These cymbals combine musicality and volume in a range of medium-heavy and heavyweight models for maximum projection. Slightly dark and completely in your face, Mb20 is a great example of how we are repurposing hand hammered cymbals for today’s music.
The Mb20 hi-hat models have been designed for loud music. They are slightly heavier than the usual hi-hats, which results in a powerful sound that's dominant and cuts through any given volume.
Aggressive, powerful and loud with penetrating, energetic, open hi-hat cymbals and a cutting chick.
Meinl's Mb20 series was created for one reason—high volume. The weights are all on the heavier side for that reason. But anyone can make a loud ride cymbal, the magic with the Mb20 series is that they are still musical and they feel good to play. The cymbals are handmade in Turkey using the traditional B20 bronze alloy and then the polishing process is performed in Germany. The finish is a super brilliant finish—perfect for stage lights, and Meinl has a special two-step buffing process. The cymbals are perfect for anything loud.
