Comments about Meinl Byzance Vintage Series Benny Greb Sand Cymbal Set:
If you want to get the best cymbals at this price range these are the ones.
They are not cheap but you get what you pay for.
Plenty of video available on these baby's that can explain and describe them better than me.
Benny Greb has many of them.
First off they are beautiful.
That being said the 20 inch Sand Ride is smooth with just the right amount of wash...when you play it your stick just sort of becomes part of it it has a great bell and shimmers just right....really it is a great ride and crash.
The 18 inch thin crash is my favorite in the kit....not being too technical... remember when you were in High School and you were banging the big marching cymbals and they cut through everything...this is that sound.... and it is hard to describe...it sounds fantastic if you hit it soft or hard.
I guess you have to hear it to understand
The Sand Hi Hats are the best sounding ones I have ever owned and I have owned a lot over the years, great stick definition and sweet chick, and you can get some amazingly varied sounds out of them the bottom one is at least twice as heavy as the top.
Sorry about not being real technical, but as an average Joe who got himself an amazing set of cymbals I am doing my best.
You got the money...buy them..I don't know if I should play them or just hang them up on the wall and look at them
