Sporting a balanced bell and bow shape, medium weight throughout, and tight narrow blade lathing, the Meinl 22" Byzance Traditional Medium Ride exemplifies old-world cymbal craft in a package designed for modern playing. Built on a basis of B20 bronze alloy famed for its tempered characteristics and wide spread on the frequency spectrum, this all-purpose model additionally benefits from added volume and sustain thanks to the 22" size. A favorite of players in higher-decibel environments, the defined sticking and robust wash make for a hard-to-miss combo.

    Bought this to replace a very low-end ride that was part of the drum kit at my church. Issues were that the cheapo we had was overloud and sounded terrible (always a wonderful combination). This Byzance 22" didn't bring the volume down as much as we'd hoped it would, but it "hurts" less because it makes a very sweet and pleasing sound.
