Love em

Was so excited to get this pack and it didn't let me down. First time Meinl owner and I think they won me over. One thing is for certain, Sweetwater has won over my business. Fast, free shipping. Follow up phone calls. Be great if everyone did business like you guys. Keep up the good work.

Really good stuff!

I was wanting something that sounded very different from my old Zildjians. Something that would decay faster and not be so over powering on recordings. These fit the bill nicely, the Transition Ride sounds and feels a lot like my K Custom Dry except it has a very musical wash if I want to crash on it. The hi-hats are really cool sounding, not bright but a real nice closed hi-hat sound. The Extra-Dry Thin crash is one of those cymbals that to me when I play it by itself just sounds bad, but then, when you play it with a full set it sounds a little better, and when you play it with a full band it's pretty much magic. It opens fast and a little trashy (in the most musical sense) and then promptly decays. The Extra-Thin Crash is the go to cymbal when you want a sweet wash of sound to fill up the music. They're great cymbals but do your research and make sure you know what you need and want from your cymbals.

Unique and Awesome

Yeah, bought these to be our studio's "house" cymbals. They record incredibly well. The hats sit great in the mix and don't bleed into the snare mic as bad as a crisper set. The first drummer that played that extra thin crash liked it so much he almost stole the darn thing. Just watch your mic placement on that because the drummer is going to be on that crash a LOT. This set was soooooo worth the investment.

Perfect Solution

Needed to find a solution to the harsh cymbal sounds on our stage, but not take away from the purpose that cymbals have in our worship set. This package sound amazing and is dark enough that the vocal mic's aren't affected as much. Our drummer and I are very satisfied, would highly recommend this set!

Great Cymbals

Love these cymbals! Every cymbal I've ever owned sounded like ordinary...well, cymbals. These are unique, slightly trashy, dry and bring new light to playing. In a recording setting, the hats aren't too crunchy and sit nicely in your mix. The 18" crash has a beautiful short decay, the transition ride can be bashed yet has nice stick definition, and the 20" inch thin crash has a huge sound. If you're looking for a set of cymbals that sound different from the standard cymbal sound, get these!
