Meinl HCS 8"/10"/12"/14"/16" Smack Stack Cymbals
The 5-piece HCS 8/10/12/14/16 Smack Stack features five discs shaped to create a distinctive sound effect. The stack can be manipulated by adjusting the tension of the cymbal stand’s wing nut. Increased tension produces a crisp attack and short decay ideal for quick accents, while a looser setting yields a longer sustain. Works well when paired with a snare drum for enhanced backbeats, or as an alternative to your snare altogether. Use all five discs for a fuller sound and increased projection, or mix and match a few sizes to find the sound that suits you best. The discs are sized 8”, 10”, 12”, 14”, and 16”.
