OVERVIEW

Cymbals ideal for drummers seeking instant, dynamic character.

Every Byzance model is hand hammered into shape by cymbal artisans in Turkey, giving each cymbal its own unique and colorful voice. This Byzance Traditional cymbal box pack contains 14" traditional hi hats, 16" traditional medium crash, 20" traditional medium ride and a free 18" Byzance Extra Dry Thin crash.

This Extra Dry Thin crash cymbal is great for adding a contrasting crash sound that works well as an accent cymbal, and it allows players to dig in for trashy riding effects. The Byzance 14" hi-hats deliver an unmatched "chick" sound when played closed along with a full bodied, dark sizzling crash when played loose or open. The 16" medium crash is designed to open up into a warm, full-bodied wash that has an unmatched musical spread with a longer sustain. A 20" medium ride rounds out the set and has a balanced, shimmering stick response with a defined ping and a blend of bright overtones together with dark wash underneath. The bell is penetrating and musical, but not overpowering.

Byzance Traditional cymbals from Meinl are in investment that are sure to stay on your kit as your tastes and styles evolve through time.

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Standard Set with Free 18" Extra Dry Thin Crash:

      I thought these cymbals would be lighter. The brilliant cymbals are very heavy...seems like meinl is getting rid of old stock. The 18" cymbal was the only one I liked.

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Standard Set with Free 18" Extra Dry Thin Crash:

      I have been cringing at my Zildjian Z.B.T.`s now for a couple years. I am a guitarist who loves to play drums. I play on a basic Tama 5 piece with a double kick and Evans heads all around. I play rock and jazz along with a playlist to relax, and I have noticed in the last couple years how my hi hats and crash just fall short on subtle accentuation's as well as color splashes. Last Friday night I swapped out the ZBT set for the Meinl Byzance set. WOW. The crisp edge of the hats and deep swish of the ride is amazing. The extra dry thin crash gives me more diversity,as it is totally different from a medium. But I love how I can go from metal to classic, to jazz and get what I desire from my cymbals. If you have the budget, or a tax refund on the way this is the best buy for the money and worth every penny!
