Traditionally Crafted for a Classic Sound

When you're a company as radical as Meinl Cymbals, a push toward the traditional can be a refreshing twist. So it is with the Meinl Pure Alloy 20" ride. This cymbal looks to the past with a fully lathed playing surface and traditional craftsmanship, for a presentation and response that skews towards yesterday's rides. Its medium weight affords the Meinl Pure Alloy ride a delicate balance of attack and sustain, for definition that won't get swallowed up by a band and a dynamic openness as you start to dig in — all with the complex characteristics you've come to expect from Meinl.

Traditional, fully lathed surface

Fully lathed surfaces are a big departure from the raw, earthy cymbals Meinl is best known for today. This process gives all Meinl Pure Alloy rides a higher wash-to-stick ratio — more like traditional cymbals — for a sweet, lingering sustain.

Crafted by drummers for drummers

Meinl's cymbal innovation stems from both a deep love for the craft and a desire to provide drummers with the sounds they're buzzing about. Whether you're into the traditional Pure Alloy series or the modern-dry Byzance line.
