I have owned many brands of cymbals in the 45 years I have been playing. This set is not your high ends Zildjan brand that costs thousands of dollars, but they have great tone, plenty of sustain, and are great quality in the manufacturing. I recommend that you at least go to Guitar Center and listen to them before you spend a huge amount of money. I took a chance and just ordered them for my new kit and am completely satisfied with each and everyone in the set.

I have been playing for over 40 years, I have played professionally for 12 years. I bought these when I purchased a complete new kit. I purchased better drums and added better cymbals down the road. I like a deal like anyone else. and Great cymbals have become very expensive. I have recently combine a few of the HCS with the Zildjain S series. I use the 20 in med. ride, the 16 in crash, 10 in splash the 8 in bell along with the S series. The S series are louder, have a much longer sustain, crisper, but do cost more than the HSC. next on my list are the A custom.

        Comments about Meinl HCS-SCS1 Ultimate Complete Cymbal Set Pack with FREE 16-Inch Trash Crash:

        Lets be honest, most drummers play for fun and as a hobbie, not for a living, if you are like me who plays for fun and as a hobbie, this cymbals are for you. Great sound, very durable, bright sound, you cant compare this with a Byzance or a A custom, but for less than 400 bucks for 9 cymbals you cant go wrong! Great cymbals for practice and selfenjoyment, give this cymbals a try with an open mind, probably the last cymbals youll buy (for practice)
