Effortless touch and clean sound. This is Meinl Pure Alloy. A timeless voice formed with fully lathed surfaces allows them to be expressive in virtually any style. Their refined nature has two sides: polished definition met by a velvety wash that encompasses a full tonal spectrum. Shimmering, smooth sounds bounce right along with your stick to create a reactive touch that extends through all dynamic levels. These cymbals cut with agility. Blanketing their superb stick definition is a sustain that plays out with just the right amount of strength and balanced wash.
The 15” Pure Alloy Extra Hammered Hihats feature a medium-thin top and medium bottom with additional hammering throughout. Sounding pre-EQ’d, they have a dry attack in the upper-mid frequencies giving them a clear and focused voice. Additionally, there is a hint of sizzle and crunch in the low end creating rich warmth for a naturally compressed response. Open the top cymbal for thick barks, and close them for a dry foot chick. Fully opened, they present a robust wash that has plenty of volume and push.
