Monoprice Cymbals

3 posts in this topic

I caught this video from rdavidr on YouTube the other day.  Dude had been turned onto WalMart for cheap gear.  He found a 20" ride cymbal for $23.46, and it's actually B20 bronze.

I spotted a Monoprice crash and hi-hats on the WalMart website, which are also fairly inexpensive.  I'd definitely start recommending them to beginners on a budget.  It might be worth buying a set of them for gigs in shady areas.

He points out the 20" ride is slightly less than 20".  20" is 50.8cm... so maybe it's a 50cm cymbal?  Have cymbals gone metric?

Well this seems impossible. On the other hand, what does this say about the price of typical big name cymbals?

The thing sounds pretty nice to me. More of a crash ride sound. $24??? How can this be? Walmart had tens of thousands made and got a terrific deal, passed on to customers?

Given the popularity David has, I can see Wally world swamped with orders.

Looks like they don't carry it anymore. They have a 18" ride. Just says "high quality copper alloy."

Yeah, I went online and couldn't find the ride when his video came out.
