Comments about Meinl Generation X Signature Benny Greb Trash Hat Hi-Hat Effects Cymbal:
When i first got them, I thought they felt cheap; Benny's video shows him bending the 12" top hat, and I should have paid attention to that. However, once I set them up and played for a few days, I've concluded it was a great purchase for the money. Each sounds decent on its own, but I prefer them set up as a single "accent" cymbal, 12" on top of the 14". The sound cuts through everything; a sharp attack that can be soft enough to sound like a loose hi-hat, or a small china with little sustain - just what I was looking for. If you're creative, or like having sounds that turn heads, these are well worth the purchase
