  • Here’s a stunning, Hand Hammered RAW top of the line Meinl that costs $520 new.

  • But just because it costs that much doesn't mean you need to SPEND that much. 

  • I have right here, this immaculate condition Meinl Byzance RAW BELL Ride and it sounds amazing.

  • Meinl described this cymbal as:

  • “The Untreated rebel creates a fat, projecting sound that has a wide spectrum. Dark symbols are not glazed and have their original appearance and sound characteristic they are distinguished by an earthy sound with a fairly short stain. This Meinl Byzance Ride cymbal is completely hand-hammered into shape and satisfies the highest demand of its users. Every Byzance cymbal is a piece of art and has its unique sound characteristics which can never be duplicated.” 

  • Well there ya go!  I agree, it’s absolutely gorgeous looking and sounding!

  • The craftsmanship is stunning! Deep, Heavy Hand Hammering with an unlathed, golden brushed finish! Raw appearance with an earthen tone. DARK and DRY sounding.

  • As you would imagine the stick attack is phenomenal. The Raw Bell measures 6.5” and cuts superbly. The profile is fairly low giving this massive 22” a lower pitch and darker colors. 

  • 3202 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 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. 

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

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