Meinl Cymbals Soundcaster Custom Medium Crash Cymbal
Meinl Cymbals have been popular in Europe for years and starting to appear more in the U.S. (metal drummer setups in particular) because they make many powerful, durable cymbals. They also have many lines of cymbals appropriate for all genres such as the 18" Soundcaster Custom Medium Crash. This is a medium cymbal with a brilliance which helps it cut through the texture along with a high pitch which also helps it stand out.
This cymbal speaks quickly with an average sustain along with a polished finish that looks great, particularly in a metal kit setup. While many top metal drummers use this cymbal, it’s also well-suited for other genres because of its medium weight and warmth. While this cymbal is available in many different sizes, I prefer the sound of the 18 inch option.
