  • RAW Top side, Fully lathed underside. Heavily Hand Hammered. Dark, dry and slightly complex! That is the joy that is these 14” Meinl Byzance Extra Dry Medium Hihats! 

  • Now what’s not so joyful is finding a Stock photo pair online and having to pay $570 without even getting to hear what they sound like!  

  • That sucks!!  But I’m head to alleviate that awfulness! 

  • Listen to this exact pair!  They’re thin and glorious! Surprisingly thin! 

  • Meinl describes these hihats as:  Warm and slightly trashy sound like your favorite old-school recording. Unlathed finish for a vintage grit and sizzle while still being articulate. Sensitive enough to not overpower the mix.”

  • 856 & 1396 grams. That’s a thin top all right! 

  • Dry and articulate sticking - compliments of that Turk style raw top side. A bit of light subtle warm and complex  shimmer, thanks to the fully lathed underside! Absolutely glorious chick tone - thanks to that 1396 bottom cymbal.  
  • Lower profile top for darker leanings and a medium low pitch. 

  • Raw bell gives this pair a nice cut - which is terrific when you have a thinner top hihat. 

  • Perfect from a whisper to a roar. Soft to loud.  Jazz to rock.

  • Incredible shape. Very little use. Absolutely gorgeous. And no where near $570! 

  • Save your money and listen to these so you can buy with confidence.
