    Been playing music for 51 years, own a brick and mortar custom guitar store and studio.

    Great price, gerater sound.

    Just received my Meinl 14" HCS Crash cymbal and am surprised by the sound and quality. I purchased this cymbal to round out the cymbal selection on my Vintage 1966 Rogers kit used in the studio. I chose the Meinl only on the cost issue, it was very inexpensive. Although it was inexpensive, I now know that it isn't cheap. This cymbal has an awesome timbre and unbelievable sustain. This far surpasses my expectations. I generally use Sabian and Zildjan, but now will consider Meinl as well. The cost point ias amazing abd quality and sound are far superior to what could be expected reflecting the cost. I am now a Meinl fan and look forward to adding to my arsenal of cymbals with them. Thanks for making such a great product.

    one sweet cymbal

    This cymbal looks GREAT, has a fast response and has a very nice bell/gong sound. It is constructed thick enough to last. Top quality for a can't-be-beat price!

    Great accent

    I have had my 14 inch HCS crash now for three days. What a great accent crash! Very nice bite and tone. Rounds out my cymbals very nicely.

    heavy crash

    I was imidiately impressed by the weight for a 14 inch crash. Respronse is sluggish, and it takes a good whack to get a decent sound from it, but im used to thin crashes. Lower volume and dark sound compliment my hammered B20 crashes well and the HCS crash seems well made. good crash vor heavy accents. well worth the price and im gonna pound it at gigs!

    Great deal

    I was initially pleased with the super low price, but after receiving the cymbal, I am happy with it, but not super amazed. You kinda get what you pay for, but not to the extent of how cheap the cost is. It soundslike a cymbal about twice its cost, which is still cheap compared to good cymbals a live performer would invest in. But, that still means this sounds like a $70 cymbal. I love it. I'm pleased with how little I payed for such a useful addition to my drum set. If you're budget minded, don't hesitate to get this cymbal!

    Great Value

    We have been using these Meinl HCS cymbals live for over a year and they sound great and have been very reliable.

    14 and 16 HCS crashes

    Both are great for the set they were put with, my student is happy.

    Very nice sound, especially for the price! Nice response with a quick fade. Cannot wait to get some recordings done with this!

    Good for the price

    I'm not a professional by any stretch, but I feel pretty cool banging on the same brand name cymbal as Meytal Cohen at such an affordable price and it sounds great as a 2nd crash cymbal. No complaints here except I'm not married to Meytal.

    Hardly a crash

    Got this symbol And and when you hit it there's no sustain whatsoever and hardly even has enough sustain to be considered a splash much less the crash there's just no sound at all to this symbol very disappointed
