Meinl 22" Byzance Foundry Reserve Light Ride
The NEW Byzance Foundry Reserve collection is a limited run of select cymbals that showcases the incredible, sonically rich works of art that the Meinl cymbal smiths create with layers of tonality and nuance. That however, is only half of the beauty, as these stunning cymbals are visually striking, due to the one-of-a-kind hammering marks on each unique cymbal. The extra hammering creates many deep craters across the surface, which when coupled with the fully lathed top and bottom, it produces a clear, dry stick-attack note over a rich bed of low undertones – otherwise known as “the roar.”
