How do you feel about meinl cymbals. i was gonna start looking into them and i know of many pros who use them and i love their sound. i know they are a bit pricey but they might be worth the money. i just wanted to see how everyone feels about meinl cymbals. let me know because im looking to get a crash.

i have heard good things but as you said pricy, i know the drummer from fightstar recently got endorsed by them and the great mr lang aswell, but i duno i love their splashes and ride cymbals but i prefer sabian i think if you wana try some advance top end ones sabian hhx is the way, but you can mix and match a set up to you not every cymbal has to be the same i don't think. check out the meinl medium series tho.

go to www.music123.com and look at the meinal MCS package, for like 95 bucks you get hats, ride, and crash that sound unexplicably good for the price, same goes for wuhan S series.

get a 20" byzance med. crash if you get any of their crashes,its hella expensive but more than worth it,i own a 16" 18" 19" and 20" and they all sound amazing,as for a ride,probably a 20" or a 22" mb10 for starting its cheaper than the mb20's,play those for a wile then step up,i play a 24"mb20 ride and its massive and heavy but its has unbelievable sound to it

Meinls are great. They're very aggressive and experimental with some of their lines.

i think meinls are pretty equal to the prices or RUDEs and A customs
i like all 3 of them and i wish i could integrate all 3 of them into my set but i dont any money.
overall i think byzances are a great cymbal line with a natural feel.
A customs and RUDEs are great sound as well.
its all up to youu.
good luck

Meinl are superb as far as sound go. Ive never heard anything that quite stands up to them. the ONLY problem may be that they tend to crack a bit easily. but then again it really all depends i guess. how hard you hit them, angle, thickness.

Meinl FTW

Meinl's are great.

I use the byzance series medium ride, and its unlike any other ride I've played on. Byzance cymbals are so shimmery and have such a lush character. I love it.
