More a crash
Liambrady_1, 22.01.2018
This is a brilliant cymbal.

I use it a lot for its crash-ability in heavy hitting songs and when its at the end of a song or a chorus too fill it up that bit more.

the only con with this cymbal is the ride. If you are buying this cymbal dont buy it for a ride cymbal buy it for a crash. (It does have a nice sounding bell on it.

Bijzonder bekken!
mickvanliere, 20.10.2017
Ik zocht al een tijd nieuwe bekkens als professioneel drummer in een funky blues rock band. Ik ben een drummer met gospel, r&b, soul en hip-hop invloeden dus de bekkens moesten voor vele stijlen inzetbaar zijn. Was al een tijd fan van de Byzance extra dry serie, maar ben sinds aanschaf van deze opnieuw verliefd geworden. De bekkens zijn licht, en vrij kort van geluid. Ze zijn aanwezig, maar zeker niet overheersend in een goede mix. Ze zijn uitstekend te gebruiken voor rock-toepassingen, maar ook voor andere voorgenoemde genres vind ik ze perfect in het plaatje passen.

Als ride vind ik de 20" zogenoemde crash/ride minder aantrekkelijk. Ik bespeel het bekken zelf nooit als tide, omdat er weinig tot geen ?ping? te bekennen is. Misschien komt het omdat het bekken dunner is dan de rides die ik gewend ben, maar ik zou persoonlijk de 20" dual crash/ride slechts als crash aanbevelen.

Die aanbeveling is er daarentegen wel een die ik met veel overtuiging en enthousiasme kan doen, want ik ben echt zeer tevreden met deze aankoop, en het bekken heeft me al bij vele optredens en studiotoepassingen bij mogen staan.

Aanrader!

amazing
Toberger, 21.03.2019
Der Grundcharakter des Meinl Dual Crash/Rides ist jazzig düster mit farbenfroh schimmernden Nuancen ohne störende Obertöne. Die Stickartikulation ist für so ein dünnes Becken recht klar und wird von einem schönen Wash begleitet. Die Glocke ist präsent, ohne dabei zu laut zu sein.

Für mein kleines mobiles Rock-Pop-Tourkit war ich auf der Suche nach einer Ein-Becken-Lösung, und dabei habe ich dieses Becken den Omnis von Sabian vorgezogen (nicht angespielt, Vergleich nur via Youtube). Letztere klingen mir persönlich zu clean. Auch wenn das Dual Crash/Ride sicher nicht primär für dieses Genre konzipiert wurde, kann ich nach ausgiebigem Live-Einsatz sagen, dass es meine Erwartungen sogar übertrifft. Im gecrashten Chorus breitet es einen wunderschönen Teppich aus, der sich super in den Mix einfügt. Einzelne Crashschläge haben ein angenehm kurzes Sustain, aber eben nicht zu kurz, wie bspw. (nach meinem Empfinden) die Extra Drys von Meinl.

Neben dem umwerfenden Klang, der ja aber Geschmackssache ist, hier nochmal die etwas objektiveren Pros
+++sehr vielseitig einsetzbar, die Ein-Becken-Lösung geht auf und ist kein Kompromiss
+++aufgrund der angenehmen Frequenzen und des vergleichsweise niedrigen Grundpegels kann man auch in kleineren Locations "mit Spaß" spielen

Als Contra könnte man sicher den Preis nennen. Für mich persönlich war die Preis/Leistung bei einem Becken aber noch nie so gut.
