OVERVIEW

Powerful and focused sound with a defined, bright bell.

The Byzance Ride Cymbals have a solid, full-bodied stick response with a clear ping.

Meinl's Byzance Traditional finish cymbals are handmade in Turkey using the traditional B20 bronze alloy. The profile of the cymbal is hand-hammered into shape. They are also lathed by hand. All this handwork goes into making a true musical instrument.

These ride cymbals have a nice dark character with an explosive attack and a long decay. Good for Latin, jazz, rock, pop, and country . . . a good all around cymbal.

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

Meinl Byzance Heavy Ride Traditional Cymbal

By RoyalDrummer

Comments about Meinl Byzance Heavy Ride Traditional Cymbal:

I have the 22" heavy ride, simply amazing. I also bought a 20 inch byzance medium crash, a 20 inch mb20 heavy crash and 13 inch byzance medium sound wave hats. Those together would be nothing without this extremely powerful ride. The bell isnt exactly the loudest bell out there, however it still works to my expectations. GREAT ride.

SATISFIED AT LAST!

Comments about Meinl Byzance Heavy Ride Traditional Cymbal:

I've been through, literally, well over twenty rides in the past few months trying to find a versatile, all purpose ride. None met my expectations until now! I was dissapointed with every ride with the exception of maybe two out of close to thirty. This baby is the absolute best sounding ride I've heard in my life....finally! This ride actually exceeded my expectations which is a first...it has a nice mild ping, with a great spread/wash, nice crash, and a great bell and overall just a superb unmatched playability. I compared this ride to many from Zildjian, Paiste , Sabian, Istanbul, Bosphorus, and more. This wins hands down. Every ride I tried had something about it I liked and that's why I bought it, but there was also something about every ride that I didn't like and that's why I sold it. This Meinl Byzance 20" Traditional Heavy ain't goin' anywhere but with me wherever I'm playing. DO NOT OVERLOOK THIS RIDE! TRUST ME!

Comments about Meinl Byzance Heavy Ride Traditional Cymbal:

I owned the 22" traditional version of this ride.
This ride has a nice defined ping with out being overly "pingy". It does have a mild wash when played hard on top. It's too loud for my purposes when crash riding. I think it a bit harsh sounding, but if you play heavier music, it would suit you quite well. I don't play hard music, so I got rid of it. I listened to another drummer play this with a band and although not a fan of the tone, it does tend to sit quite nicely in the mix. The ping is enough to cut through a bit and the wash fills in the rest.
If you like heavy sounding cymbals, this may be the one for you.
