    What does everyone think of Meinl's Soundcaster Fusion series? I recently got to play them at my local drum shop and they sound amazing! The crashes are warm and colorful and the hats are some of the best I've heard. The splashes and chinas are fantastic as well. The only one I didn't like was the ride. It didn't seem to have enough oomf if you know what I mean, even the "powerful" ride.

    i like a ride with a more intimate sound, kinda like when people play guitar with their fingers when they dont have long nails.

    The Mb20 Pure Metal ride is without a doubt the best ride I've heard in my life. Too bad I'll never own it b/c it's about $500 lol.

    i only got one Meinl Cymbal atm.
    Its a 10" "Classic" Splash
    Its a great splash and the "Classics" range is a good first step up into bronze alloy cymbals for begginers, not too expensive but quality sound

    HCS is the cheapest series by Meinl because it's made of brass, not bronze. All the cymbals I believe are less than $100. If you're thinking of getting some, I'd say at least get MCS instead because they're made of bronze.

    They're brass. So not really gigging material or anything. I'd upgrade ASAP, even if it's just to mid-level like Paiste Alphas or Sabian XS20s. But you can get really cheap pro-level cymbals on Craigslist. My friend just picked up an Zildjian A Series Rock Ride for 80 bucks. I look there basically every day, just to keep up with what's available. It's a good way to stay on top of things. But if all you can afford is Sabian B8s and Zildjian ZBTs, I'd wait to upgrade and just save up for some good ones.

    Agreed but at least B8's and ZBT's are made of bronze. But yeah, def. save up for mid level at the very least. Upgrade the hats and ride first, then crashes.

    A local shop just started carrying Meinls--boy, was I impressed. I've seen their stuff online and thought it looked great and had good sound clips. The Byzance Dark hi-hats were unbelievable, and the all the Byzance line that they had--crashes and rides--was amazing. They had a China--MB20, I think--that also was great.

    I've been a big fan of Meinl for awhile now. I own 2 MB20 series crashes and I love them. For you guys a few posting earlier do yourself a favor stay away from entry level brass cymbals like Silken cymbals. Your wasting your money. I would urge you to look at Wuhan brand cymbals instead. Handmade B20 bronze cymbals fastly superior to entry level stuff from the big companies. Both brands offer newbies a chance to use REAL cymbals instead of entry level crap.

    I've recently bought myself a 20" One Of A Kind Ride. Wow, that thing blew me away...still does every time I play it. I'll definately be looking into more Meinl cymbals as I start to go through my plan to part-ex and upgrade my current ones.

    I recently purchased soundcasters custom series hats. Loud and open sound. More on the dark side I think. Very nice

    I bought a cheap entry level pack of the Meinl MCS cymbals.

    I REALLY like the 20" ride but I think I would like a thinner set of hats and crash. They will do me fine for now.

    I've been looking into the Benny Greb Sand Ride. All the reviews I've read haven't had one downside for it and it's versatile, which is good because I play classic rock and metal. Anyone on here own/played one?
