Get your low freq on with this dark and dirty China cymbal.

This Byzance Dark China cymbal produces low frequencies and is dark and dirty, both in sound and appearance. It has an aggressive attack with a washy, short sustain.

Dark cymbals are not lathed and have their original appearance and sound characteristic. They are distinguished by an earthy sound with a fairly short sustain.

This Meinl Byzance China cymbal is completely hand-hammered into shape and satisfies the highest demands of its users. Every Byzance cymbal is a piece of art and has its own unique sound characteristics which can never be duplicated.

    Comments about Meinl Byzance Dark China:

    I have never owned a dark cymbal until now. I have compared this china cymbal to many other china's of the same size, even the same company, and this one by far is much better. It has an explosive attack, bright sound, and a focused crash. When I think of the china cymbal sound, this is what I hear. If you are in the market for a new china, then this is your cymbal.
