This cymbal, designed by Meinl in cooperation with Thomas Lang, offers drummers a cutting, biting accent to their sound. With a fast, sharp and sinister edge, these Meinl Filter chinas explode and then move out of the way for whatever lick might come next. They are quieter than most china cymbals, and have a short sustain due to the waved edge.

Meinl's Generation X Series offers a full range of special effect sounds previously not available. Years of input have led to the FX9 alloy and the unique shapes and configurations. Fast, explosive attack with quick decay make Gen X cymbals fit where other cymbals won't. Add a crazy new tone color to your setup today.

Meinl Generation X Filter China

By Cody marchant

from Oklahoma City

Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

I Have an 8" and love it. Really fast sharp sound. I use Pearl 2,000 series hardware and i can flip my plastic cup washers to stressed or relaxed. I notice when you have it stressed the cymbal make's an odd rattling sound but when unstressed make's a much more perfect sound just like that of the sound clip on Meinl's Website. I plan on getting more in other sizes. great effect cymbals.

Very Pleased

By Chris

from Hennepin, IL

Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

I am more than pleased with the 8 inch Filter X China I purchased. It can handle whatever you throw at it and has an awesome trash sound that stands out and then decays very fast. I am looking forward to buying other sizes.

Epic and Perfect

By Dr.Gore

from Tacoma. Wa

Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

I bought the 14" model to use as a trash hat combo for stacatto breakdowns in metal and more heavy groove parts. It worked amazingly well in its ability to cut through the mix and have a quick decay that didnt distort the feel of what I play as well as the band. I then decided to pick up the 10" and 12" models to replace my splashes when they cracked. I would highly recommend these two cymbals for their brilliance and cut in fast fills and complex rhythms. They are sharp, distinct and almost mechanical in a sense. These are like the popcorn snare of mini chinas in their sensitivity levels. Cant wait to get more sizes!

A different sound

By ibernalq

from Lima, Peru

Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

I got an 8" and there are many things to say: 1) This china sounds very different to a normal one. 2) Its not so loud (what its not bad, depends on what are you looking for) 3) Many people say this breaks easily.. I suppose its so because many players try to get loud sounds from it, and play it tooo hard. 4) Its fast, because its wave edge 5) It has a "smooth trash sound", that I like... 6) Looks nice... for me I recommend it, not only the 8" one... I also played the 14 inch. and sounds good too.. many famous drummers play it..

good china, cracks fast but easy to fix.

By Brianaldo fischer

from chicago, illinois

Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

about 1 year ago when i first got this china i loved everything about it, it sounded absolutely wonderful, but within 3-4 months i found atleast 4 cracks, 2 of the cracks were about 1 inch, the ohthers were about half an inch. BUT, i then cut it down shorter and it sounded great ever since.

    Great as a stack

    By Lou Scannon

    from Baton Rouge, LA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

    I bought this cymbal (12") to use as a stack with an old 10" A Custom splash cymbal I had lying around. The combination if the two are great. A perfect trashy/washy sound that really cuts through and decays almost immediately. They cymbal on its own is not for my taste, however.

    Great cymbal

    By Kurtis

    from Helena, Al.

    Comments about Meinl Generation X Filter China Cymbal:

    I bought the 14 inch cymbal about 2 years ago. It took a BEATING. I use china cymbals like a second ride or crash. After playing multiple shows, the cymbal finally cracked where the filter holes are.
