  • Description
  • Hand hammered in Turkey from cast B20 bronze alloy — the textured sound from the Byzance Big Apple Dark 20” Ride comes from its thin profile, light weight and undersized cup — the ride's elastic feel beautifully shades your sound from pop to bebop
  • Unlathed surfaces — the first thing you will notice about these cymbals are the unlathed surfaces — by not filing these cymbals down, so to speak, they are left with a bold and definitive dark attack with a mellow sustain that gets out of your way
  • Built for small rooms and clubs — this ride pays homage to the hearth of bebop, NYC, aka “The Big Apple” — out of this comes a sound built for jazz where the ride cymbal is the main focus, providing clarity, crashability and a dark mosaic of undertone
  • A unique line in the Byzance family of cymbals — the degree of bold darkness these cymbals provide, along with their smooth and mellow sustain, puts them in a unique sweet spot between our Traditional and Extra Dry Byzance series of cymbals
  • Modern versatility rooted in tradition — hand hammered into shape in Turkey using cast B20 bronze, Meinl Byzance cymbals are deeply rooted in traditional cymbal crafting methods, yet their old-world background is dialed-in to 21st century needs
