            Comments about Meinl Byzance Dark Splash Cymbal:

            Great splash to add some unique sounds to your kit!
            I recently purchased the 8" to go along with my Meinl collection. (I currently have the MCS pack, with a 14" filter china, a 19" dark crash, an 18" extra dry, plus a medium bell)
            This splash was a great addition, and Im honestly thinking about going ahead and picking up a 10" as well.
            You may get a little more volume out of the Brilliant, or one of the original series meinl splash, but the tone of this Dark series splash is killer! Deep tone with a quick decay, with just a little washy-ness. Definitely a great addition for any drummer who is looking to expand the sound potential of their kit!

              Comments about Meinl Byzance Dark Splash Cymbal:

              after so many years of paiste rude and signature and zildjian k and oriental, I found meinl thanks to benny greb. The entire sand line it amazing and now im exploring into the whole byzance line. this one in particular sounds like something primus would use. its dark and has a wonderful flanger after effect of the sustain. i promise you meinl are going to be on top, not from the endorsers but from folks like you and me, truly the best in the world.

                If you want a dark, haunting, unique splash sound that makes your listeners go "wait, what was that...?" this is the ticket.

                I bought an 8" and it sounds fabulous. Paired with my dark hats it makes a great complimentary cymbal.

                Now all I need is a dark ride...hmmm...

                WOW!

                Comments about Meinl Byzance Dark Splash Cymbal:

                i think zildjians are wayyyy overrated. so many people have nothing but, i love my meinls especially this one, i have the 10" and it is what a splash should be, very dark, quick decay, just right sound, deep but not deep. the dark series is so versatile, plus the unlathed finsih looks great. ;)
