Powerful and focused sound with a defined, bright bell.
The Byzance Ride Cymbals have a solid, full-bodied stick response with a clear ping.
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 ride 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.
