What We Think

Living up to their name, these cymbals are extremely dry, with low-pitched, trashy sounds and short sustain. The raw unlathed surfaces have extensive hand hammering suggesting that their sound might be loud and fierce, but in reality, the Extra Dry series reveals its dark, earthy tones and comes to life when played at lower volumes. Lush complexities without the high bright brittle frequencies that come with modern cymbals. Depending on your musical application, this 22" cymbal will easily be at home as a ride cymbal or a crash cymbal. 2245 grams

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!
