Warm basic sound with medium sustain and bell.
The Meinl Medium Ride Cymbal has a balanced, controllable stick response with a defined ping and a blend of bright overtones. Meinls 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 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.

Comments about Meinl Byzance Medium Ride Traditional Cymbal:
I have had all the name brand cymbals and not just a few...whole sets and sets of several models. Typically the most expensive ones. I almost never like a ride cymbal. They all seem to be missing something but not this one. I have this ride in a 22" and it sounds as good or better than cymbals costing a lot more. Its a no brainer. I've been disappointed with more expensive cymbals but not with Byzance. I'm buying more.
