      OVERVIEW

      An explosive China with a dark and dirty character.

      This Meinl Byzance extra dry China cymbal is a unique china with a dark, dirty sound that has a wide spectrum of frequencies. An explosive attack due to the medium weight and the partial lathing.

      Extra Dry cymbals have big hammer marks which-in combination with the untreated, natural finish-enable an extremely dark sound with a short sustain. They exhibit dominant lows with an esoteric character.

      This Meinl Byzance China cymbal is completely hand-hammered into shape and satisfies the highest demands of its users. Every Byzance cymbal is a piece of art and has its own unique sound characteristics which can never be duplicated.

      FEATURES
      • Explosive attack
      • Wide spectrum
      • Medium weight
      • Partially lathed

      Extra dry means extra awesome if you enjoy some dirt in your China. Order today.

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Extra Dry China Cymbal:

      I use this china as my main. Along side I use a 18" wuhan (Laugh if you must).

      It's really different being that I was expecting a wuhan like trashy sound come from it only to hear more of a warm sounding china.

      I like it just not really what I was expecting.

      With that said, I'd definitely buy this in a bigger china for deeper sound.

        Comments about Meinl Byzance Extra Dry China Cymbal:

        This is an awesome china. It's dark and trashy, as a china should be in my opinion. This cymbal gets in, says what it needs to say, and gets out. There's not a ridiculous amount of resonance as there are in many other chinas I have used.
