Special Finishing Process

Each of the cymbals in the Meinl Classics Custom Dark range undergo a special finishing process which serves to create the dark, complex tone and clear, cutting nature of the range.

Not only responsible for the distinctive cymbal sound, this process also provides a strikingly different black aesthetic that's filled with shimmering lathe stripes.

With a look that's far from traditional, these hi-hats utilises a combination of lathing and wide, deep hammering to give them a warmer character that brilliantly complements their aggressive, attacking tone.

The high-pitched stick articulation delivers precise cut, while the strong chick sound offers loud, volume and the aggressive attack provides instant impact.
