Great Sound, Fantastic Looks. Exceptional Value

Michael8641, 17.07.2018
I was looking a new set of cymbals with a less bright tone that my usual set and came across the Meinl Classic Custom Dark range. I have to say that they are the most visual dramatic set of cymbals that I've come across and I was very impressed by samples of the sounds so I bought a basic starter set. When I got them delivered they were even better than I was expecting. So I decided to expand the set and added a small 10" splash and this 18" China. Again I am very pleased with the look and typical 'trashy' China sound. I am a gigging drummer playing rock music and the cymbals needed to cut though but not overpower things. Oddly enough my band have been complaining that my regular top line cymbal were TOO bright. So while I was myself intereste d in trying something different I didnt want to spend £1000's on another premium range. I wanted value for money and these are a great range at a great price. Highly recommended.

Good quality / price ratio

An ideal model for metal, with a precise and aggressive sound. The overall volume fits very well to my set and the finish and aesthetics are really cool!

For a mid-range you find yourself very well, I also have a ZXT in 18 of Zildjian, there's no photo in between!

Quite versatile I would still advise to "hitters" to exploit all its potential.
