  • What King Midas would use as his Dry Ride. 

  • Gorgeous golden hues radiate off this Hand Hammered RAW top of the line Meinl that costs just under $500 new.

  • But just because it costs that much doesn't mean you need to SPEND that much.  And you can hear the exact cymbal you’re going to get too!

  • I have right here, this amazing condition, golden hued Meinl Byzance DARK Ride 20” and it sounds amazing.
  • Meinl described this cymbal as:
     Low frequency range with esoteric character due to the untreated finish. Dark, earthy, with a short sustain and a defined ping and bell.”  

  • Well there ya go!  I gotta say, they nailed it!

  • This particular 20” has a bit more penetration and bright mixed in with all the darkness. 
  • The craftsmanship is stunning! Deep, Heavy Hand Hammering with an unlathed, deep golden brushed finish! Raw appearance with an earthen tone. DARK and DRY sounding.

  • As you would imagine the stick attack is phenomenal. The Hand Hammered bell measures 6.5” and cuts superbly. The profile is fairly low giving this massive 20” a lower pitch and darker colors. 

  • 2756 grams. Sounds great from a whisper to a roar. The dryness and articulation translates at low volumes and the bell and weight ensure a strong projecting attack. 

  • Generous bell and playing field - like a K Custom but actually DARK and Hand Hammered.

  • Dry but not at all dead.  That Hand Hammering offers a shadow of complexity. 

  • Penetrates a mix with ease without sounding high pitched and grating. Remains dark.  

  • Perfect for any genre of music. Great live and in the studio.

  • Amazing condition. And not $500 for a stock photo guess.   

  • Beautiful golden hue.  

  • Clean.
