Yesterday I’ve posted a photo which showed a stack of Sand Rides in our storage here at Meinl. Someone asked whether or not our cymbals should have a protective layer between each of them to prevent scratches, as all the cymbals on the photo didn’t have one.
The way we do it here at Meinl is that we put a special protective fabric only between each cymbal that has a brilliant finish. These are our Byzance brilliant, Mb20, M-Series Fusion, Soundcaster Fusion, Soundcaster, Mb10, Classics Custom, Classics Custom Extreme Metal, and some Generation X Series models. You see, almost all of our series are protected like that. The surface of all our other lines is less susceptible to scratches, or has a protective lacquer coating. Apart from that, once the cymbals are put in the storage, they are not moved around anymore until we pull them out for shipping. And as soon as that happens, every cymbal is packed into an individual bag regardless of its finish.
Just wanted to let you know how we do it. If you have any questions, just let me know.
