MEINL

Description

The MEINL Pure Alloy Custom medium thin crash is a versatile crash cymbal made from MEINL’s proprietary B12 bronze alloy. The material gives the cymbal a shimmering combination of overtones, while the thinner weight adds a slight hint of darkness. This crash is perfect for professionals and advanced students looking for bright sound without excessive overtones.

MEINL produced the Pure Alloy Custom line in response to their players, who requested thinner models from the Pure Alloy line. The result is this line of medium-thin cymbals, made from the same B12 "Pure Alloy" bronze as the rest of the line. The alloy places these cymbals between the super-bright B8 bronze and dark B20 bronze, with the lighter weight pushing Pure Alloy Custom cymbals slightly darker on the spectrum than the regular line. The thin weight also makes the attack slightly softer, with a warmer body and faster decay. MEINL was careful to preserve the bright shimmer this series is known for, but retooled it for a new type of player. And make the line stand out, they also applied a new "smoked bronze" finish to the top and polished the bottom to a brilliant finish.
