Lessons from playing Classics Custom cymbals

Clean, cutting and positively controllable

Made for one purpose? Yes and no.

Rock and metal drummers are going to have an easy time falling for Classics Custom—they are rock cymbals for heavier players.

So why are some of these "rock cymbals" showing up in funk, alternative and even jazz players' setups?

Think about a race car humming at 25 mph down a crowded main street.

You KNOW the potential for incredible speed is there, but somehow even more allure is created when that power can be harnessed—this is Classics Custom. Couple that with a huge selection, and it's not uncommon to find Classics Custom stacks or trash crashes making appearances in unexpected places.

With this level of dynamic ability in your cymbals, something happens.

You sit comfortably on top of the mix with some serious cut but without overpowering with out-of-control sustain. The best part? Even after a long set, you're still ENERGIZED.

Dial up the bright

Yes—those shimmering and clean surfaces are exactly how the cymbals sound. No mystery here. Their satisfying, clean character is met with a healthy dose of definition and brightness to hang with any mix. From quick splash fills to heavy bell riding, your ideas are going to be heard.

The cymbals do this because of:

  • The use of B10 bronze — a solid, reliable and loud alloy that doesn't sound choked when you lay into it, but can sing at lower volumes too
  • Pinpoint hammering and lathing — their reflective surfaces are fully finished and smoothed down to perfection for effortless, clean stick definition

Rock solid, crisp hihats

From clean, expressive double and single stroke rolls on top when closed to intense crashes on the side when played wide open, Classics Custom brilliant hihats are both highly precise and full of fire.

These hats have a surprisingly wide dynamic range with the feel to match it.

When energy calls, these hats jump to life and chop through loud mixes without you having to extrude your sound.


Rides that shine bright

Glorious, clear articulation is a great way to sum up Classics Custom rides, but they also deliver an array of sound and feel that envelopes your playing to give your voice a lift.

Classics Custom rides give back more than what you put into them because of the way they wash underneath their diamond-like stick response. The combination of a shimmering undertow of controlled wash and powerful definition allows you to easily lift your band and music.


Accent cymbals

Let's talk about inflection. Whether you're a stand-up comedian or a drummer, communicating it is key to a great performance. Even with the volume at ELEVEN, nuance must charge through.

And when the neighboring stack of amps begs to differ, you need the right tool to throw a little zest into the impenetrable mix.

We offer a variety of splashes, trash splashes, trash stacks, trash crashes and chinas within Classics Custom to give you plenty of options to outfit your kit with accent cymbals that can speak up.

Description

Classics Custom cymbals from MEINL are designed to cut above the roar of guitars, doing most of the work for you so you don''t have to play as hard to be heard. MEINL utilizes a B10 bronze alloy to make these cymbals pack a loud and bright punch with rich musical tones. The Classics Custom 18-inch china delivers an immediate trashy response with mid-ranged, shimmering overtones. This china has excellent crashability with dominant mids and a medium sustain. Classics Custom cymbals are recommended for most styles of music, including Metal, Rock, Pop, Fusion, and Studio. The MEINL cymbal cleaner (model# MCCL) works great to restore and maintain shine on these brilliant finish cymbals.
