Meinl Cymbal Guide 2010

2,610 views

Published on

Founded in 1951 by Roland Meinl. As well as being one of the "big four" cymbal manufacturers (with Paiste, Zildjian and Sabian), they are noted for their fibreglass congas, and plywood gongs, which proved for many percussionists that such modern materials could be used in this musical application, and similar innovations.
