The Artist Concept Models are a collection of cymbal voices. They are the product of Meinl Cymbal Artists and the Meinl R&D team. The goal was to craft unique and innovative sounds that allowed the artist to explore, create and forge ahead as leaders in acoustic music and in the art of drumming.
Thomas Lang about his Super Stack:
When struck at the shoulder of the top china, my Super Stack produces an aggressive mid-range bark that projects with incredible ferocity. Its fierceness cuts through any wall of sound and allows you to slice through even the most crowded soundscape. When played softly at the edge, it produces a wide and washy sizzle, perfect for accents and punctuations at a more moderate volume. When played with the stick tip at the shoulder, its short and piercing sound is reminiscent of a trashy hihat. The Super Stack is super loud, super fast, and super short. It allows the drummer to override and supersede even the most dense frequency chaos and make a clear and consice percussive statement in every musical sitatuion. By adjusting the pressure of the wing nut, you can adjust the length of the sustain and dial up your perfect stack attack and decay. This is the most versatile stack combination you’ll find.”
