  • Some of the most COMPLEX sounding Hihats you will hear: 

  • Amazing Condition MEINL Byzance JAZZ Tradition 14” Hihats.  

  • These particular Byzance Jazz Traditions are exceptionally complex-sounding - even for Meinl.  

  • Very Light and airy sounding - VINTAGE meets modern tone. 

  • Meinl describes these hihats as: 

  • Lightweight hihat with a defined stick response, complex sound character, and a smooth chick. Blends well with other cymbals and has a comfortable feel.

  • Scattered lathing pattern — the top surface of the cymbals features spaced-out lathing patterns that expose the raw B20 for a hint of dry articulation — the narrow band of area near the edge is fully lathed to smooth out the sound and feel
  • Steep bow — Byzance Jazz Tradition cymbals are easily identified by their steep bow, which gives the cymbals an echo-y dark sound in the middle to higher frequency range — the steep bow shape also enhances stick .” 

  • And that indeed is accurate. 
  • As you can see the inner 12” has an alternate gold/brown wide lathing while the outer 2”  are golden and fully lathed. The underside is fully lathed for added warmth. 

  • The profile is very steep and umbrella-shaped which contributes to its very complex nature. 

  • At 916 and 1014 grams, they play like Light to Medium Light Hihats and are very responsive. 

  • They’ve comes alive with the slightest brush of a stick.   The complexity gives them an added lightness and delicate tone and response. 

  • As promised. Perfect for very low to medium loud settings. 

  • Fantastic shape.  Extremely clean. No issues.
