Liebe auf den ersten Ton!
silid1210mk2, 12.06.2015
Staubtrocken aber in der thin Variante butterweich. Toller erdiger Klangcharakter und der Anblick, wie das Becken am Rand schwingt durch die Vibration ist einfach nur schön.. wirklich etwas besonderes, aber nicht zu speziell.
Wie so oft bei diesen dünnen jazzig, funkigen Becken ist die Bell einigermaßen schwach und man kann es crashen, aber es ist dann nur ein sehr kurzer, staubiger Hauch.
Für Rocksachen nur beding einsetzbar.
Die Optik ist wunderbar, durch die hohen Temperaturen läuft das unbehandelte braun, beige schon mal bis ins rötlich, violette hinein.
Tolles Teil!!

The best ride I have ever played !
18.05.2016
This cymbal is a must have for musicians who don't want a cheap and agressive "ping" sound when they play a ride cymbal.

It has a rich, dark and controlled sound.

It can be played as a ride or as a big dark crash and the impact of the drumsticks is really soft and easy.

The bad thing is that the price is really really really expensive but it's worth it !

Bra torr cymbal som funkar bra till jazz!
Jakob1, 21.04.2015
Jag letade efter en ride som skulle fungera bra i lågvolyms jazzsituationer. Som var fyllig men samtidigt torr. Klockan ska i min smak vara torr och inte allt för skrikande. Meinl levererar som vanligt! Underbart torrt ljud med bra respons och frän artikulation. Fungerar skitbra att crasha på. Den fungerar bra i nästan alla typer av jazz. Dock, på gund av sin torrhet, så fungerar den inte optimalt i latin-jazz.

Om man letar efter en estetiskt tilltalande ride så är det här ett av de bästa alternativen! Den är "rostig" på både över och undersidan och den låter jävligt vintage.

Sehr trocken und erdig
Wutbürger Stefan, 20.04.2015
Ich habe dieses Becken bereits bei verschiedenen Künstlern im Einsatz gesehen, ob Pop, Rock oder Jazz. Da ich selbst Musik in Richtung Blues und Bluesrock spiele, dachte ich mir, dies sei eine gute Anschaffung - und das hat sich auch bestätigt.
Der Klang ist sehr trocken. Nach einem deutlichen, akzentuierten Ping ebbt er sehr schnell wieder ab zu einem sehr dunkel Grundrauschen. Für eine Band ist das sehr schön, weil das helle Schreien manch anderer Rides immer unsere Musik ein bisschen kaputt gemacht hat. Für mich persönlich ist es deshalb auch schön - als Nebeneffekt - dass auch ich den Rest der Musik besser hören kann. Grobe Spielfehler verzeiht das Becken jedoch nicht; die fallen wirklich auf!
Schön ist, bedingt durch die geringe Dicke des Materials, dass man das Becken auch schön an-crashen kann, was dann einen sehr dunkeln Sound erzeugt, der auch recht schnell wieder abebbt. Der Kuppen-Sound ist auch schön, jedoch muss man hier wirklich recht genau einen bestimmten Bereich (mittig auf der Kuppenflanke) treffen, da die Bell eben auch recht dünn es.

Aber es muss natürlich gesagt sein: bei aller Beschreiberei kann ich den Sound nicht wirklich exakt in Worten darstellen. Er ist schon ein wenig speziell und sicherlich nicht jedermanns Geschmack. Wer den relativ teuren Kauf absichern will, sollte sich vorher auf der MEINL-Seite die Soundbeispiele anhören und dann entscheiden.

Tipp: Die Oberfläche ist wirklich unbehandelt. Beim Auspacken hatte ich tatsächlich die Finger leicht schmutzig. Daher - wenn man mit seinem (anderen) Material eher vorsichtig umgeht - sollte man das Ride vor dem Verpacken in einer Beckentasche durchaus mal mit einem Tuch abwischen.
