      Dark, earthy, with a short sustain and a defined ping and bell.

      The Byzance ride cymbal has a low-frequency range with esoteric character due to the untreated finish.

      The Meinl Byzance Dark series is handmade in Turkey using B20 bronze alloy. The surface of the cymbals are completely unlathed. They have a raw natural and unprocessed look.

        I bought this used & didn't know what it would sound like. Salesman John helped w/ process & I knew these we good Pies anyway. Cymbal sounds great. Looking for some hats & a crash to make it complete. Oh did I tell you I love the cymbal?

        Comments about Meinl Byzance Dark Ride Cymbal:

        Articulate, yet crashable. Heavy, but not thick feeling. Dark overtones, but not too dry. This cymbal can do anything! I play death metal/black metal to funk to prog rock. It can be used as a big crash/ride or a pingy ride. There is no ride I would rather have in my arsenal. Not even the Sabian Groove Ride. The Groove Ride is super versatile and crashable with a strong bell, but it doesn't have as much character, responsiveness, or beauty as this Meinl Byzance Dark Ride.

        I have the 21" version and it crashes like a 24" yet is tight sounding as an undersized heavier ride.

        WOW !!! What a ride

        By Snoxxy

        from AR

        Comments about Meinl Byzance Dark Ride Cymbal:

        I just got this 21" Version a couple weeks ago and this thing is AMAZING. I was going to to use it along with my Zildjan Ride.. but this thing has such a good sound to it, the bell is the most unique feature about it. It is very, VERY dark sounding, but it is still very unique and punches through the rest of the sound of the drums with ease. I get complimented a lot on it, so much in fact that I am debating on removing my Zildjan ride completly from the setup.Worth its money, for sure.
