When you’re a company as radical as Meinl Cymbals, a push toward the traditional can be a refreshing twist. So it is with the Meinl Pure Alloy 18″ crash. This cymbal looks to the past with a fully lathed playing surface and traditional craftsmanship, for a look and response that’s closer to yesterday’s cymbals. This crash has a lush wash and crisp stick response that are neither out of place for rock accents or jazz spang-a-langs. With the Meinl Pure Alloy 18″ crash, you can expect a shimmery top end and a round, velvety midrange.
Traditional, fully lathed surface
Fully lathed surfaces are a big departure from the raw, earthy cymbals Meinl is best known for today. This process gives all Meinl Pure Alloy crashes a higher wash-to-stick ratio — more like traditional cymbals — for a sweet, lingering sustain.
Crafted by drummers for drummers
Meinl’s cymbal innovation stems from both a deep love for the craft and a desire to provide drummers with the sounds they’re buzzing about. Whether you’re into the traditional Pure Alloy series or the modern-dry Byzance line, Sweetwater is confident that Meinl Cymbals has the sound you’re after.
