Vintage Meinl Meteor Ride 22"


Hi guys,

I found this Vintage Meinl Meteor ride on the net, it's 22 inch, and I was just wondering if anyone could give me more information about it.

You can find pictures in this link:

From the quick search I just did, it looks like the Meteor is an entry level line of cymbal...Possibly brass? I`m sure someone will be along shortly to give more info...

I had a Meinl 20" ride that came with a Century kit I bought when I was about 19 (30 years ago!). Looked like it was punched out rather than spun. Sounded great though, especially for jazz and swing. Ended up being totally destroyed after I lent it to a mate who was running a rehearsal studio out of his warehouse flat and a bunch of metal bands used it. I say "used", but I actually mean "thrashed and pummelled within an inch of it's life"! Wish I still had it, such a nice cymbal. So much better than the kit it came with...

The Meinl Meteor cymbal pictured in the ad is a lower line (beginner-intermediate level) cymbal with a high nickel-silver content. Not the worst cymbal I've ever played and heard but not up to the standards of today's high end production Meinl cymbals.

Right now your meteor thread is next to my satellite thread.

Houston we are ready for launch.
