Meinl Classics Custom Dark 8 inch Splash Cymbal Key Features:

  • Fast Attack
  • Short Sutain
  • Dark Undertones
  • Striking Aesthetic

Standout Aesthetic

All of the cymbals in the Meinl Classics Custom Dark range undergo a special finishing process which works to create the dark and complex tone and cutting clarity that characterise this range.

Offering a unique twist on the traditional cymbal aesthetic, the special finishing process creates a cymbal with a rich dark appearance that stands out from the norm.

The widely spaced deep hammering and additional lathing, not only produce a striking striped aesthetic, they also help to round out the tone of the splash cymbal to give it a warmer mix of sound in addition to the explosive response.

Explosive Attack

Opening instantly with a super-fast attack, this 8 inch Custom Dark splash delivers an instant burst of accenting tone.

Jumping into action at the slightest touch, this splash offers the perfect way to add emphasis and embellishment to your sound the instant you need it.

Dark Undertones

Once this 8 inch splash has burst into action it quickly opens into a sound filled with dark undertones.

Offering a brilliant combination of precise, cutting clarity and dark tone, this splash adds a punchy flash of accent.

Ideal for loud, live settings when you need to cut through the mix, this splash delivers piercing dark tone to slice seamlessly through the loudest of guitar sounds.

Short Sustain

In addition to the fast attack, this Classics Custom Dark splash also has a super short sustain.

Fading as quickly as it appears, the fast sustain serves to produce a sound that's neat and compact to deliver flashes of musical punctuation.


Delivering clear, cutting attack, short sustain and dark tone, this 8 inch splash cuts through the mix to impart sharp, compact accents.

The black aesthetic, deep hammering and wide lathing provide the cymbal with a stand out look and a warm character that perfectly complements the explosive sound.
