Videos Matt Garstka's 20" Meinl Equilibrium China More Meinl hosted by The Orlando Drummer Adam Tuminaro Videos Matt Garstka\'s 20\ Matt Garstka's goal for this cymbal was to have all the aspects of the cymbal in the right proportions. The chaw-sound of the cymbal, the trashiness, dryness and the cut that Matt was looking for are all balanced in his Meinl Signature China. Your host, Adam Tuminaro aka The Orlando Drummer gives you a demo and detailed explanation on the idea and the production process of the Equilibrium, which is one of the few china's out there that is not too overpowering when you hit it.

Equilibrium is the condition of a system in which all competing influences are balanced.

Matt Garstka's 20" Meinl Equilibrium China

"It has a touch of dryness, is mildly trashy, isn't overbearingly cutting, and comes with plenty of Chaw! This china works in large capacity venues and in small clubs."
- Matt Garstka
