Handmade in Turkey.
The Byzance Hi-Hat Cymbals have a wide dynamic spectrum with a soft, warm sound. Unobtrusive and controlled open hi-hat sound with a crisp chick.
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 hi-hat 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.
