      Energetic, exploding attack and a louder response.

      Crash cymbals with traditional, warm sound in an extremely wide dynamic spectrum.

      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 crash 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.

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

      A crash of rare color and range. Order today.

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Medium Crash Traditional Cymbal:

      These are the hands down best crashes I have ever owned or played. They are good for all styles of music and sound wonderful doing all of it. Alas all of these crashes that I have owned have broke(Quite quickly I may add). The warranty is for two years and if you are a heavy hitter you will need it.

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Medium Crash Traditional Cymbal:

      After about 4 months of research and listening to probably every crash cymbal from every company I could possibly find, I had been stuck on this one and I absolutely love it. I bought this to replace the Sabian 18" AA crash/ride that I have because the sound just wasn't my taste, if that makes sense, and this was definitely the right choice for me. This crash has the loudest and most spread out attack I've ever heard with washy, yet warm and crisp overtones which is what I love hearing from a crash, especially since I mainly play rock, punk, and a little metal now and then. It can also be played as a ride (given that it's 22") if you like a short "ping" sound, but with washy and crisp over tones which is also what I like to hear in a ride cymbal, but I wouldn't use it as a main ride, just if needed for a gig or some other circumstance. The only thing I would maybe complain about is the price, but in the end, totally worth it, especially when purchased on sale.

      WOW!Today I tried this crash at my friends house, and it's unbelievable, we compared this crash with a Sabian HHX 18" Crash, and no questions asked, the AA Meinl wins.

      Goin Big with Meinl 20

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Medium Crash Traditional Cymbal:

      I was excited to finally get this cymbal in the mail. I watched a bunch of videos and read reviews but my first time playing the 20" Byzance crash was when it came in the mail! At first thought I was a little concerned because it was definitely a darker china esque type sound. However after playing a bit on it and hitting it along with my other crash (18" zildjian a custom brilliant) I was in love. This cymbal cuts through the mix and has a nice long sustain. I can really hit this cymbal and not worry too much. But just to be on the safe side I picked up the warranty ;-) way to go Meinl!

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Medium Crash Traditional Cymbal:

      This crash is amazing. I purchased the 20" and will be getting the 21" ASAP. Diverse is definitely the best way to describe it. I would use the crash for any genre. Fantastic cymbal - worth the $$

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Medium Crash Traditional Cymbal:

      I have the Meinl Byzance Medium Crash Traditional 20 inch and it is worth the money. I use it in a worship band and for hardcore screamo. It is all around incredible and diverse. It really breaks through the mix.

      Incredibly diverse cymbal

      By Underoath777

      from Morristown, TN

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Medium Crash Traditional Cymbal:

      I bought the twenty inch for worship band and it is great. It has a long sustain and the bell is awesome. It is diverse because it has the traditional sound, but does not sound to dry or dull. If you want something that breaks through the mix this is a great cymbal for you.

      Meinl Byzance traditional 20

      By blake-S9Yu-

      from south carolina

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Medium Crash Traditional Cymbal:

      I have an all Meinl set up with 14" hi-hats, 20" medium crash, 21" medium ride and a 22" heavy ride. The 20" crash is quite honestly the best crash i have ever heard in my life. I've used everything from sabians to zildjian A customs and nothing comes close to this bad boy. It has a low sound for a crash but thats also why i love it so much. It's not too low, but more of a well blended mix of highs and lows. It still gives off a very good responsive "crash" sound and it works well with almost any kind of music. The jazzier the music is, the less ideal this cymbal is but then again that should be obvious. Just don't try to make this cymbal into a high pitch crash and you will find it perfect for almost all situations. I certainly don't regret buying it!
