Excellent set of cymbals :D

Comments about Meinl Byzance Vintage Series Benny Greb Sand Cymbal Set with Free 16 inch Trash Crash:

First of all, I've been dying to get my hands on meinl cymbals. They've been my dream brand so it's amazing to actually have some now. These cymbals are breathtaking right out of the box, especially the hats. Don't get me started on the sound. Man, these cymbals are blowing my mind every time I play them. The sound is fantastic. There is a darkness to all of them, which I personally love. The hats are exceptionally crisp with a nice wash and simmer when open - - - extreme stick definition. The 18" crash is beautiful. Big sound that is very "true" the whole way through. Some crashes will change tone or have a million overtones that happen when you lay into them, but not this one. It's great. The trash crash is explosive with a fast decay and has a godly sound. The ride is excellent and has one of the best bells I've ever heard. The finish on all these cymbals is truly beautiful. I play professionally with my blues rock band so we will see how these hold up! They look and feel like they are definitely meant to last. I definitely recommend these.

      I replaced a set of Zildjian K's, which are awesome cymbals, with these. I couldn't be happier. Thanks Benny Greb for creating the perfectly balanced line of cymbals.

                  **4 1/2 out 5 stars.** These are great cymbals, the hi hats, crash, and trash crash blow me away. I would give these 5 stars if it wasn't for the ride, it takes some getting used to so be aware. It is very washy even without crashing on it. The only real ride sound I get with mine is when I hit the bell which sounds great but is really disappointing. I dampened mine with moon gel and it made it sound better but does leave unsightly marks so I might switch to tape on the bottom. Overall great cymbals would defiantly recommend.

                    I tried many cymbals before and I have a own set also which are from different brands. I spent lots of time to match them up with a great balance and great dynamic contrast. But this amazing cymbal set already have what i want(Great balance, Great dynamic contrast,Good looking).It can be used for many music styles from pop to jazz. A SUPER nice cymbal set!!!

                        This set pairs nicely with the 22" Byzance ride already part of my kit. The bell on the ride can cut right through, yet all the cymbals have a soft (if you can call it that) feel and response to them. Beautiful looking cymbals. I've played Paiste Signatures and Zildjian K's for the last 25+ years. I've found a new brand in Meinl. Love these Byzance series cymbals.

                        These cymbals are truly amazing.

                        The sand hi hats take a little getting used to; most drummers are used to the bright twangs of A customs and AAXs, while these hats have a dry sonic sound to them. However, they do sound great and are able to mix in superbly without overstating itself.

                        The sand thin crash is another winner among crashes. It opens up fast with a smooth and clean wash that has a very slight hint of trashiness. A sweet accent, but its decay is a bit short and it isn't the loudest crash so it could get lost if used in a large venue without being mic'd.

                        Now the sand ride is the champion here. I mentioned that the ride can vary largely in sound from model to model, and that is sometimes not good. The first sand ride I obtained didn't sound like how I expected/wanted it to. It had a nice bell but the bow was just off. I traded for a different sand ride I was able to hear in person, and now I'm happier than ever. Mine has an anvil-like bell sound that I just can't get enough of, and it pierces through anything. The bow also has a nice wash underneath that can sometimes overwhelm the ping of the ride. This is preventable by hand control and may or may not be a con for you depending on how you like your rides to sound. The ping itself also has a nice feel and mine has a slight shimmering resonance from the bell. The crash-ability of it also varies, mine is not perfect, but if I need a lower gong-y crash, it's there. While I love my sand ride, I definitely recommend hearing the one you're getting in person.

                        The trash crash I cannot say much about since I sold mine early on. I did hear it a few times and I could see its use as a less-harsh china.

                        Overall, all of these cymbals are top notch in character and quality.
