Adds a crucially dissonant sound to any setup.

This China Cymbal has an aggressive, brash attack with a complex spread. Trashy sound with an explosive response and long sustain.

Meinl's Byzance Traditional finish cymbals are handmade in Turkey using the traditional B20 bronze alloy. The profile of the cymbal is hand-hammered into shape. They are also lathed by hand. All this handwork goes into making a true musical instrument. These china cymbals have a nice dark character with an explosive attack and a long decay. Good for Latin, jazz, rock, pop and country . . . a good all around cymbal.

Meinl Byzance China Traditional Cymbal Features:

  • B20 bronze alloy
    Hand hammered into shape
    Utmost in musicality
    Extensive range

  • Byzance 18 inch china

    As reviewed by Zach on 7/26/2011

    i just got this cymbal, and this thing is great. it is the perfect china cymbal for metal, punk, hard rock, etc. it has a nice dark trashiness, but it is accompanied by a nice tone. the different sound characteristics blend together into a great sound, and ive never heard a cymbal quite like it. when in the mix with drums, it is not that loud, but its unique tone provides a nice cut which is, like i said, very unique and different from any other cymbal. also when in the mix, it has a noticeable quickness to it. this cymbal works great when playing music by bands like A Day to Remember, Asking Alexandria, Pierce the Veil, etc. i highly recommend this cymbal, its worth every penny

  • Amazing Cymbal

    As reviewed by Kevin on 7/20/2011

    This cymbal is the best 18in china I have ever owned... which is a long list. Blows the Zildjian china trash and the Sabian AAXtreme off the stage. Amazing cut with just enough low end to give it a well rounded tone. I have a matching med crash and the two work great together.

    This cymbal absolutely sucks! I got the 16" on Christmas 2010 and I completely hate it! It sounds like your throwing a rock at an old trash can. It has way too much overtone. Im switching to a Sabian AA Fast Chinese 18" which I recommend to everyone. They should really stop making this cymbal cause it sucks.
