The GENERATION X ELECTRO STACKS have a hard, sizzling attack due to the waved china top with a trashy, white noise effect and an extremely short sustain due to the combination of two cymbals.
By putting two or more cymbals on top of each other, new and unique sounds can be created. Modern music requires new and hip sounds which can’t be realized with conventional cymbals. By stacking cymbals, radical sounds are achieved which reflect the drummer’s creativity and open mind. Unconventional white noises and trashy effects are sounds demanded by many producers in today’s studio world. From a playing standpoint, stacks are used for fast accents and special effect sounds. Due to the fact that they are naturally muffled, they can also be used for keeping time, similar to the function of hihats or ride cymbals.
Meinl’s innovative and award-winning GENERATION X cymbals pave the way to a completely new world of revolutionary cymbals. These cymbals have sounds which are consciously different and aimed towards advanced, experimental and unconventional drummers who are motivated to explore new sound territories. Meinl’s Generation X cymbals offer contemporary and modern sounds which were designed in cooperation with some of today’s most remarkable drummers.
