Meinl Cymbal Highlights:
The classic series of Meinl cymbals is one of the best choices for novices in the drumming field. The sound of the cymbals will remain consistent, with no surprises during performances, and their superior quality to many other brands will constantly remind you of the benefits of choosing Meinl. Furthermore, though the Classic series is designed with beginners in mind, they still provide an incredible selection of models in the series.
The HCS series of Meinl cymbals is also designed with beginners in mind. The alloy used is high in copper, which makes the cymbals softer and much cheaper, while still providing a warm sound and high quality. You can choose from a set of harmonically matched cymbals or a single cymbal.
The third series of Meinl cymbals is the MCS cymbal. Designed for semi-professional drummers, the cymbals are harmonically matched and available for inexpensive prices, prepared to play as soon as you buy them. MCS is made of B8 bronze alloy, with 8% tin and 92% copper. This is softer than the alloy used by their competitors, and allows for lower pricing.
The Generation X line of cymbals by Meinl was designed by musicians for musicians. These modern sounding cymbals were developed in collaboration with drummers like Benny Greb and Johnny Rabb.
