Comments about Meinl Byzance Jazz Thin Ride Traditional Cymbal:


Drummer of 10 years here, specializing in modern church worship music (Hillsong Worship, Bethel Music, etc.), but also gigging in blues/indie rock bands. I bought this ride back in June 2015 and since then, it has become the staple of my style and a necessary tool for my music. Trust me when i say this that cymbal is 100% worth the investment. For me it was a feat to get my hands on my 22" version. GC didn't have any in stock in their warehouses or anything so they had to get in contact with Meinl personally and send it to me but man i wouldn't have it any other way. I personally prefer this cymbal to the Zyldjian K Light Ride as this Jazz ride is a bit warmer but with some bright undertones that match well with other Meinl Byz. Trad. cymbals. To each his own i guess, but i'll stick w/ Meinl for now. :-)
Setup: (All Meinl Byzance Traditional except for ride) 15" medium hats, 19" medium thin crash, 22" med. thin jazz ride, 21" medium crash
