I have a set of 15/20 reg/20 light/22 light coming Wednesday. Can't wait!
Not according to Halldorl in post 22 above in response to AmazishDoes anyone know if these are being made by Diril?
Diril makes these for them in Turkey as well as the Masters line for Paiste.
And please note I also corrected the misinformation on Diril and the Paiste Masters line in earlier posts. Alas the internet has a long memory for incorrect information combined with a short memory for later corrections.I have to correct you on that one. Diril makes no cymbals for Meinl. That stopped many years ago.
Meinl have their own factory in Turkey where the Byzance series is made.
No problems making them but they are made in limited quantities making them a bit harder to come by. Tony will get some for sure.It seems Meinl is having trouble making these? The guy I order cymbals from (Tony at cymbalsonly.com) hasn't been able to get any from them.
The 22" ride is priced the same as:Nice marketing touch with the gloves, (white no less), sticks, and certification.
However, do we/I really need to pay extra for that?
No wonder the individual cost is as high for each cymbal as it is.
And, what am I going to do with 3-4 pairs of gloves,sicks that I most likely would never use, (aren't sticks as personal as the other gear we select?), and a certificate for each cymbal I purchase?
I will wait until they hit the Reverb market. In the meantime, I will stick with what I have...and save some $$
