Founded by Roland MEINL in 1951 and initially producing wind instruments, the first MEINL cymbals appeared in 1952 and were cut from large metal sheets, hammered, lathed and drilled by hand by Roland MEINL himself, who then personally transported them, on the luggage carrier of his bicycle, to the railway station for shipment. MEINL has since gone from such humble origins to become a world leader in percussion instruments.
Their acrylic glass body makes the MEINL Crystal Shakers completely transparent. Available in soft (white plastic beads) and loud (black plastic beads), the transparency means you cannot mix them up on stage. These shakers provide players with a medium pitch sound that will help shape any groove with clarity and feel making them an exceptional choice for live playing.
