Meinl 14" Heavy Hammered Hihat demo by The Orlando Drummer A heavy but highly articulated cut-through Hihat Meinl 14\ Literally Heavy, is how The Orlando Drummer describes the new 14" Heavy Hammered Hihats from Meinl. This is a Hihat that has serious explosion and very good articulation that cuts through on any level. Primarily you think it would be used for Rock, Metal, Prog Rock and any other harder genre. Meinl also gives the use for music styles like Pop, Fusion, Funk, R&B, Reggae, and of course for use in the studio if you are looking for that type of sound.

The Brilliant cymbals actually are very reflective because they are polished up to six times to get that high gloss finish. It is Meinl's way to create this unique appearance of of the Brilliant cymbals. Check out all the specs below the video and more Meinl products that the company launched for 2018.
