OVERVIEW

Trashy overtones, soft response with a fast decay creating an overall dryness.

Unique lightweight crash cymbal with an extremely dry and low-pitched sound.

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.

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

amazing crashes but not very loud

By HH

See all my reviews

Comments about Meinl Byzance Extra Dry Thin Crash Traditional Cymbal:

I have a 18" and a 20" and I absolutely love them. But consier that they have a RELATIVELY LOW VOLUME. A 20" goes well with 16" an 18" crashes of other series.They are kind of a hybrid between crash and china. A very unique cymbal. Amazing!

Comments about Meinl Byzance Extra Dry Thin Crash Traditional Cymbal:

These crashes are simply out of this world. They sound great in and out of the studio. The response is more comfortable than any other cymbal I've played. They even look nice! Can't go wrong here.

    Comments about Meinl Byzance Extra Dry Thin Crash Traditional Cymbal:

    this cymbal has a great dry crash that cuts through the music, then quickly fades back out. Not too loud, not too soft, and pretty responsive. Currently using it as my main crash.
