The only line that has really spoke to me is the Sand stuff- and even then, most of it's too trashy for me. I REALLY like the 22" crash/ride though, it is super dark and has just a hint of trashy tonality to it to help it cut. Almost like saturation.
@Rolltide why are you asking? Are you looking to buy some?
That may be true, although beating ZBT's on that front is quite an accomplishment..I have no experience with Meinl's mainstream cymbals but their entry-level products are the worst I've encountered. As dreadful as Zildjian ZBT and Sabian B8 cymbals are, they are a notch better than their Meinl counterparts.
No different than any other manufacturer, I suppose. Standard messaging applies: buy used professional grade cymbals if you wish, but avoid new entry-level cymbals if you're debating between the two.
Lol doesn't look like your message made it when you posted.
I just realised you also started the left side crash thread, so I'll assume this is an off-shoot from that.
If you want to explore Meinl, I really like the sound of the Sand medium crash which only comes as an 18. It basically sounds like a K dark thin, but with just a hint of trash (similar to what I was describing with my crash/ride above).
