Overview

Distinctive hi-hat cymbal due to its weight relation between top and bottom. Lightweight top produces a dark stick response with little wash, with a fat "chick" sound.

Dark and dirty. These are the words that describe the Byzance Extra-Dry hi hat cymbal. The surface is completely unlathed and untreated (crashes are lathed on the bottom). Just raw hand-hammered bronze--for a raw earthy sound. There is no wash. The extremely short sustain and stick definition come from the deep hammer marks layered with a more traditional hammering. Smoky sound, buttery feel and a 2-year warranty. Use for studio, fusion, Latin, R&B, country, rock, jazz and pop.

Awesome... Just AWEsome

By Hunter Haggy

Comments about Meinl Byzance Extra-Dry Medium Hi-Hat Cymbals:

im not a big Meinl fan but when i was these i just had to have them. i didnt really know anything about them they just kinda caught my eye. the same day i went down to record with my band and i discovered that these Hi-Hats have a really loud and crisp and clean sound in a recording and live it sounds just sooo much better sound like it was sent down from the gods. But anyways if you have the money to buy these i would recommend as your first choice!

Crisp and Dirty

By Christopher Y

from Woodbridge, VA

Comments about Meinl Byzance Extra-Dry Medium Hi-Hat Cymbals:

I play death metal and other heavy styles so at first I couldn't decide if I liked the stick definition or not. But after a day of playing (and a live show proving their capability to project): I knew they were the right ones. Crisp and unique, angry trashy with a little rust added. It's got a hi hat attack but the sustain for each is a washy nasty explosion like an fx pairing almost. I can't stress how well these sound. Get them if you like a great universal hat great for every music type. Could even be a great auxiliary hat for blasting and double hat footwork.

      Comments about Meinl Byzance Extra-Dry Medium Hi-Hat Cymbals:

      I'm impressed with the sound, control, and excellent articulation of these hats, particularly when they are played with brushes and/or multi rods. Though they may not be suitable for every genre or situation, they do have a distinctive and beautiful sound.
