Fiery accents for your music.

Though bright refers to its finish, this series actually takes the traditional Byzance and darkens its sound. This is due to a finishing process that limits the high end as the cymbal is buffed to its brilliant look. Heavier models penetrate with directness and thinner ones shimmer with warmth. The overall combination of dark tonality and warm spread make Byzance Brilliant a great choice for any style. The MEINL Byzance Brilliant 14" china has bright overtones with a sizzling, trashy brash sound. This is a great cymbal for quick accents and very unique riding effects.

    I just finished playing my drums 10 minutes ago. I bought the 14" and 16". The 14" is the most beautiful cymbal i have ever heard. It's trashy with a short sustain (slightly longer than a good splash) and a very good pitch that complements the 16" very well. I replaced my 18" zildjian oriental china (Had a longer sustain and was not as trashy) with this. It has a short sustain, but not too short. I would recomend the Brilliant Byzance china to everyone I come across

    This bad boy packs a packs a punch!!! as soon as I got it (18") I was amazed at the finish, so shiny. Unlike other chinas ive owned (Zildjian:ZBT,ZHT,& A Custom)This china sounded amazing and trashy with the perfect amount of sustain, and it cuts through everything. it sounds just as good, if not better, than the Zildjian Oriental, except the Oriental is a tad bit Brighter sounding. If you are looking for an AMAZING high quality china, get this bad boy!
