  • Absolutely beautiful sounding, organic Dark Crash that has a thinner weight but offers a full tone.  

  • These things run just under $400 new - for a stock photo and a guess at what it sounds like.  

  • Not chez Hazelshould! 

  • Hand Hammered Meinl Byzance 18” Dark Crash in terrific condition with a Vintage look. Logos removed specifically for an old school vibe.  

  • The craftsmanship is stunning! Deep, Heavy Hand Hammering with an unlathed, dark golden brushed finish! Raw appearance with an earthen tone. DARK and drier sounding but still with that famous Hand Hammered complexity.  

  • Meinl described this 18” as:
    Dark in a low frequency range, and esoteric character caused by the untreated finish. Earthy with a strong attack and a short sustain.” 

  • 1323 grams makes in on the thinner side but it has no problem cutting. 

  • Dark.  Semi-dry attack with a full Hand Hammered complexity.  Broad dynamic range. Strong bell - even for a crash. Very organic, earthen tone. 

  • Unlathed, heavily hand hammered and raw.  

  • Fantastic shape.  No issues. 

  • Listen to this exact cymbal and buy with confidence!
