Price too good to be true?

Not to sure if anyone is still watching the thread, but the cymbals arrived yesterday, new and clean, both sides of the hats (though I didn't flip to the unfinished hats for the picture) and I couldn't be happier with them.





I don't know if I would have even gone for it without hearing from you guys first so thank you again for the advice.

Re: Price to good to be true?

Thanks for the replies everyone,

My wife and I shop off Amazon almost exclusively, and we've never had an issue with anything they've sent. Call Meinl, and ask them about it.
Yeah I do the same, brought a few instruments and never had any problems but not cymbals yet.

are you sure it's not just one cymbal of the set? I know certain websites do that.

Also isn't every pair of hihats reversible?

Yeah that is a possibly, the description isn't clear at all haha.

These ones specifically have 2 different finishes on each hat to give a different tone when they are reversed, seemed like a good set to buy.

Product Description
Box Contains
1 x MEINL B13SH-B



looks like you need to buy two.

I checked another cymbal page with something a more regular price and it said the same thing, or nothing about it. You could be right though.

"Product Features

-Swift, delicate, accurate, powerful, mystical, intense, scary"

...are we describing a unicorn on bath salts or cymbals?
Haha I know, thats half the reason I asked on here, the description is all over the place...

If I get them and it is one cymbal or something else wrong, worst comes to worst I can return them and get my money back I guess.

I'll decide later I think, thanks for your help everyone, I really appreciate it.

Hey guys, I was searching around Amazon today and stumbled across these Meinl Byzance Serpent Hi-Hats:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00716CQ8K/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

I've wanted them for a while because I liked the idea that both sides were reversible, but for that price (£100 lower than anywhere I've seen them) could there be something off about it? I had a search around the web and couldn't find any information on a possible scam/fake cymbals/etc. Also, it says its dispatched and sold by Amazon so not a 3rd party seller I think.

Sorry if this seems like a pointless question, I was wondering if any of you have any experience with this sort of thing before I spend a load of money on something that might not be legitimate haha.

Cheers
