Perfect allround cymbal

30.11.2014
Really dark but yet bright. Nice dry attack but with a very useful wash to it. Using mine as a crash but iIt works just as fine as main ride. Would definitely recommend this cymbal to anyone regardless their style of music.
My dream cymbal would be this one but in 24" to get that extra dynamic to it.
That would be the ultimate cymbal. This is almost as good.

From us to G dtlich

voodoo_vibes, 11.12.2013
High-end basins such as the 22 "Sand Ride are completely hand-made, the effort involved is enormous, especially the pools of the sand series go through a very long production process, every pond is pressed differently, hammered, turned and sandblasted It is clear that each pool is unique and accordingly has more or less different sound and other noise behavior.

Unfortunately, I had to say that there are black sheep in all the pools of the sand series, especially in the 22 "Sandride, which do not do justice to the high price of just under 500 euros.

In this respect, I am very disappointed by Meinl.
Before a high-end basin leaves the house, it is approved by a tester.
This should be urgently exchanged, because for what unspeakable pools partly leave the house, I personally find simply unbearable.
Finally, some people save a very long time on such pools.
Everyone who buys such an expensive basin deserves to get only the best.
Without exception.
In a music shop in Stuttgart, for example, I played a Meinl Sand Hi-Hat, which was equipped with a strong bump. Obviously a gross mistake in hand hammering.
She did not close properly anymore, and the bump curled up, even with a slight overflow.
The sound was accordingly immensely bad.
In addition, some sand rides sound completely undefined.
This can not really be that Meinl sends such a thing in the sale.
With the Thomann, however, hardly any bad pool under the stick.
On the other hand, there are also copies that simply sound divine.
And thankfully, Thomann usually has more than one to pick the best.
Very praiseworthy.
I now own the SandHat, the 18 "medium crash and this ride.
Since I have these cymbals, I can not stop playing drums, so the series sounds so nice. My 22 "Ride I've locked into my heart, because it is so incredibly good to crashen and the crash capability of rides is very important to me, and by the way it looks cool.
So if you are lucky enough to catch such wonderful specimens from this series, as I have just said, the world's most horny cymbals.

Unfortunately, the pools are only packed in an ollen, stupid plastic bag. And for this gigantic prize. Since you could really expect a wooden case or something similar. My Macbook finally came not in the plastic bag with me.
