What We Think

The Meinl 18" Classics Custom Dark china cymbal has an explosive attack with a touch of warmth. Formulated with a B10 alloy, the Classic Custom Dark series are designed for metal, rock, pop, and fusion. The dark sound qualities and a big-sized lip offer a trashy sound with short sustain that delivers cutting and quick accents.

Manufacturer's Description from Meinl

Made with B10 bronze, Classics Custom models pack a loud and bright punch that gets you heard clearly in every style of music. Designed to cut above the roar of guitars, these cymbals do most of the work for you, so you don’t have to play as hard to be heard. With great stick response on the rides and hats, you can dig in and groove, while the crashes deliver powerful accents.

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!
