What We Think

If you’re looking for a crash cymbal with a quick yet buttery attack and an abundance of dark, then this is the cymbal for you! Large hammer marks, low weight, wide lathing, and a sandblasted finish give Meinl’s Vintage Crash Cymbals a fast and complex tone with plenty of lush warmth. These cymbals are full of artistic character and provide the perfect accents to fill sonic space within styles including funk, hip-hop, and fusion.

Manufacturer's Description from Meinl

The combination of a sandblasted surface, big hammer marks and thin material enable an outstanding dry wash in a low frequency range with a buttery, soft attack. Exceptional crashes!

About Manufacturer


Only MEINL uses 6 different alloys for crafting cymbals, which is more than any other cymbal maker is using today. Because of that, we are able to offer the widest selection of basic cymbal sound characteristics available. Striving for the realization of any possible sound idea makes it necessary to have this diversity, the background in and knowledge of all those different materials.

Constantly trained and highly qualified employees master all challenges within our production team. Most of them are drummers themselves! And if someone is not and starts working for us, we pay for the drum lessons. They know why they are doing what they do, and don’t consider it just another 9 to 5 job. It’s that dedication which makes the difference you can hear!
