10" HCS Splash


collapse expand iconDescription

The Meinl HCS Splash Cymbal 8" adds a quick burst of brightness to your drum set. Handcrafted in Germany from MS63 brass alloy, this splash cymbal produces a crisp, focused tone with lightning-fast sustain. It's the perfect filler for punching up grooves or ornamenting fills, giving drummers an easy way to expand their sonic palette. While highly affordable, the HCS Splash refuses to sound cheap or clangy thanks to Meinl's decades of experience crafting high-quality cymbals.

Cut Through the Mix With Ease

The HCS Splash's small 8" size and medium weight allow it to cut through dense mixes with clarity and ease. Its fast, shimmering response provides rhythmic punctuation without overpowering the other instruments. This high-quality splash is ideal for jazz, rock, funk, and fusion styles that call for a quick, musical splash of color.

Built to Last

Don't be fooled by the HCS Splash's budget-friendly price—this is not a flimsy beginner's cymbal. Made from durable MS63 brass alloy in Meinl's German factory, it's crafted to the same high standards as Meinl's professional lines. Even hard-hitting drummers will have trouble denting or warping this little powerhouse. An excellent upgrade over stock cymbals, the HCS Splash looks and sounds completely professional so you can focus on your playing with confidence.

Well-Balanced Tone and Appearance

The HCS Splash features a hammered surface with evenly spaced grooves that dampen unwanted overtones and produce a clean, focused tone. Its medium weight and symmetrical shape create an ideal balance of volume and sustain. Under stage lights, the splash's hammered surface shimmers, adding visual interest to your drum set. The Meinl logo is subtly engraved along the edge—a small detail that reinforces the cymbal's high-quality construction.

Expand Your Set With the Complete HCS Line

The HCS Splash is just one of many cymbals in Meinl's affordable HCS line. With crash cymbals, rides, hi-hats, Chinas, and effects cymbals, you can create a complete, professional-sounding cymbal set at an entry-level price.
