      Comments about Meinl Byzance Vintage Series Benny Greb Sand Cymbal Set with Free 16 inch Trash Crash:

      I replaced a set of Zildjian K's, which are awesome cymbals, with these. I couldn't be happier. Thanks Benny Greb for creating the perfectly balanced line of cymbals.

      Incredible Cymbal Set!

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Vintage Series Benny Greb Sand Cymbal Set with Free 16 inch Trash Crash:

      Excellent set! Benny Greb's promotion video demos the byzance vintage sand line beautifully. The ride is incredibly musical and has a very crisp bell. The hats are very responsive and have a really articulate stick sound, with the perfect amount of dryness. With an exception of the loudest music, the Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand set is perfect to complement any style.

            This set is great. The ride is very responsive at all volumes with just the right amount of wash. The bell is the best I've ever heard. The hihats sound great in all styles of music. The crash was darker than expected, but I quickly adjusted to this and love how it fits with the rest of the cymbals.

                      **4 1/2 out 5 stars.** These are great cymbals, the hi hats, crash, and trash crash blow me away. I would give these 5 stars if it wasn't for the ride, it takes some getting used to so be aware. It is very washy even without crashing on it. The only real ride sound I get with mine is when I hit the bell which sounds great but is really disappointing. I dampened mine with moon gel and it made it sound better but does leave unsightly marks so I might switch to tape on the bottom. Overall great cymbals would defiantly recommend.

                        I tried many cymbals before and I have a own set also which are from different brands. I spent lots of time to match them up with a great balance and great dynamic contrast. But this amazing cymbal set already have what i want(Great balance, Great dynamic contrast,Good looking).It can be used for many music styles from pop to jazz. A SUPER nice cymbal set!!!
