Overview

The MCS series from Meinl Cymbals are precision crafted in Germany. They offer a wide array of sound options to satisfy the diverse styles of today's music. So whether you are playing rock, metal, pop, R&B, etc., these cymbals are well-suited to integrate into your setup.

The Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China contains 14" medium hi-hats, a 16" medium crash, a 20" medium ride, plus a free Filter China. These Meinl cymbals are all specially harmonically matched for the most musical sound. Created with the B8 alloy of 92 percent copper, 8 percent tin (plus traces of silver) for bright, rich, laser-clear sound quality.

The Free 14" Filter China cymbal provides a fast, sharp, and almost sinister sound. Quieter than most China cymbals, it has a short sustain due to the waved edge. Most remarkably, its look is achieved by a capillary fine lathing process that sets the bell apart from the rest of the cymbal's surface. This highly technical lathing process results in a clearer and more projecting bell sound.

A deep lathing groove is applied on to the cymbal's surface, remarkably reducing its thickness and weight. This results in a quicker response that enables the sound to unfold much easier. Along with precise hammering patterns, the new Meinl MCS cymbals set the standard in this price range.

Amazing Sound and Durability!

By John

from Decatur, Alabama

Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

I have had this pack for about 2 months now and I am very satisfied with them. I play very rough on my cymbals and if your a rough player you don't have to worry these won't break on you anytime soon. The only thing is the Filter China sounds its just a Traditional China is much more durable and the sound is much better from a Traditional China. So 5/5

Excellent entry level pack

By Jay

from Portland, OR

Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

These cymbals are great for an entry level pack. I've heard Sabian B8s and Zildjian ZBTs and I must say these Meinl MCS cymbals are the way to go when looking at cymbals in this price range. The hi hats are great, i used to have B8s and I love the sound of these much more. The crash is awesome, love the punch it delivers. The ride is OK, it's a little loud and rings for quite awhile after you strike it, but it's still good. What really sets this pack apart from the other entry level packs is the free china. It absolutely rules. Definitely recommend this pack to beginner/intermediate drummers.

amazing

By Brandon

from Cypress, TX

Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

I bought these cymbals about five months ago to have some cymbals to start with, and they are some pretty good cymbals. The china is a great cymbal. By far my favorite in this pack(so i hit it alot). I'm a pretty hard hitter and the china hasn't cracked at all. The high hats are pretty good to, i love the crash cymbal. Its really loud and crisp, and warm. Its hard to explain. The ride is the only thing that i don't like as much. It sounds good, but its really hard to fine that sweet spot on the bell. I recomend the cymbals to anyone just starting out. Can't go Wrong with MEINL Cymbals.

By Drummerboy22

from CA

Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

Well the ride cymbal is really weak on the bell and such but ill prob get a louder one. The crash is great and the china is pretty cool even tho its real small. The hi hats are good but i mixed them with my others. Good sounding, a lil hard to mix in with others cymbals but there good.

Excellent cymbals for the excellent price

By Andrew

from Bagota, New Jersey

Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

These cymbals are wonderful. I just got them for Christmas. They sound brilliant, very loud and vibrant. I've only had them for not even a day and I am grateful for my cymbal decisions. I chose between the PST3, ZBT, B8, and this set. I chose this set because it was labelled under the Intermediate/Pre-Professional tier. These cymbals are amazing and you cannot go wrong without a box. These cymbals are glossy and shiny once opened and out of the box. These cymbals are amazing quality. The only sad part about them is that I recieved a regular 14" Meinl China. It (I believe so) was and is not a Generation X Filter China... just a regular Filter China. But anyways, it still sounds great.

Great Cymbals at a Great Price

By Ronald Brown

from Wilmington, DE

Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

So I ordered these cymbals because I truly wanted Paistes but the price of what I wanted was just a lil too high and to me paistes have the best sound it's like when you hit them they sound like they are being played in stereo. So I went on a search for some cymbals that wouldn't be too pricey but would give me that sound. I first looked into the zildjians but to be honest I didn't like the sound of most of them outside of the K and A series the rest of them to me sound like you're hitting a trash can especially the zbt, zxt, and zht series. I then looked at the sabians and they were better than the zildjians in my eyes but again to get the sound I was looking for and I would've had to buy the HHX series to get the sound I was looking for still which is still way out of my price range and AAX series was close as well. So I went to the meinl series and started at the bottom with the HCS series looked at those and they were good but I wanted something a lil higher up but didn't want to have to spend crazy so I checked out the MCS series and it just blew my mind that they sounded so good for the price. And the fact that they are harmonically balanced really makes a difference. The sounds all match and it just sounds extraordinary. And the hi-hats they are killer. I play mostly hip-hop and r&b and funk and these things are crazy. I took to rehearsal yesterday and everybody couldn't believe how good these new cymbals I had sounded but what really blew their mind was the price I paid. So I will say this if you want a great cymbal on a budget then get these asap.

yes

By Lennon

from Long Beach Ca

Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

\AWESOME!!!!! cymbals are strong and look great. Hi hats are really loud, but its alright. The crash has a bright sound. The ride is sweet, but it does seem to ring for a good amount of time before it fades out. And the free filter china is really cool, it looks gorgeous and sounds sweet. Meinl mcs cymbals are the greatest German export since sausage and the HOFF!!!!!

Best buy ever!

By Christopher Kirma

from Scottsdale, Arizona

Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

In all honesty these cymbals are amazing, i was contemplating whether or not to buy them after I heard them on the Meinl website. The Hi-hats sounds really dark and deep sounding over my speakers, but hearing these things in real life make a completely different sound come to to life in these cymbals. I made the analogy that if Brisk the soda, were to fashion itself into some kind of metal, then these cymbals would be it! They are so crisp and clean, for the money these things are amazing!

Great Cymbals

By Joshua Husted

from Larksville, PA

Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

These are my first ever cymbals I bought. The cymbals sound great for the price. I've owned these cymbals for just over a month now and my 16" Crash has about 5 cracks in it and one of them is progressively getting bigger. But I am 99% sure that this is only because of my aggressive/hard hitting play style or my striking technique since I am a beginning drummer. So for those that play hard and use their crash(s) often, I'd recommend purchasing one of many 17"-18" medium crash(s) from Meinl. Every other cymbal I have purchased in the MCS series has been very durable, and sound great. The filter china sounds awesome and it's a great addition to any kit. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. It's a great starter pack, and I personally love anything involving Meinl because their products are some of the best around for drummers. I highly recommend these cymbals to any drummer!

Comments about Meinl MCS Cymbal Pack with Free Filter China:

Bought to upgrade my 11 yr old grandson's acoustic drum set. He really likes to hammer them when playing old tunes like "Stairway to Heaven" and "The Immigrant Song". Makes him sound like a professional. Quite impressive.
