Default Cymbal Prototypes

Dear Vintage Drum Forum Members.

Since some time now I'm workin with Meinl on some new Cymbal Ideas.
You can hear and see the outcome of our work-in-progress in the video below.
For now, all of these new cymbals are concept studies only. None of them is available anywhere yet.

Still, my question to you is what you think of the sounds and looks of these two ride cymbals.
Iím looking forward to your feedback.
Would be cool to get some Feedback about it and let me know what you think!

Best Regards,
Florian

Very nice!

I esp like the way you get the Wah-Wah and Piano sounds out of them!

Did you model them after any brand/style? Turkish K's etc?

I envy you, you could make a garbage can lid sound like special sauce.
Anyway;
These cymbals are sweet sounding, but could you compare with some louder dynamics to demonstrate their relative volume with stronger drum strokes.

I wanted to create some real unique Jazzy sounding cymbals. of course of that they are not extremely loud. I wanted to have a varietey of diffferent frequencies that fits in modern and also in straight ahead jazz...

In that case, I see your point.
My K con flat ride has no real volume, but it does sound smokey sweet, but expression is limited at lower volume. These protos sound even more expressive at this volume level, not quite smokey, but a dryer toke. I'm not good enough for that touch yet. Some day.

Nice groove going on there!

I like the sound of the two-tone cymbal on the snare side. What size is that ride and what price point are you looking at if these prototypes ever get released???

Thanks!

A Duo and a Raw ride. Not really unique but not bad examples. Why are you recreating cymbals made by other companies? Wouldn't it be better to find a new voice/design? That would get some serious attention.
