Meinl Benny Greb 8"/8" Crasher Hats

From Benny Greb, author of "The Language of Drumming", "The Art and Science of Groove", "Effective Practicing for Musicians" and one of the most respected drummers in the world today: "Is it a shaker? A programmed & pitched hihat sample? Is it a crasher percussion effect? No, it’s the Crasher Hats. I wanted something that was super short, dry, clear, and high in frequency but still very dynamic that could fulfill a whispering shaker-like role in the music. Tough to get! So we (Meinl Cymbals and I) had to create something completely unique. Four separate cymbals are sandwiched together. They have different shoulders so they collapse against each other at every hit. The result is incredible. A very unique sound that blends beautifully with ghost notes and other subdivisions, but can also make a very percussive statement. Always sounds perfect without any unwanted noise or sustaining ring."
