I've been listening to Meinl Pure Alloy cymbals and liking them. The 15 hats and 18 crash sound killer to me. They are priced at $325 and $239 for the crash...I'll get them for less at local shop in New Orleans. Anyone have Opinions about them?
I have a full set. 15" hats, 18" and 20" crashes, and 22" ride. When I got them I was looking for something akin to the Paiste 2002's, but not as bright. To me these have that bright sound but have more lower end body than the 2002's. Nothing against 2002's, but the pure alloy was more of what I was looking for. That said, I like them a lot. They speak quickly. Here's a Meinl video demonstrating them:
