Extremely musical ride cymbal with ultra-dry stick definition and an outstanding short sustain. Unlathed surface and big hammer strokes produce a dry and warm sound in a low frequency range.
Dark and dirty. These are the words that describe the Byzance Extra-Dry cymbals. 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.
Sounds as distinctive as it looks.
- B20 bronze alloy
- Hand hammered into shape
- Utmost in musicality

Comments about Meinl Byzance Extra Dry Medium Ride Traditional Cymbal:
This is the best dry ride I have ever touched! I didn't even have to play it to know it was good! The crash is cool, but not loud (Although it is a dry ride). The ping and bell are the best from a dry ride, ever! If you are thinking about buying this, don't even think, just buy now!
