Meinl use 6 different alloys to craft their cymbals which is more than any other cymbal manufacturer is using today. Because of this they are able to offer the widest range of cymbal sound characteristics available.
Meinl craft all types of cymbals from Hi-hats, Crashes, Crash-Rides, Rides, Splashes, China and FX cymbals. They also create cymbals for marching bands and orchestral purposes.
Meinl Byzance Vintage cymbals have an unusual sandblasted surface giving them a soft feel and a distinct matte finish. Their low, dark and somewhat dry-washy sound isn’t too soft or loud. With great stick definition and short sustain, you can dig into Byzance Vintage for total control at all times. It’s a sound that fits into any music that isn’t in the upper decibel levels.
The Vintage Pure Hihats feature a dry and very direct stick sound. Strong sticking response over deep and dry darkness. When played by foot they respond instantly with a cutting chick. Complete tonal control with a distinctive and earthy look.
Byzance Vintage Pure cymbals are created by a process in which the metal becomes very flexible. While this character gives them a unique response, slight deformations may occur at the cymbals edge. Such changes are within the accepted standards of this cymbal and will not affect the sound. Therefore, slight deformations at the edge are not covered by the warranty.
