bumpercardriving asked: Those cymbals look awesome. How do they sound?
The hihat is a medium so it’s slightly heavier than what I had in mind but the smaller size balances it I guess. They’re trashy, dark, quick decay. Almost like a stack when very tight and get a very nice washy sound when open. Very versatile hats.
The ride is higher pitched and pretty pingy. It’s even more quiet than I expected, which I was looking for, but I’m not sure how it’d go against a very loud guitar amp without a mic for itself. I love going at it with small tip jazz sticks, it makes the cymbal sound really bright and it has wonderful stick definition so each hit sounds great. I read lots of reviews previously that the bell was it’s weakest part and I have to disagree. I love this bell. Not over the top window-shaking loud.
Most of these are personal opinions though. Try meinlcymbals.com or mycymbal.com to listen to audio/video samples.

Finally have something to show. This is my practice as I couldn’t play a real set in an apartment.
DW practice set, Meinl 13” extra dry hats and a 20” vintage ride.
Everything you see in the set was bought used.
nofuckingfaith asked: Hey man! I myself love drums too, what kind of cymbals you looking to get? peace!
I have fallen completely in love with Meinl’s Byzance series. There’s just so much to choose from in that line.
I live in an apartment where volume is a big issue so I’m going with quiet cymbals; I’m looking at their Dark, Extra Dry and Vintage lines.
So far it seems I’ll get a Byzance Dark Ride, a Vintage Ride and Hi-Hats are still up for grabs. The Extra Dry is putting up a fight against the Vintage.
