Their hand hammered and lathed surfaces with warm sounds and selection of models may be rooted in tradition, but MEINL Byzance cymbals are the ultimate choice when it comes to modern versatility. Every Byzance model is hand hammered into shape by cymbal artisans in Turkey, giving each cymbal its own unique and colorful voice. The 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 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. This pack is ideal for players looking for a musical set of cymbals that have instant character with all dynamic levels. Byzance Traditional cymbals from Meinl are in investment that are sure to stay on your kit as your tastes and styles evolve through time.
