The Best Cymbal Packs of 2019 – Top Picks From a Touring Drummer

Cymbals are arguably the most important sounding component of your drum set. Anyone can make a cheap set of shells sound great.

It’s truly the cymbals that make a kit shine. Unfortunately for us drummers, cymbals are expensive.

In a hurry? Our favorite is the Benny Greb cymbal pack from Meinl.

One high-quality crash cymbal from, say Zildjian, may run you upwards of $400. Larger cymbal companies have begun putting out cymbal packs, not just for entry-level cymbals, but for high-end ones as well.

Read on to see our reviews and our favorite cymbal pack of 2019.
