Meinl Classics Custom Dark Trash Stack Cymbal Pair 18" delivers an aggressive trashy tone perfect for heavy genres. Consisting of two medium-weight cymbals, this stack creates intense, chaotic overtones when struck. The top cymbal has a raw, unlathed finish while the bottom cymbal has a traditional lathed finish, allowing the cymbals to resonate fully when crashed. With an 18" size, these trash stacks cut through loud instrumentation. The Meinl Classics Custom Dark Trash Stack Cymbal Pair 18" is ideal for drummers seeking a loud, gritty sound.

Raw, Unlathed Finish Provides Aggressive Tone

The top cymbal has an unlathed, raw finish that produces abrasive, distorted overtones. When crashed, the unlathed finish results in a harsh, trashy sound suited for heavy music. The raw finish also allows the cymbals to open up over time, developing a more complex tone. For drummers wanting an instantly abrasive trash stack, the Meinl Classics Custom Dark Trash Stack Cymbal Pair 18" delivers.

Medium Weight Offers Controllable Response

With a medium weight, these trash stacks are responsive yet controllable. The medium weight allows drummers to crash the stacks loudly without an unruly, uncontrollable wash of sound. The weight also provides enough volume for cutting through loud bands. For versatility, the medium-weight Meinl Classics Custom Dark Trash Stack Cymbal Pair 18" works well as a main crash or as an accent during drum fills.

18" Size Cuts Through Dense Mixes

At 18" in size, the Meinl Classics Custom Dark Trash Stack Cymbal Pair produces a loud, far-reaching tone that remains audible in dense band mixes and live settings. The large size also provides an expansive spread of sound, enveloping the drum kit in layers of trashy overtones when crashed. For any genre where volume and aggression are essential like metal or hard rock, the sizable Meinl Classics Custom Dark Trash Stack Cymbal Pair 18" is ideal.

Additional Features and Specifications

With a brilliant unlathed finish, these German-made B20 bronze cymbals are highly durable. The included felt pads prevent the cymbals from slipping when stacked. Backed by a two-year manufacturer's warranty.
