I have taken a little break from playing drums since the birth of our little one. Recently I have been wanting to get back into it and always heard great things about the Meinl cymbal line. I have to say for an introductory set into their unique line, this set is awesome. Great for beginners (or re-entries like myself) or folks looking for an extra set to have nice diversity of sound!

Meinl HCS Set

Not super happy with this set of cymbals. I wish I had upgraded to another step up. Not bad for the price but wasn't what I expected.
