  • Great Balanced Tone...

    As reviewed by Angel Salas on 6/29/2010

    I bought both the 16 and 18 inch crashes from my local Guitar Center about a month ago and I am enjoying everything about em. The 16 inch crash is both dark and cutting, with a quick decay. The 18 inch is is very slick, and it has a shimmering crash with a very tasty low end tone. I have matched these crashes to the Zildjian A Custom, and the K Custom Dark Crashes and thy are a clear winner. In both price and tone. They cut through better and make for cleaner playing, no matter what style you play, these cymbals will get the job done.

  • Best crashes ever!!!

    As reviewed by mario ibarra on 2/24/2012

    First of all these cymbals(the whole dark line) are visually stunning. Second, when you get to play them, they speak in so many colorful tones that you can't stop playing them. When I first put the 17" dark crash and 13" fast hats on my kit, I was re-inspired and came up with all kinds of new patterns. I couldn't stop playing. The amount of different tones that come out of these crashes is amazing. You can use them as a ride,due to the dark tone you will get lots of clear stick definition. Third, I put an inverted mini china on top of the 17" crash and that just opened up a whole new pallet of sounds. I've played other major brands of cymbals for over 20 years and I've never been satisfied with cymbal choices like I am now. Meinl is the new king!!!

  • Undeniable Coolness!

    As reviewed by Captain Adderol on 9/2/2011

    Picked up the 18 inch crash along with the 20 inch ride in this line about three weeks ago and I'm so in love! The crash is extremely responsive, with dark, cool, shimmering tones and a very even decay. I'm currently procuring the entire line of these. the effect is easily controlled by the intensity of the strike with these. At low volume playing they are smooth and cool, at higher volume they will flat out rip your head off. also, the look of these is very pleasing...seems everyone notices them. i for one have never been a fan of the look of the raw cymbal...but these have great personality. Stunning sound, stunning look, and great price. I'm a byzance convert for sure! I highly recommend these lids for any musical style, you won't be sorry. Word of advice- Each of these cymbals has their own personality...purchase them in store...and actually play them...then purchase the ones you played...these cymbals will give you your own distinct sound. Love 'em!!!!!
