Dark, earthy, with a short sustain and a defined ping and bell.
The Byzance ride cymbal has a low-frequency range with esoteric character due to the untreated finish.
The Meinl Byzance Dark series is handmade in Turkey using B20 bronze alloy. The surface of the cymbals are completely unlathed. They have a raw natural and unprocessed look.
- B20 bronze alloy
- Hand hammered into shape

Comments about Meinl Byzance Dark Ride Cymbal:
I'm generally a Paiste player and have been curious about Meinl Cymbals for quite some time. I also have never bought a cymbal site unseen on line. I took a chance when the Christmas sale was going on. This Dark Ride Byzance by Meinl has amazing tone , yet dry and not overly washy. It sounds great for light sticking and performs well under a hard hit attack. I recomend the 21" for anyone looking for a dark dry all around performance cymbal. Not just for jazzers!!
