Overview

The Meinl Mike Johnston cymbal box set contains a variety of Byzance models that he chooses for his standard set up when conducting lessons and performing. Included in this box are a pair of 14" Byzance Extra Dry Medium Hi-Hats, 20" Byzance Extra Thin Hammered Crash, 21" Byzance Mike Johnston Signature Transition Ride, plus a free 18" Byzance Extra Dry Thin Crash. These cymbals deliver a musical blend of dark and dry attack with a short, trashy wash.

The 14" Extra Dry hi hats have a full-bodied and distinctive "chick" sound. The 20" Extra Thin Hammered Crash serves great as both a big crash and a light ride. At the heart of the setup is the Mike Johnston signature Transition ride cymbal. This cymbal is designed to respond with the perfect transition from articulate sticking to wide open crashing and back, while always maintaining musicality. Also highlighted in this set is a free 18" Byzance Extra Dry Thin Crash. This cymbal is great for adding a contrasting crash sound that works well as an accent cymbal, and it allows players to dig in for trashy riding effects.

Their hand-hammered and lathed surfaces with warm sounds and selection of models may be rooted in tradition, but Meinl Byzance cymbals are the ultimate choice when it comes to modern versatility. Every Byzance model is hand hammered into shape by cymbal artisans in Turkey, giving each cymbal its own unique and colorful voice.

    Comments about Meinl Mike Johnston Byzance Cymbal Set with Free 18" Byzance Extra Dry Thin Crash:

    Made the switch over to meinl after being a Sabian artist for years, this box set is amazingly matched and is an amazing value. The hi-hats sit perfectly in the mix while cutting just enough. The ride has amazing stick feel as well as a beautiful crash, and the two other crashes included are perfect matches for each other. If I cracked a cymbal, I'd replace it right away, I love these cymbals.

      Comments about Meinl Mike Johnston Byzance Cymbal Set with Free 18" Byzance Extra Dry Thin Crash:

      This set is great. Being in mostly worship settings, we (drummers) are always concerned about the volume for the audience. When we get complaints it typically can be traced back to cymbals and snare attack. This set corrects that problem. I was a bit worried at first, but after contacting Mike and asking a few questions, I decided to move forward and have been extremely happy. I have now replaced my Zildjian Ks (which I was very happy with) with this set as my standard setup.

          Comments about Meinl Mike Johnston Byzance Cymbal Set with Free 18" Byzance Extra Dry Thin Crash:

          I was nervous about spending the $ for these. I only found 2 reviews; 1 for and 1 against. However, I contacted Mike and asked how to best hear them before purchase. His wife wrote back and was really helpful. I went forward and have been so pleased. I play worship music in several different venues and was looking for cymbals that supported the mix and not overbearing. These do just that. They have great presence, but do not over power anything to make the audience's ears uncomfortable.
