  • Here’s a fascinating, gorgeous-sounding Meinl Byzance 22”.  

  • A kaleidoscope of colors on this 22”.   And you don’t actually get a chance to hear many of these - it’s mostly a lame drop and ship stock photo. 

  • Well not here! 
  • This is the Byzance version of an ISTANBUL TURK Ride - but more colorful with a factory pre - aged finish.  

  • Unlathed, raw and heavily Hand Hammered with a factory corroded finish that’s gorgeous. 

  • And incredibly Dry Semi-Complex 22” Ride with a dark thunder-like crash.  

  • The weight is 2910 grams and it plays like a Medium Thin.  It sounds very old-world, dry Istanbul K ish   That’s the vibe - organic with a hint of nasty, pre-aged mojo. 

  • Dry. Dark. Medium Complex wash that decays quickly. Medium to medium-low in pitch which highs present.  Very organic tone. Great semi-dry attack.

  • Meinl describes this cymbal as:
     These raw looking cymbals with high-density hand hammering are all about strong sticking responses over deep and dry darkness. Total control, due to almost no sustain.”
  • There ya go!! 

  • This is a killer cymbal - looking and sounding.   

  • Goes from a whisper to a roar with ease.  

  • Immaculate condition.
