Meinl 18" MB20 Heavy Crash Cymbal


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.

What we think:

The Mb20 Crash Cymbal has a mix of explosive power and tone for cutting projection. Mb20s are crafted from B20 alloy (80 percent copper, 20 percent tin), just like the company’s respected Byzance ‘traditional’ range. Each cymbal in the series starts life as an individual cast blank, an expensive but quality-ensuring method that is in keeping with the Mb20s’ high-end nature. These polished beauties are perfect for anyone who wants volume and fantastic looks in one package.

Manufacturer Description:

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
