    Comments about Meinl Classics Custom Dark Pack Bonus Box Set with FREE 18" Dark Crash:

    I decided on these based on looks and video demonstrations. Couldn't be happier! Great sound from all of them. I bought this cymbal pack and additional 19" crash as well. I also splurged for the 10" splash.

    The hats have the best 'chick' sound I've ever played. Very satisfying. Great wash when played open.

    The crashes are all superb! Played soft to medium they all are very nuanced with no offensive overtones. Dark, but really nice. When played a little harder they are LOUD. The combination of the 16", 18" and 19" are really nicely matched. The 19" is a very ride-able cymbal as well.

    The ride is a gem. Solid bell with great, cutting 'ping'. The body plays sweetly with great main tone and beautiful, sustained undertones. The last 1-1/2 of the edge is so interesting, I can't really describe it!

    This is a perfectly matched set of sounds, IMO.. Meinl got it right. They look superb, too! Very sharp in person. The photos do not do them justice. I can't wait to get the China type!

    I've been playing for 30+ years and have been through the "mid level" offerings of all the major companies. This is my first experience with Meinl, but not my last!

      Comments about Meinl Classics Custom Dark Pack Bonus Box Set with FREE 18" Dark Crash:

      These cymbals are great! I have small and bright sounding drum room. These compliment it, other than them being LOUD when you lay into them. The hats are what drew me in. Very present, and full, without the high brittle wash you get from other brands. The crashes sound good, along with the ride. The bell tones from the whole set are beautiful. They're designed to cut threw a heavy mix, which I will be testing soon. I have no doubt they'll sound killer. The only thing I'd change is adding that little cymbal ring from Meinl that sits on top.

        Comments about Meinl Classics Custom Dark Pack Bonus Box Set with FREE 18" Dark Crash:

        I most;y play rock, punk, and metal and these cymbals provide enough response and attack for that. The only thing weird about mine is that on the ride cymbal it says 20" crash instead of ride but it's still great.

        Comments about Meinl Classics Custom Dark Pack Bonus Box Set with FREE 18" Dark Crash:

        I bought the cymbols as a surprise to my drummer son. He was soooo excited when I gave them to him. After being able to bang on them for a week he said they are awesome. He has a performance tonight, his band is excited to see what a change they bring to the stage.

        Comments about Meinl Classics Custom Dark Pack Bonus Box Set with FREE 18" Dark Crash:

        I'VE been using these cymbals for a week now and I really like them . There a bit on the loud side. The hi hats are the best out of the whole kit, I don't really like the ride cymbal because it is too ringy but other than that it's a nice pair of cymbals.

          Super attractive look. Great dark, heavy sound. German made! Love 'em. The 19" crash doubles as a ride for me.
