The MEINL Byzance Dual china cymbal combines the shimmering darkness of the Byzance Brilliant series with the low, earthy tones of the Byzance Extra Dry series. This effects cymbal cuts easily with a glassy brilliance, followed by a low, trashy growl. The decay is quicker than other chinas due to the extra-dry interior. Excellent for stacking. Marrying elements from across the Byzance spectrum, the Dual series is a study in contrasts—raw and finished, lathed and unlathed, fierce and grounded. Every cymbal is formed by lathe and hammered by hand. It’s a high-end cymbal series for professionals and advanced students.
