Best sounding and priced complete cymbal set on the market!

stevedrummer5, 03.07.2013
I work as a professional drummer, and wanted a budget second hi-hat (to use as an x-hat) and small, occasional-use splash but then saw this complete set at a very low price and was impressed with the recordings on your site.

I am very pleased with the set - as a beginner I tried different complete cymbal sets and never found them very good, often too think and gong-like, usually with one cymbal or set of hats that I hated that ruined the set as a whole, but this Meinl set all sound good, and work very well together.

I am actually amazed at the sound quality at this kind of price, and definitely recommend this set to beginners/intermediates looking for a low cost full set, and to more advanced drummers looking for a decent practise set or looking to grow their cymbal collection on a budget.

Well done Meinl!!

Steve

Good Begginer Set

27.01.2017
Even though I rated it as an "okay" sounding cymbal set, I clearly remember that when I bought this set for my first band's practice room, we sure did enjoy the sound of the cymbals. As I'll state forward I find it as a good begginer's choice for a tight budget.
I think the sound of the Hats and Splash is good, but the Crash / Ride are just... okay. You'll instantly notice the difference between those and the higher priced ones.
Thee Ride sounds a little bit gong-like with to much ressonance, which for me (now that I have another set of cymbals) is con in this specific set. The Crash cymbal sounds a little tiny and not very bright, it feels like those old cymbals you get when you buy a starter drum set.
On the positive side, the cymbals are not very heavy. Take the Ride as an example, it's not heavy and has some definition and some attack too.
Overall is a fair set, from a good brand. And with that bonus splash you can't go wrong at this price.
