With features like a sandblasted top and partially narrow blade-lathed bottom, medium-sized raw bell, and even weight through the bow, the Meinl 22" Byzance Vintage Sand Ride is designed to summon antique tone in a modern package. Built on a basis of versatile B20 alloy, the hammering over the bow provides a darker character contrasted by a bright sound on the bell. Designed in tandem with German drummer Benny Greb, this model accentuates sticking patterns with a clear articulation that's complemented by an almost instantaneous decay.

    Love the sound of this cymbal. I had not heard one in person so I did not know what to expect. It was a little brighter than I expected but I actually like that a lot now. It has very good stick definition, the Bell is quick and loud, and the crash is great. Already been used live twice in two weeks and its defiantly my favorite ride I’ve ever owned.

    This ride is amazing! I found my favorite to-go ride for any type of music. It got a sweet buttery feel to it and it crashes really well which I like since Im always crash-riding. It got a very nice volume overall for a 22 inch, it's not super loud but it'll also not die out in the mix. It just sits right in.
