      The unique look and crisp sound of these sandblasted hats will take your your music to a higher level.

      The Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Hi-Hat Set's sandblasted surface, various hammering techniques, and noticeable weight difference between the top and bottom cymbals combine to create an unmistakably crispy and articulate sound.

      The transfer of the Sand Ride sound concept to a hi-hat has managed to combine a vintage sound and look with a modern transparent sound and clarity. The Sand Hat is a fantastic all-around hi-hat with lots of finesse and character, sporting a clear sound without being obtrusive. Full of nuances and presence, the Sand Hat can range from a silent whispering sound to a full sonic statement.

      Benny Greb, who is proud to claim this set as his signature hat, calls it the most musical hi-hat he's ever heard.

      Benny Greb is a prolific German drummer and clinician. He plays a large variety of music and has played rock with Stoppok and The Ron Speilman Trio, jazz with The Benny Greb Brass Band and Sabri Tulug Tirpan, funk with Jerobeam, reggae with Bobby McFerrin, classical with the NDR Orchestra on their Frank Zappa Project, fusion with 3ergezimmer and Wayne Krantz, and acoustic punk with Strom & Wasser.

      Byzance Sand Hats Perfect for the music I play

      By Jeff Gaston

      from Florida

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Hi-Hat Set:

      Great hats, funky trashy fusion + vintage sound. Works great with the blues band I play with. We were all blown away by the sound and articulation. Some good vids are out there so that you can hear what they sound like. I found that those vids were true to real-life performances as well. Quality purchase for sure.
      Heavy bottom hat mixed with the sand-blasted top hat make this perfect for the blues, which I play 80% of the time.
      None better than Meinl
      A bit expensive, but worth it

      These cymbals are the best very versitile. I looked at buying some new cymbals for about 2months i could not decide between these or zildjian A new beats. but i finally made my choice after lisitning and playing both i decided on these. if u are thinking about meinl or zildjian go with meinl there byzance series is the best money can buy they have so many choices that finding your sound is easy.
