The Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Hi-Hat Set's sandblasted surface, various hammering techniques, and noticeable weight difference between the top and bottom cymbals combine to create an unmistakably crispy and articulate sound.
The transfer of the Sand Ride sound concept to a hi-hat has managed to combine a vintage sound and look with a modern transparent sound and clarity. The Sand Hat is a fantastic all-around hi-hat with lots of finesse and character, sporting a clear sound without being obtrusive. Full of nuances and presence, the Sand Hat can range from a silent whispering sound to a full sonic statement.
Benny Greb, who is proud to claim this set as his signature hat, calls it the most musical hi-hat he's ever heard.
Benny Greb is a prolific German drummer and clinician. He plays a large variety of music and has played rock with Stoppok and The Ron Speilman Trio, jazz with The Benny Greb Brass Band and Sabri Tulug Tirpan, funk with Jerobeam, reggae with Bobby McFerrin, classical with the NDR Orchestra on their Frank Zappa Project, fusion with 3ergezimmer and Wayne Krantz, and acoustic punk with Strom & Wasser.

Comments about Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Hi-Hat Set:
These hi hats are great, but I would recommend playing them in-store rather than purchasing them online. Each pair is totally unique in their sound and in their finish. They typically sound dry and warm.. I was surprised at how well they could be play loudly. They respond very well to all different styles of music in a unique way. However if you are playing heavy cymbals that have more "cut", these hats may not be the best idea.. Definitely give them a hear though.
