Excellent ride for the money
SimoneT, 14.07.2015
I bought this approximately 5 months ago. So far it has been very good. My problem with the previous ride was that the sustain was definitely too long, the bell was too aggressive and overall it didn't work too well in a small live performance.
This one is just on the sweet spot. Some sustain, but not too much. Bell distinguishes itself withough going "DAAAAAAAAAAANG". Price is survivable.
Of course you are not going to find that super special quality you might want to find in a very particular ride from the higher range, but if you want something standard, pleasing and reliable to start from, this is it.

I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

An amazing cheap and high quality ride cymbal. It's sound is different from what it sounds in this site and in youtube. It sounds way better when you hear it with your own ears. It's volume is high enough. The price is very low for such a great ride, the price is low for all the HCS parts.
I would prefer the bell to sound less brighter but still it sounds amazing.

Great cheap ride

I am not a drummer and I use it just to spice up electronic drums but for that purpose it works and sound just fine! Nice tone from the bell and the body. Cuts through and can do crash sounds too.

TOP für Einsteiger und Leute die aufs Geld achten
Scooty, 05.11.2009
Als es mich nach einer längeren Pause des Schlagzeug spielens doch wieder hinters Schlagzeug verschlagen hatte musste ein neues Setup her.
Ich wollte nicht zu viel ausgeben aber auch nicht auf qualität verzichten also entschloss ich mich nach längerem recherchieren für die HCS Serie von Meinl. Also bestellt und nach 3 Tagen hielt ich es auch schon in den Händen . Von der Verarbeitung und dem Aussehen erstmal TOP also schnell ans Set montiert und probe gespielt . Der erste Eindruck im Klang war erst nicht der Beste doch als man es im einklang mit dem Rest des Schlagzeuges, Gitarre, Bass und gesang hörte war ich erstaunt wie gut dieses günstige Becken doch klingt dafür das es doch so günstig war. Auf den längeren Zeitraum zeigte sich das sich das Becken in viele Musikstile passt und sich sehr gut in die lieder einbringt. Einzig die Glocke des Rides sticht nicht so sehr heraus wie man es vielleicht erwarten aber das ist kein Grund dafür sich nicht für dieses Becken zu entscheiden.
Alle die sich günstige aber gute Becken kaufen wollen ohne gleich ein riesen loch in ihre Brieftasche zu schlagen sollten sich mit den HCS Becken von Meinl auseinander setzen.
