OVERVIEW

Dry and defined.

Distinctive hi-hat cymbal due to its weight relation between top and bottom. Lightweight top produces a dark stick response with little wash, with a fat "chick" sound.

Dark and dirty. These are the words that describe the Byzance Extra-Dry hi hat cymbal. The surface is completely unlathed and untreated (crashes are lathed on the bottom). Just raw hand-hammered bronze--for a raw earthy sound. There is no wash. The extremely short sustain and stick definition come from the deep hammer marks layered with a more traditional hammering. Smoky sound, buttery feel and a 2-year warranty. Use for studio, fusion, Latin, R&B, country, rock, jazz and pop.

FEATURES
  • B20 bronze alloy
  • Hand hammered into shape
  • Utmost in musicality

Looks and sound that stand out from the crowd. Order today!

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Extra-Dry Medium Hi-Hat Cymbals:

      These hats looked amazing straight out of the box, but the sound was much better. They have such a crisp sound but such a warm base. They sound so beautiful and can truly be used for any genre. I will forever recommend these hats to any friends that ever ask. Best cymbal purchase yet.

      Great high hat

      By Acemagic

      from Kingman, AZ

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Extra-Dry Medium Hi-Hat Cymbals:

      I borrowed this high hat from a friend while he was using my crash ride for a little, and I got completely stuck to it. I played for 4 or 5 hours a day, way more than the usual 1 or 2. I have tried quite a few high hats, and this and the Zildjian ZHT Mastersound are definitely the best you can find.
