Sings with chiming, metallic sustain.
This 8" high bell by Meinl has a sound with a very long sustain and a dry, pingy, brilliant stick response. Artists such as Thomas Lang and Benny Greb use an 8" Classics Bell as the bottom cymbal for their famous right foot hi-hat (along with a regular 8" splash as the top).
Meinl Classics Series cymbals prove their worth with matched sounds and outstanding quality. But moreover, Classics cymbals are unparalleled in the semi-professional range with regard to their extensive selection of different models.
