      OVERVIEW

      The Transition Ride by Meinl has a natural, slightly polished top for clear articulation and a present but not overpowering bell. The bottom is lathed up to the bell, which enables a quick, shimmery crash with a rapid decay. This enables a "transition" back to a dry, articulate ride. The bottom also offers a brilliant finish which allows the ride to move through various dynamic levels with control over the degree of clarity and level of wash.

      A ride cymbal that easily transfers from ride to crash and back.

          Comments about Meinl Byzance Mike Johnston Signature Transition Ride:

          I love this ride. It was designed perfectly to fit its name. The cymbal gives an excellent dry (but not as dry as the extra dry series from Meinl) and articulate ride while the crash is an explosive, powerful sound that gets out of the way very quickly. Can be used in almost any musical application

          Comments about Meinl Byzance Mike Johnston Signature Transition Ride:

          This ride has been exactly what I have been looking for! It reacts as described when transitioning from crashing or heavy playing to a reasonably quick mild to medium wash decay back to clear stick articulation. This is the first time that I have purchased a cymbal online and not in person. Since there is no Meinl dealer within a couple hours from my home town, I went for it and happy that I did!
          I normally use heavier rides such as a "Ping" ride, and these rides can get loud really quick and take some time to decay. The transition ride is much different in this respect and took just a bit to get used to, but not long at all.
          This is my first Meinl cymbal and I am pleased thus far with the musicality and flexibility of this ride cymbal.
          I am using it for recording, live performances and band rehearsals with no problems whatsoever.

              Comments about Meinl Byzance Mike Johnston Signature Transition Ride:

              This ride cymbal is, in my opinion, the best ride I've ever played. Its sound is incredible. As soon as you start playing it as a ride, you get this clear stick definition and articulation without it being too pingy. Underneath that, you hear this gorgeous wash that fills the sound of the kit with just pure bliss. Then you go to crash it and you get this big, dark, shimmery, crash with hints of trashy characters; but the overall crash sound doesn't overpower the kit or sound like a gong as how some rides do. The bell sounds fantastic. When you hit the bell, it activates the whole cymbal, giving you that beautiful wash along with the crisp tone of the bell which actually sounds like a part of the cymbal. This ride feels wonderful to play as well. This cymbal just kind of moves with you as you're playing. Every placement of your stick affects the sound in a different good way, giving it so much character. And on top of all this, this ride looks stunning! It's always nice to have an instrument that makes you want to play it just by looking at it. And playing this cymbal just inspires me in many ways. Now I just wish I was endorsed by Meinl haha.
