A Guideline to Meinl Cymbals - Part 1

Have you seen our 2013 Cymbal Guide yet?

The 2013 Meinl Cymbal Guide

Every year we put a lot of thoughts in our new catalog. For our 2013 issue however we came up with a whole new concept. Not just as far as graphic design is concerned, but also how to simplify and categorize our entire cymbal portfolio. It all looks clean and so simple, but there is a lot of thought behind it. To make something look simple yet appealing is a big challenge.

One thing you notice is that we didn't call it a "catalog". It is a "Cymbal Guide". It's not merely about listing the products; it's about guiding the drummers through our cymbal portfolio. 

I'm going to publish a series of blogs in which I will explain our ideas and concepts which are introduced in the 2013 Cymbal Guide. I invite you to become a part of the discussion.

You can get a printed copy through the worldwide music retail stores, or you can download a pdf here.

vorgestern war ich erst wieder im showroom zu besuch. ich bin so sehr beeindruckt von den neuen byzance ride cymbals, ich kann's gar nicht sagen. das 22' byzance extra dry thin ride wird schon bald teil meines setups sein, ich habe nur drauf gewartet, dass ihr es in einer thin variante anbietet.
vielen dank für eure betreuung, ich bleib euch treu.
grüße und bis bald

Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging
on blogs I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be helpful to read through content from other writers and practice a little something from their sites.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you've done
a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox.
Outstanding Blog!

This design is steller! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you
presented it. Too cool!
