      Even though you might disagree...

      By Jacob

      from Dayton, OH

      Comments about Meinl Classics High Bell:

      this is better then the Zil Bel. Sure, the Zil Bel has more popularity, but after trying it out at gigs, it was much too quiet (these were small venues, so no mics). This little bell can cut through me crashing on a 22" powerful ride, and still sounds great on a ride. Plus, it's a lot more inexpensive. If you want the Zil Bel, have fun wasting $50 more dollars on something that has to be mic'd constantly.

      Best of the Classics Bells

      By Jon

      from Bloomington, IN

      Comments about Meinl Classics High Bell:

      Unlike the other 2 bells from Meinl (not including the new M-Series one), this bell has much less of a "splashy" quality, and more of a focused, high-pitched ping. It actually does work great stacked on a ride, and actually has less sustain than a Zil Bel. I highly reccommend it!

      Great Bell

      By Brian

      from Indianapolis, IN

      Comments about Meinl Classics High Bell:

      This is a great bell, especially for metal, mainly because it has its own character instead of just sounding like another ride. It's much more dry and articulate than the Zil Bel, and it's much less expensive as well. The only problem is the fact that you'd rather have it on an extra stand than putting it on your ride because it's just okay as a ride bell. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.
