Fast and Full Accents & Timekeeping
Matt Garstka from Animals As Leaders needed a stack that was immediate but musical; fast but full bodied. So Meinl went to work to develop the Matt Garstka Artist Concept 18" Fat Stack. Its dual cymbal surfaces — one raw, one traditionally lathed — play off each other splendidly for a sharp attack and dry decay without coming across trash can-ny. Place under high tension for a crunchy bite, or loosen slightly to engage more of the body and wash. Matt's Meinl Fat Stack works well for timekeeping, accenting, and of course, death metal breakdowns.

The Meinl Artist Concept series celebrates the individuality of each performer with a cymbal stack that is uniquely their own. What Sweetwater likes about this series is that it takes the guesswork out of cymbal stacking. Each instrument is made from complementary alloys, weights, sizes, finishes, and surfacing for a professional-looking stack that fills a specified need. Explore new textures and revitalize your old patterns with Meinl Artist Concept cymbals.
