abrasive than a crash, splash cymbals are an excellent way to add color and character to your drum performance. In fact, Meinl specializes in a variety of different splash types that cover many different musical styles, including hip hop, fusion, rock and jazz.
For example, if you're looking for a splash that is strong and punchy, yet dark and mysterious, check out the Byzance splash cymbal. Well-known for its somewhat earthy sound, this splash is one of the more unusual cymbals in the Meinl catalog, producing a short sustain in a low-frequency range, and containing a raw, unprocessed appearance. Another popular option is the Classics Custom splash. Stunningly bright and cutting, this cymbal is made in Germany from B10 bronze alloy to create a huge, modern sound with a moderate decay. Ideal for fast accents, the Classics Custom splash blends extremely well with almost any other cymbal.
As any experienced player will tell you, the difference between a good drummer and a great one is versatility. After all, by learning how to perform different styles, your overall technique will improve tremendously, and this includes incorporating different kinds of drums and cymbals into your routine. With that in mind, if you're unfamiliar with playing splash cymbals, it's strongly recommended that you give them a try, and remember to keep in mind that Meinl splash cymbals are considered by many to be the best.
