Handmade in Turkey.
The Byzance Hi-Hat Cymbals have a wide dynamic spectrum with a soft, warm sound. Unobtrusive and controlled open hi-hat sound with a crisp chick.
Meinl's Byzance Traditional finish cymbals are handmade in Turkey using the traditional B20 bronze alloy. The profile of the cymbal is hand-hammered into shape. They are also lathed by hand. All this handwork goes into making a true musical instrument. These hi-hat cymbals have a nice dark character with an explosive attack and a long decay. Good for Latin, jazz, rock, pop and country . . . a good all around cymbal.
- B20 bronze alloy

Comments about Meinl Byzance Medium Hi-Hat Cymbals:
I got my pair of 14" hats today and they are incredible so far. A little heavier than I expected but it's a very good thing. They've got a great cutting closed stick sound, and when half open get a whole lot of really nice warm wash, but it projects and cuts really well. It's got one of the crispest foot chicks I've ever heard as well, perfect for keeping a solid beat over a washy ride pattern. I like to play a variety of different music and these have handled rock through to metal through to blues without a problem. Anyone looking for some hats that can really take on any music you throw at them would do well to pick a pair of these up!
