Warm and natural vintage sounds.
Byzance Jazz Extra Thin Crashes are lightweight crashes with a washy, dark attack and fast, full-bodied response.
Byzance Jazz cymbals have a regular finish and contain outstanding sound qualities. They were developed for the natural vintage sound that traditional Jazz requires. With a complex blend of sounds, an overall darkness and a nice spread, these factors come together to form a warm, musical mix.
MEINL Byzance cymbals are completely hand-hammered into shape and satisfy the highest demands. Every Byzance cymbal is a piece of art and has its own unique sound characteristics which can never be duplicated.
The Byzance Jazz Series from Meinl features authentic jazz cymbals. They are handmade in Turkey, and are B20 bronze alloy cymbals. If you are looking for the super thin buttery feel of true vintage cymbals, this is it. The sound is not too loud or too bright but just what you need for a traditional jazz setting.
