The new line of handcrafted cymbals from Meinl is referred to as the Byzance Foundry Reserve collection. It is a NEW, very, limited selection of cymbals that showcases the stunning, sonically rich works of art that their cymbalsmiths create with layers of tonality and nuance; however, that is only half of the beauty, as they are visually striking from the one-of-a-kind hand-hammered marks. The extra hammering creates many deep craters across the surface. When this hammering is coupled with the fully lathed top and bottom, it produces a clear, dry stick-attack note over a lush bed of low undertones – otherwise known as “the roar.”
These Byzance cymbals are very limited at Drum Center of Portsmouth and incredibly special. Included with each cymbal will be a letter from Mr. Meinl, a Certificate of Authenticity, a pair of Meinl Stick & Brush Standard 5As, and 100% cotton cymbal protection gloves.
