Splash Cymbals

Percussion

Meinl

These cymbals offer a nice balance between old-world artisanship and new world technology. They currently are available in two models; the Basic style featuring a full-bodied sound thanks to the arched profile and pronounced bell, and the Fusion style, which are extensively hammered and offer a pronounced high register due to a small bell and flat profile. Both styles are available in regular and brilliant finishes and come in sizes ranging from 6-inch ($128) to 12-inch ($176). Each cymbal is ink stamped with both a model number and a serial number for accurate identification of the instrument. Distributed by Chesbro Music Co., P.O. Box 2009, Idaho Falls, ID 83403
