because of meinl being from germany, they are expensive and hard to come across, checkout www.lidrum.com they have all of them.

I play Meinl cymbals, mostly Amun.
I've played Sabian B8 series cymbals which consist of the same B8 bronze alloy (same amount (8%) of tin in the alloy) but you get a complete different dynamic; I'd choose Meinl over Sabian and Zildjian any day. I think Meinl are probably most like Paiste when it comes to the crafting, sound and feel.

I recomend Meinl...

if you are looking for something different than Zildjian and Sabian look a Paiste they have ranges to suit pretty much anybody and they have some of the best sounding cymbals around!

I AGREE WITH THAT. PAISTES REALLY DO HAVE SOME OF THE BEST CYMBAL SOUND IMO. THE ONLY THING I HAVE AGAINST PAISTE IS THAT THEY CRACK REALLY TO EASY. ID LIKE TO CHECK OUT MORE OF MEINL'S PRODUCTS

I don't like Sabian very much, but I love Zildjian As and A Customs. Although... the Sabian Evolutions are ok.

I do have a Mienl Byzance 16" Dark Crash. I must say, it's my favorite cymbal. It's absolutely amazing. I love the dark, smooth tone of it.

My dream cymbal package is prolly Istanbul, check them out.

I'm a Meinl drummer through and through.

The only 'bad' thing about Meinl is that its very hard to pick a cymbal, cause they all sound so good! And they all suit eachother perfectly.

My next cymbal is Mb20 21" Heavy Ride, to go with my Byzance hats and Classics crash. It sounds so yum.
