OVERVIEW

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

      Warm, complex and really, really nice.

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Hi-Hat Set:

      Phenomenal hats. The tops have a really warm sound and buttery feel when they're played open, and closed they are super responsive and versatile. I've found that subtle changes in the way the hats are hit can make a noticeable difference in the sound, which is nice when you want to mix it up without drastically changing technique. Even in a loud rock setting these puppies stand out without being grating or overly washy. Easily the best pair of hats I've ever owned, and probably my favorite cymbal, period.
