When you’re a company as radical as Meinl Cymbals, a push toward the
traditional can be a refreshing twist. So it is with the Pure Alloy
series. These cymbals look to the past with a fully lathed playing
surface and traditional craftsmanship, for a look and response that’s
closer to yesterday’s cymbals. Fully lathed surfaces are a big departure
from the raw, earthy cymbals Meinl is best known for today.
