The company stands among the biggest manufacturers of cymbals. The "Roland Meinl Musikinstrumente" was founded in 1951 by Roland Meinl. Initially the company produced wind instruments, beginning the production of cymbals only in 1952. The first Meinl cymbals were cut out of large metal sheets, hammered, lathed and drilled by hand by Roland Meinl himself. In addition to cymbals, Meinl manufactures a very wide range of percussion instruments such as bongos, drums, cajons, congas, djembes, güiros, pandeiros, and tambourines.
