It seems like Meinl goes after the German Wunderkinds like Lang (ok, Austrian, close enough) and Minneman. What does that Benny Greb guy play?
I'm sure it has more to do with distribution and marketing than anything else. I've said it a million times on here, my favorite cymbal/drum company would be the one that would pay me to play their gear! But for now I guess I'll have to "settle" with Yamaha and Zildjian...oh darn.
