Start your set off on the right note. The Meinl HCS Series is proof positive that you can get high quality sounds from entry level, value-priced cymbals. That means a lot to beginning and intermediate drummers who are serious about perfecting their skills and those who enjoy experimenting with different sound nuances.
The HCS China cymbals have a brash and explosive sound that virtually leaps off the cymbal to help you create special musical effects for a more experienced sound. In addition to offering an exceptional sound personality and range, the HCS China has a bright attack with deep, dark and trashy undertones. And its exceptional cut is able to break through the swelling volume of guitars without missing a beat.
A combination of good looks and stellar performance, the outstanding, German made HCS Chinas are made of MS63 alloy for a warm, harmonic and balanced sound. The high-tech computerized manufacturing process gives each HCS China the precision sound characteristics and reliable consistency Meinl cymbals are known for. It's this unwavering attention to detail and dedication to state of the art crafting techniques that help set Meinl Chinas apart from the rest.
