About This Listing

Meinl Cymbal B21HR Byzance 21 -Inch Traditional Heavy Ride Cymbal


• Hand Hammered in Turkey from B20 Bronze Alloy: The defined stick sound and charismatic dark wash of the Byzance 21” Traditional Heavy Ride is rooted in the age-old techniques of making a hammered Turkish cymbal. Its hand hammered profile gives the cymbal a high caliber of rich tonality.
• Shimmering Response with A Dark Wash: Your stick response will be at the forefront with a great mix of mids to cut through. The hand hammering then creates waves of dark and warm undertones that dominate the sustain of the cymbal.
• Penetrating Bell: The bell is easily heard with a musical blend of tones as it activates the whole cymbal as you play it. Great for digging in when music levels peak, or for creating complex rhythms on the drum kit.
• Modern Versatility Rooted in Tradition: Byzance rides have become an immensely popular choice among top recording and touring artists, as well as clinicians and students. The ability these cymbals have to increase a sense of musicality on the drum kit makes them highly sought after for any style.

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. The overall presence that MEINL Byzance delivers is dark, buttery warmth that flows around crisp definition. The Byzance 21-inch heavy ride has a balanced, shimmering stick response with a defined ping and a blend of bright overtones together with dark wash underneath. The bell is penetrating and musical, but not overpowering. The heavy models produce a very focused attack with a slightly higher pitch than the medium version. Byzance rides are especially unique in that they truly deliver the sought after "Made in Turkey" sound with their hand hammered profiles.
