- $560!!! That’s how much a new Meinl Byzance 22” will cost you! And I can’t say it’s not worth it because it’s one of the most all-around versatile Ride Cymbals there is.
- But just because it’s costs $560 doesn’t mean you have to spend $560!!! And you need not sacrifice tone nor condition! And you don’t have to guess what it sounds like either with that big box store photo.
- Never guess chez hazelshould! Have a listen so that you can buy with confidence!
- Immaculate condition Meinl BYZANCE 22” Medium Ride in a resplendent Brilliant Finish.
- Here is how Meinl describes this cymbal:
“Highly polished finish effect. ... clear, warm sound with bright overtones. The Byzance Ride Cymbal has a defined ping with medium sustain."
- However, this specific 22” is Dark sounding - have a listen.
- The HAND HAMMERED tone is exceptionally warm and medium to medium-low pitched. This particular 22" has all the warm leanings of Meinl’s Hand Hammered cymbals, the stick definition is STRONG and articulated quite well--it has a chime-like tone.
- The wash is medium full but still allows the stick attack to breathe. AND (and this is what I really dig,) the tone is not nearly as harsh or bright as a modern Zildian Ride. This Byzance is considerably SMOOTHER sounding than Zildjians. The overtones are more pleasing, and it's not grating or annoyingly high-pitched.
- ALL OF THAT WITH THE WONDERFUL DARK SHIMMER THE BRILLIANT FINISH ADDS!!!
- The bell, of course, is STRONG AND POWERFUL. It'll cut through even in heavy rock.
- If you crash/ride on it, all hell breaks lose. This 22" yields a MASSIVE Crash Ride FULL vibe! A la Dave Grohl.
- Perfect for soft to loud settings - a workhorse cymbal!
- And for $560 Meinl thinks so too.
- But you can save that hard won money - and listen to the exact cymbal you’re getting. It’s a beauty!
- Immaculate. No issues at all. Only played for the video and that’s it.
