i got an email from john e. johnson recently, drummer and editor-in-chief of secrets of home theater and high fidelity. he has been reviewing cymbals by measuring their frequency spectrum using laboratory-grade microphones calibrated to plus or minus 0.5dB, 20 Hz - 30 kHz. various of our cymbals have been and will be reviewed by him, and here are the first three of a total of ten results.
> mb20 22" heavy bell ride
> byzance jazz 18" medium thin crash
> byzance brilliant 19" medium thin crash
i find this very interesting, especially the graphical analyses. check'em out and stay tuned since more meinl reviews will be coming up.
there's also a thread on drummerworld.com about this.
